Cuero Nursing and Rehabilitation Center recently hosted a wedding ceremony.
The bride, Stephanie Liendo, and groom, Kerry Donovan Franklin, were married in front of friends and family.
The bride's father, Leroy, is a resident at the Cuero facility, so the family decided to host the wedding in the facility so Stephanie's father could attend. Leroy escorted Stephanie down the aisle to a traditional wedding song played by a family friend. Tears formed in the guests' eyes as Leroy gave his daughter away. "This is for him and God," Stephanie said before the wedding started. "It means so much to me that my father is able to be here."
After the wedding ceremony, the party went to a local church for further celebrations.
