Lianne Johnson wanted to get married before she gave birth to twins daughters. But her fiancé, Jason, works for the army and is away from home about 90% of the time.
Lianne ended up going into labor early and getting put on bed rest at the hospital, which made it that much more difficult to even think about wedding planning. So the hospital staff swung into action, planning a wedding for Lianne during the week her fiancé got a chance to come home.
"Most of it was a total surprise," Lianne tells HLN's Evening Express. "They just found out that we were going to have a couple of close friends come in as witnesses and kind of do it in the hospital bed. They weren’t going to go for that."
The couple got everything they needed: a surgical technician did Lianne's hair and makeup, flowers were delivered from the gift shop, a cake was baked by the hospital caterer, free rings were donated by a local jeweler and the hospital staff band even performed the wedding march!
Can you believe it took them less than 24 hours to pull it all together?!
"It was a dream come true," Lianne says. "It’s probably the best thing that’s ever happened to me. And the only thing able to compare is when they help us bring two beautiful girls into the world!”
