A couple married at a Texas hospital -- after their wedding was canceled due to a car accident -- said doctors provided the ceremony's music.
Larry "Trey" Cooksey, 20, who required an eight-pint blood transfusion and still needs a ventilator to breathe as a result of the January car crash, married Jessie Cookey, 19, who lost her unborn child in the crash and was discharged from the hospital after five days, in the chapel of The Texas Medical Center in Houston, the Houston Chronicle reported Friday.
Cooksey, who doctors said is expected to make a full recovery and may be discharged in about two weeks, said he did not want to wait any longer for the wedding, which had originally been scheduled for late January.
"I wanted to marry her," he said. "I love her."
The ceremony featured surgery resident Dr. Sasha Adams on violin and urology resident Dr. Jennifer Taylor sang "Ave Maria."
"I can't imagine a better wedding," Cooksey said. "It turned out great."
