Paramedic Bride Rescues Family Members On Her Wedding Day

This is one photo to remember.

Out of all the photos snapped on Sarah Ray's wedding day, this one will be remembered the most.

Ray's mother photographed her daughter standing in front a car crash that members of her family were involved in, including her father, according to Global News.

The accident happened just two miles away from their wedding ceremony in Clarksville, Tennessee. Ray's father and grandparents were on their way to the reception when a driver ran a red light and hit their vehicle. Ray and her husband Paul are both paramedics, and it was only moments after the couple said their "I dos," that they received a call and rushed over to help.

No one was seriously hurt in the accident but her grandmother was sent to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

"One of the first things she said to me was sorry she ruined my wedding day," Ray told the Associated Press. Ray assured her grandmother she had done no such thing.

The photo was reposted by Montgomery County, Tennessee's Facebook page and has since gone viral.

Even her wedding day wouldn't stop this first responder from savin' the day.

“As long as [my grandmother] was OK then she was fine with me going back [to the reception],” Ray told News Channel 5 in Nashville, Tennessee.
