PHILADELPHIA, Pa. - A Northampton County couple picked a unique place to tie the knot, so their newborn baby can see that special moment.
Amber and Joshua Fox of Bangor got married at the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Saint Christopher's Hospital in Philadelphia.
Their son, Lucas Fox, was born last month.
But, Lucas had a string of health problems, including an obstruction in his intestines and a leak in his left lung.
But a couple of medical procedures have put Lucas on the road to recovery, just in time for his parents' wedding.
"We wanted to have his eyes open. We wanted him to actually look at us both and smile and be able to actually see the ceremony and see us actually get wed," said Amber.
Joshua added, ".. he has my crickey grin and he knew all the ladies were looking and talking about him."
This is the first time the hospital's Neonatal Care Unit hosted a traditional wedding ceremony.
