One couple's wedding day was extra special -- and thanks to the generosity of others --most of the Lehigh County ceremony was donated.
John Hanczaryk was critically wounded in Afghanistan three years ago.
"I went to Afghanistan, and I was in combat. Basically, a 400-pound armored Humvee door blew off, hit me in the back. Knocked me down like an incline over some large rocks, so I hurt my neck, my back. I had multiple surgeries on my right and left knees, multiple operations on my back," Hanczaryk said.
All those surgeries and years of waiting for disability claims took a financial toll.
His disability has made money extremely tight, and forced him and his fiance Randi to put their wedding plans on hold--until Sunday.
Fogelsville's Glasbern Inn provided the venue and several vendors offered their services for free.
"From the bottom of my heart, thank you," said the groom, John Hanczaryk. "Without you, this day would be far in the future."
The non-profit Keystone Wounded Warriors organized the effort.
And there's more good news for Hanczaryk.
His social security disability was recently approved.
