BOSTON STRONG WEDDING

Marc Fucarile and Jen Regan were in the midst of planning their wedding when two bombs exploded near the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15, 2013.

Fucarile was gravely injured in the attacks, breaking his spine and losing his right leg. He was the last of the survivors to leave the hospital after a 100-day stay.

On April 17, 2014 -- just a little over a year later -- the couple was able to tie the knot at Fenway Park, thanks to a lot of strength, perseverance and help from Boston-area event planning company Gracie Lou Events, who donated the dream wedding through their Love Runs Through Boston contest.

The color theme for Thursday's celebration was blue and yellow, to match the "Boston Strong" logo. The band Dropkick Murphys even stopped by to do a surprise performance.

“We’re super proud of [Marc] and Jen,” Julie Callahan, the groom's cousin, told CBS Boston. “They’ve had a very trying year and we’re very proud of them and so happy to celebrating here today.”

Check out photos from the beautiful celebration below.
