Married couple, 9/11, Brielle

Their devastating loss brought them together

On September 11th Brielle Saracini and Sean McGuire both lost their fathers. They met at a summer camp for children who lost loved ones on September 11.

Despite a few setbacks on the way to the altar including Brielle being diagnosed with Stage 4B Hodgkin's lymphoma, she managed to beat it twice, and 16 years on, they have now tied the knot.

In front of 165 family and friends in Austin, Texas. Paying tribute to their fathers, Brielle told Philly.com:

“We had a nice moment of silence in our ceremony to recognise their presence in our relationship and in our lives. It was important for us to do so, to properly honor them and pay respects to how they raised us and shaped us.”

Sending our love to the new happy couple!
