“Bride-to-be Rachelle Friedman and her groom, Chris Chapman, give new meaning to the marriage vows pledging to love, honor and support one's partner "in sickness and in health." One year after the bride was paralyzed from a freak accident during her bachelorette party, the couple will marry.” Rachelle’s injury came just one month before her wedding when one of her bridesmaids playfully pushed her into the shallow end of the swimming pool. With the wedding so close, the couple postponed the nuptials. Now, a year and a few months later, Chris is keeping his vow to Rachelle and says he is excited to see her rolling down the aisle, pushed by her father. They plan to honeymoon in Fiji.
