Wheelchair Bound Groom Stands For First Dance

A wheelchair-bound groom emotionally stood for the first time with the aid of his friends to dance with his wife at their wedding. Former college baseball prospect, Chance Veazey, was paralyzed from the waist down when he was involved in a motor scooter collision in Athens, Georgia, in 2009. He was left with left with life-altering injuries, including a severely damaged spine and a fracture to his 10th vertebra in his back. But just over ten years later, with the help of his three friends Rhett Hammond, Cody Cottle and John White, Chance rose to his feet, held his wife and slow danced to their favorite song, ‘Because You Loved Me’ by Celine Dion. No one other than his three friends and new wife, Molly, knew about the dance, which Chance had practiced three times with his soon-to-be wife. In video filmed by the groom’s aunt, guests can be heard whooping and hollering as they watch Chance move to the music while embracing Molly. Eventually, his tearful mom Darby comes to dance, a moment she never thought would happen after Chance’s horrific accident.
