    Bride-to-be looks beyond life-changing accident

    Hope they live happily ever after.

    Bride-to-be looks beyond life-changing accident
    By Phil Gast, CNN
    July 20, 2011 6:52 p.m. EDT


    (CNN) -- Fourteen months after she was left paralyzed by a pool mishap at her bachelorette party, Rachelle Friedman is having the wedding of her dreams Friday -- and then some.

    Joining Friedman and fiance Chris Chapman will be between 100 and 120 family members and their closest friends, witnesses to the couple's can-do spirit.

    "It just feels like a love story to people," said Rachelle's mother, Carol. "They are really great together."

    Wednesday was a day of continued wedding preparations for Friedman, 25, of Knightdale, North Carolina, just east of Raleigh.

    The quadriplegic in recent weeks has practiced for the couple's first dance, a special moment even if she will be in her wheelchair. Friedman's father, Larry, will push her down the aisle, so that she can hold a bridal bouquet as she approaches Chapman, 28.

    Don't ask what clinical trials can do for you, ask what you can do for clinical trials.

      As I understand it this is a member of CC. I'm sure we all wish her and her future husband the best.

        Yes, I wish her the best, as I'm sure we all do.

        Maybe this should be in the Life forum? Perhaps that's what Oxy meant?

          Sure I wish her the best. But I hope that "is having the wedding of her dreams Friday" was just another press sensationalism strike.

            Yes, you'd expect in the wedding of her dreams she would be fully able bodied.

                awesome..I am sure the love and the commitment and the feelings of family and friends support and the beauty of all that in one place is a dream come true for many..and being able to look outward..and see all of these blessings is the key.

                COngrats again...
