Father Gave Daughter Away At Wedding From Hospital Bed

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A father was able to give his daughter away at her wedding from his hospital bed in Daytona Beach.

Bob Huff says he was going to put off surgery after experiencing abdominal pains on Thursday, but his daughter insisted he go to the hospital. As he was being prepped for surgery to unblock an obstructed bowel Friday morning, Bobbie Huff and her groom-to-be got married on the sand. Her brothers gave her away.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports the whole wedding party then went to Halifax Health Medical Center to repeat the ceremony.

Pastor Willey Lowe says it’s rare to have two weddings with the same couple in the same day, but this was his first wedding in a hospital.
