Firefighters' touching act for bride stranded on wedding day

A stranded bride who attempted to walk to her wedding had a very unusual ceremony entrance thanks to a group of helpful firefighters.

In March, Los Angeles County firefighters were at the scene of a two-car accident when they noticed a woman in a long wedding dress and her two bridesmaids attempting to walk through traffic, holding their dresses up to prevent them from getting dirty.

Though it wasn’t supposed to rain, it was a “muddy mess” of a day, firefighters said.

Intrigued by the entertaining sight, the crew asked the bride if she needed help.

“She said, ‘Yeah we’re getting married and I’m late and my limo is stuck in traffic and I’m trying to get to the wedding!’” a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Firefighters told Yahoo.

“As soon as they cleared it, they threw her in the fire engine, and drove them up to the wedding venue.”

With the bride and her bridesmaids in tow, the fire truck turned into the event venue, flashing the engine lights to make her arrival really special.

“It almost looked like she was escorted to the event,” the spokesman said.

When he was at the station this week, the spokesman noticed a photo of the bride with her four rescuers hung on the wall, and posted it on his Instagram page.

A few weeks after the wedding, the printed photo arrived at the fire station with a thoughtful note from the grateful newlyweds reading “thanks for saving our wedding, the Gormans”.

Firefighters say they still “have no idea” what the bride’s first name is, but the picture is now hanging on the wall with pride.
