Most weddings involve some tears, but when Celia and Geff Kinzel exchanged vows in the chapel of Nationwide Children’s hospital in Columbus, OH, there was an added layer of emotion.
After their 2-year-old son, Logan, was diagnosed with brain cancer for the second time, the couple decided to move up their wedding and say, “I do,” in the hospital where Logan is a patient. “We were so happy that Logan was able to come down,” Celia’s mom, Megan Dempsey, told ABC News. “It was just a nice day for Celia and Geff and a nice break from what’s really been such a difficult time.”
After the bittersweet ceremony, Megan snapped a powerful snapshot as the bride and groom carried their toddler back to his hospital room, and the moving image has since gone viral. “Everyone was really touched by [the photo],” Celia said. “I really hope from all of this, that it does bring awareness to pediatric cancer. Before this happened to Logan, I thought it was rare. I hope this sheds some light on it and people see that it’s common.”
