Paralyzed man walks down aisle with his bride

Ficarra was able to stand walk during the ceremony thanks to a robotic-like device called an Ekso. The battery-powered Ekso is portable and straps onto Ficarra, allowing him to walk with a normal gait. Two therapists walked behind him just in case, but he walked the whole way himself.

“It feels great to be married,” pronounced Ficarra, 30, who broke his neck in a freak boating accident in 2011. “And I am so happy to have met my goal of walking at my wedding.”

We live in amazing times.
