Bride Meets The Man Who Recieved Her Late Son's Heart At Her Wedding

Be prepared to cry! I am balling right now!

In Palmer, Alaska, Groom Kelly Turney surprised his bride Becky with a special last-minute addition to the bridal party at their wedding. 

The honorary groomsman Jacob Kilby and Becky met for the first time at the wedding. Kilby was the recipient of Becky's late son Triston Green's heart. Green died in 2015 at the age of 19.

Kilby's heart transplant from Green saved his life.

Becky got to listen to her son's heart in Kilby's chest right at her wedding! As you can imagine (and as you probably are right now) everyone was in tears!

"I knew about this surprise but nothing prepares you for the beauty of this moment. I met a man named Jacob Kilby yesterday who is alive because of a heart transplant received from this bride's 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 groomsman, carrying Tritson’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." #LoveWhatMatters #Beautiful #Family #Love #InstaLove #LoveWins #LoveAlwaysWins #BelieveInLove #CherishEveryMoment #LoveEachOther #Kindness #Hope #Joy #Compassion #FindYourJoy #LoveIt #ShowLove #GiveLove #Giving #ThankYou #SmallActs #BeLove #WeAreLove #AlwaysLove #LoveAlways #ChooseLove #SpreadLove #LoveMore #MomLife #Motherhood ❤️ ❤️ Credit: Love Adventured
