Fri 21-11-2014

 A bride got the surprise of her life when it came time for her first dance with her new husband.

The groom, is paralyzed from the chest down after suffering a spinal cord injury in a motorcycle accident after he returned from serving in Afghanistan.

The accident left Johnson, who has post-traumatic stress disorder after serving in Afghanistan and rode motorcycles for the rush, in a wheelchair.

Johnson had a surprise for his bride Michelle. With the help of some friends, Johnson rigged a harness that would allow him to stand during his first dance with Michelle.

Jennifer Davis, the LinneaLiz photographer who snapped photos of the dance, said the bride couldn’t believe what she saw.

"When Michelle walked in the whole room was quiet, she had no idea what was going on. She saw Joey standing and she had a giant smile on her face which quickly turned to tears. Everyone was in tears," Davis recalled.
