CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — After saying “I Do,” a bride rushed to help her grandparents and father, who got into a car accident while they were on the way to her wedding reception.

Sarah Ray and her husband, Paul, received a call that her grandparents and father’s car was hit by a driver who ran a red light, according to FOX8. They were two miles away from the church. Ray and her husband are both paramedics.

After hearing the news, Ray’s instincts kicked in and she ran to the scene, still wearing her wedding dress, to help her family. Nobody was hurt, but Ray’s grandmother was taken to the hospital for an evaluation.

“Any other responder that had come across a wreck, whether it be their family or not, or whether they had been in their wedding dress or not, would have made sure if everyone was okay,” Ray said with her husband by her side to Inside Edition.

Ray’s mother took a photo of the bride while she was on the way to the scene of the accident.

“I love this photo because it shows her character and accentuates her beauty,” the mother said.

The photo has received over 12,000 likes and over 5,000 shares.

“We will never forget our wedding day ever,” the couple said.
