This is a wedding that all the guests will remember
forever. For the groom’s surprise for his soon-to-be wife completely turned
their lives upside down.
Up until now, life has not been kind to this man. 13

soon-to-be wife’s cheeks and she is completely perplexed. Too stunned to speak
a single world. She sees her soul mate standing for the first time ever.
Kevin Taylor worked for this moment for weeks and
months. He began physiotherapy secretly behind his girlfriend’s back, training
for countless hours, until the seemingly impossible came true. He learned to
walk with his prosthetic, despite the indescribable pain caused by his illness.
He managed to strengthen once atrophied muscles in his leg. Until the point
where he was able to stand and look at his future wife in the eyes on their
