Bride dies shortly after getting married to the love of her life (photos)

A Connecticut woman married the love of her life from her hospital bed on Dec. 22, two years after she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Bridesmaid Christina Karas captured the triumph and joy moments after Heather Lindsay, 31, and David Mosher said their “I do’s.”

The image of Lindsay throwing her arms up has since gone viral.

 

“She’s getting to shout from the rooftops that she loves Dave and is able to say, ‘I’m his wife,’” Karas told TV station WFSB.
“It reminds me of someone who is crossing the finish line of a marathon or something,” Mosher, 35, said of the photo.

Lindsay succumbed to her illness hours after she tied the knot at St. Francis Hospital in Hartford, Conn.

The couple met at a dance class in 2015, and within a year Mosher was ready to propose.

He did just that, complete with a horse-drawn carriage, after Lindsay was diagnosed with cancer Dec. 23, 2015.
Over the next year, Karas helped Lindsay plan the wedding of her dreams.

“She was so hopeful,” Karas told NBC. “The way we would talk about it, you always kind of felt this isn’t it.”

They pushed up the wedding originally scheduled for Dec. 30 and intended to just lay the wedding dress across Lindsay, whom they feared was too weak to put it on. But she made it into her gown and to the hospital’s chapel, where she exchanged vows with Mosher.

“That moment right there was like, ‘Death, I’m not afraid of you! I am so in love and I am going to celebrate that love right now,’” Karas recalled.

Lindsay was buried Saturday, the day that was meant to be her wedding day.
