On April 3 Congressman Madison Cawthorn, who was paralyzed 7 years ago in a car crash, stood up in front of his fiancé at their wedding ceremony. Wearing custom-made leg braces, he was on his feet next to his bride, Christina Bayardelle, as they stood for their vows.
In a tweet celebrating his marriage, Cawthorn writes:
On April 3rd of 2014 my life changed. A car accident put me in a wheelchair. On April 3rd of 2021 my life has once again changed. Marrying Cristina Bayardelle, now Cristina Cawthorn is the greatest honor, privilege, and adventure of my life. Trust in God. He moves Mountains!
