Julia Hollifield was looking forward to her wedding for months, but the day before the wedding, the unthinkable happened: her grandmother was hospitalized with pneumonia.
Unfortunately, grandma wasn’t allowed to leave the hospital in her condition, and it seemed Julia was going to have to get married without her grandmother present. Julia was heartbroken and her grandmother was devastated.
Neither of them wanted grandma to miss the wedding, but there seemed to be no way around it — the wedding would have to carry on without grandma there.
But Julia just wasn’t okay with not having her grandmother be part of her big day, so between the ceremony and the reception, she made a stop by the hospital. Julia desperately wanted her grandmother to see her in her wedding dress, so she took a detour on her way to the wedding reception.
Not only did Julia and her husband stop at the hospital — the entire bridal party went to the hospital as well!
When grandma saw Julia in her gorgeous white gown, she was shocked. Julia gave her a huge hug and told her, “you couldn’t come, so we came to you.”
Both Julia and grandma got emotional when they hugged — they were both so happy that they could be together on Julia’s big day.
