Real Wedding - Jackee and Dustan in San Antonio, Texas

They first met at a fire station, and there was definitely a spark between Jackee and Dustan! “It didn't take long for us to fall in love. It is true what they say - when you meet 'The One' you know right away! It was challenging since we where not supposed to be dating, me being an officer and him being a firefighter in the same department. But, after I left the department, I moved in with Dustan. And he purposed to me."

The couple faced many challenges, and continue to face the worst together: “Dustan was bleeding on his brain stem. Causing right sided weakness. It was a nightmare, we spent three months in the hospital for rehab and treatment since they would not operate. During that stay we found out that his cancer was back."

Doctors said there was nothing they could do so they decided to get married in in the ICU in pyjamas and fire department shirts, “We Skyped my parents, in Texas, and the rest of Dustan's family who gathered at his grandma's house. Since then Dustan has been in and out of the hospital. The doctors in Wisconsin put him on a chemotherapy that he took everyday. They said it would prolong his life for six months. Shortly after that we found out I was pregnant, with our daughter Hope. But we know that Dustan is on borrowed time. His cancer, Synovial Cell Sarcoma, is very rare and aggressive they say its 2% of all diagnosed cancers. So things like seeing our children graduate or walking Hope down the aisle, we know it is very likely that Dustan won't be able to do."

This has to be one of the most touching weddings we've encountered. Take a look at the photographs taken by Expose The Heart.
