A Paralyzed Veteran Surprised His Bride By Dancing At Their Wedding | Task & Purpose

Kiersten Downs and Thomas Martineau hadn’t planned on dancing at their wedding. The 32-year-old Martineau, an Air Force veteran, had been confined to a wheelchair after a motorcycle accident in 2008, and while the couple talked about how they wanted their first dance as a married couple to play out, they didn’t really have a plan.

“I thought I was going to sit on his lap and roll around and grab the kids to dance and sort of improvise,” Downs, 34, and herself an Air Force veteran, told Task & Purpose. She met Martineau in 2014, years after his accident, and after a prolonged engagement, she was itching to finally tie the knot.
