Town Throws Dream Wedding for Triple Amputee Marine

Share |

Cpl. Juan Dominguez and his beautiful wife Alexis got married April 27, 2013, in Temecula, Calif.

But Temecula wasn't just the town in which they got married; Temecula threw the wedding for the couple.

Juan, a Marine, lost his legs and right arm when he stepped on an IED during a tour in Afghanistan. So, when their hero and his bride were ready to tie the knot, the people of Temecula donated everything for the event — the venue, rehearsal dinner, entertainment, photography, flowers, cake, makeup ... $30,000 in serivces, all told.

This is the first time, I guess, I've actually been able to keep my legs on," said Juan, who has undergone two dozen surgeries following the explosion in Afghanistan. "What better to do than walk down the aisle with my wife?"

Said Alexis: "Every girl wants a dream wedding, and this is my dream wedding, especially because I'm marrying the man of my dreams."
