Triple Amputee Marine Hero Gets His Dream Wedding!
Marine Corporal Juan Dominguez lost both legs and his right arm in an explosion in 2010 while serving in Afghanistan. On April 27, 2013, the community of Temecula, California came together to give Juan and his bride Alexis their dream wedding. Everything for the event from the reception venue and rehearsal dinner to the entertainment, photography, flowers, cake and makeup, was donated by various local businesses to the young couple-- over $30,000 in services!
"We've been waiting for this so long and it's finally real," said Alexis. "Every girl wants a dream wedding and this is my dream wedding because I'm marrying the man of my dreams."
"I'm a little bit shorter but my brain's still here and my heart's still here. I'm still the same," said Juan. "What could be better than keeping my legs on and walking down the aisle with my wife?"
Special thanks to wedding coordinator Jennifer Molloy of Amore Events who helped make this video and dream wedding possible!
