RALEIGH, N.C. — Amanda and Edwin Acevedo were planning to get married when Amanda went into pre-term labor.
According to WakeMed Children's Hospital in Raleigh, the couple mentioned to their nurse that they were going to the courthouse to get married.
Hospital staff suggested the two should get married at WakeMed Raleigh Campus so their son, Oliver, could be apart of the wedding.
The couple immediately agreed.
In lieu of flowers, the beautiful bride walked down the aisle with Oliver as her "wedding bouquet." Their doctor, nurse practitioners, and nurses from the unit all attended the celebration.
