Nursing homes aren't usually known as places to find your true love, but that's what happened to Raymond Egloff and Susan Chabrow.
The couple celebrated their love by getting married in the place where they met - a nursing home in Canada.
Several attendees were in tears because Chabrow, who usually uses a wheelchair, made it down the aisle Thursday with the assistance of a walker.
The crowd applauded after the couple exchanged vows and kissed during the 20 minute ceremony inside the nursing home dining room.
And when they were introduced as "Mr. and Mrs. Egloff," the couple held hands and Egloff, 79, said "hallelujah."
Following the wedding, the couple sat next to each other and posed for photos. Each time they were asked to pose for pictures, Chabrow would playfully put up her left hand, showing off her wedding ring. For more, read the story.
