Expectant mother Deborah Callandret of Independence, Oregon was set to marry her fiancé Shane on March 28. But the couple’s 11 a.m. wedding plan was derailed when the bride’s water broke early that morning. Deborah wasn’t due to give birth to her daughter for another four weeks, so she never expected to be admitted to the hospital on her wedding day. But what happened next was even more surprising.
After the couple arrived at Salem Health Family Birth Center, doctors determined that the mom-to-be had not yet gone into labor, but admitted her into a hospital room. When they learned that the couple was supposed to get married that day, the nursing staff offered to throw them a wedding in the hospital! Then they helped Deborah celebrate her nuptials in style.
According to local news station KEZI, the impromptu wedding featured flowers and decorations gathered and created by hospital employees, food and non-alcoholic beverages from the nutrition services department, and an emotional service from chaplain Ken Morse. The newlyweds arranged for their marriage license to be faxed to the hospital, the Huffington Post reported.
