MADISON, NJ – Pat McCormack, 91, was unable to attend her grandson’s November 7 wedding in Madison, New Jersey because she had suffered a fall, according to the Huffington Post.
When the couple found out, they decided to take a detour after taking their wedding portraits.
Brian Kurtulik and his new wife Lauren, showed up in her hospital room fully dressed in their wedding attire. The expression on her face was absolutely priceless. Photographer Rachel Nolan captured the precious moment and said it was her most liked photo of the year.
Our #1 most liked photo of the year is a bitter sweet one from @laur_eliz_nico and Brian's wedding. After their ceremony and all of their portraits were done, we took a detour to visit Brian's grandmother who wasn't able to make it to the wedding but had been oh so excited for their day. She was dressed in her wedding outfit and corsage, but had no idea we were coming. The look on her face when she saw her beloved Grandson on his wedding day was one of the sweetest moments of my career. She just kept looking at Lauren and Brian in shock that they came to visit her and there was not a dry eye in the room. Sadly, a few weeks ago, she passed away and the world lost a special woman. But these two, they gave her one of the best days to remember and made her the happiest grandma ever. It was truly a special moment and it just speaks volumes to the kind of people Lauren and Brian are.
