A paralysed groom did something unbelievable for his bride. After encountering a tragic motorcycle accident following a 10-month tour in Afghanistan in 2012, Sgt. Joey Johnson was paralysed from the chest down. He has been using a wheelchair since then.

According to his wife Michelle, Joey suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder after his stint in Afghanistan. This made him turn into motorcycle riding. Unfortunately, Joey got into an accident just four months after meeting Michelle at a country music concert.

But Joey’s condition didn’t stop him from making Michelle’s dreams come true on their special day. In order for Joey to get up and dance with his bride, his friends created a special harness for him to use on their wedding day. Of course, Michelle didn’t have a single clue about that.

It was certainly an emotional moment for the couple when they danced ” A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. In her interview with ABC News, Michelle said: “Everyone was crying in the room. It was so amazing to be eye to eye with him again and such a dream come true.”

Here’s the tearjerking video of Joey and Michelle’s first couple dance.
