All the Feels - Paralyzed at 17, Jaquie Walked Down the Aisle

Jaquie Goncher was paralyzed at 17 after diving into a pool, but she worked hard and was able to walk down the aisle at her wedding.

August 18, 2016

You may remember hearing the incredible story of Jaquie, the wheelchair-bound woman who worked for months so she could walk down the aisle at her wedding. Today, Jaquie was gracious enough to share the story herself. Terrified that she may never walk again after a diving injury at only 17, Jaquie was determined to find and push beyond her limits, and she even surprised herself! She wanted so badly just to be able to stand at the altar, but by the end of the night she had been walking and dancing for hours. Her message to anyone overcoming hardships? “Have faith and persevere.” Jaquie's inspirational wedding pictures were taken by Love Stories by Halie and Alec, and you can check out the whole wedding gallery here
