A car accident may have paralyzed Ohio resident Stevie Beale seven years ago, but it didn't dim her resolve that she would one day walk down the aisle as a bride.
She fulfilled the promise she made to herself on her wedding day in August when she walked down the aisle of a Toledo church to marry 32-year old Jared VanAusdale.
Beale was a passenger in a vehicle driven by her best friend when the friend lost control on the road and was killed in addition to severely injuring Beale.
She gained inspiration to recover as much of her physical strength as possible after meeting another paralysis victim named Bri Mulligan who was involved in a life-altering train crash. Through Mulligan, she met her fiancé and now husband VanAusdale.
Assisted by a metal walker, Beale managed to walk down the aisle on her wedding day and after the nuptial ceremony, her new spouse swept her up in his arms to carry her down the aisle to begin their newlywed life together.
Beale, who was involved in numerous athletic pursuits prior to the accident that occurred when she was a high school senior, now speaks to teen groups about the consequences of the choices they make in life.
