“Michael Krystek and Sara Estela exchanged their wedding vows next to Sara’s father’s bedside, days before he died of cancer.
After experiencing breathing problems Christmas Day, Juan Estela was admitted to Middlesex Hospital.
Tests revealed he had terminal cancer, and his wish to walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding in May wouldn’t happen.
‘We wanted something fairytale like,’ Sara Estela said. ‘Well, I wanted something fairytale like.’
As her father’s health continued to fail, Sara Estela made her dad’s dream come true on Saturday.
Her gown was a yellow PPE, along with masks and gloves.
‘Just having him there is what mattered to me,’ she said.
With the minister, friends and family on Zoom, the bride and groom said, ‘I do.’”
