Bride lost son before marriage, but her husband gave her an amazing surprise during their wedding

“I knew about this surprise but nothing prepares you for the beauty of this moment.”  Love Adventured wrote on Facebook.

I met a man named Jacob Kilby yesterday who is alive because of a heart transplant received from this brides son, Triston. Her son couldn’t be here for the wedding day but Becky’s groom Kelly Turney , surprised her by flying Jacob up to Alaska to stand in as a groomsmen, carrying Triston’s heart.

Kelly stopped the ceremony to introduce Jacob to Becky for the first time. Everyone was so moved by this and I had to share this amazing story. I had the pleasure of hearing Jacob share his gratitude and plans for a heart healthy life to Triston’s sister before the ceremony.

I am so blown away by his story and his amazing outlook on life. You couldn’t ask for a better recipient to receive such a gift.
