A Rustic Fall Wedding at Genetti Manor in Dickson City, Pennsylvania

The real star of Cassie Davies (27 and a speech language pathologist) and Matt Michaylo's (27 and a special education teacher) wedding day is the love story that led to it. They were a couple when Cassie got very sick. She contracted something that left her unable to use her legs and almost took her life. When she came home from the hospital, Matt proposed to her. She went to rehab to relearn how to walk. Cassie gritted and smiled and assured everyone she would be OK. She fought hard to recover, with Matt supporting her every step. She was determined to walk down the aisle with her dad, and she did. The inspiring couple were married in a traditional Catholic ceremony before joining their family and friends at Genetti Manor in Dickson City, Pennsylvania, for a celebration of love and life. —Meghan Overdeep
