Bride Plans Her Wedding in 24 Hours for Dying Mom
Fri 07-02-2014

Aly Femia of Connecticut planned to spend 3 years planning the perfect wedding. But her mom received a terminal-cancer diagnosis, prompting her to pull together a whirlwind ceremony, white gown and all, within 24 hours so that her mother wouldn’t miss her big day.

"My favorite part of the day was having my mom see me in my wedding dress, wearing a string of her pearls, and seeing her smile," Femia, née Enia, told BuzzFeed.

"I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day."
