The 23-year-old was horrifically injured, but chose to marry while in the hospital.
Sometimes there really is no need for words. And the emotions in this heart-warming video of a pair of newlyweds taking their first dance together is the perfect example.
The bride, Oksana, lost her legs and four fingers when a mine exploded as the couple were walking home at the end of March. Victor, the groom, was left unharmed. However, one month after sustaining the injuries, and undergoing four surgeries, Oksana still needs rehabilitation and is set to receive prosthetics.
Despite her grueling recovery, the beautiful bride was still able to say “I do.” So take a minute to witness Oksana, a nurse from Lysychansk, dance with her groom, Victor, while in the hospital in Lviv. It will provide a moment of joy and a reminder that in holy matrimony, love can truly conquer all.
