Marathon bombing survivor gets married at Fenway

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - It's amazing to see how far the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing have come in just one year, they're walking again, running again, dancing again and even getting married.

Thursday one of the survivors got married at Fenway Park with a reception at the Hotel Commonwealth featuring the Dropkick Murphys.

Newlyweds Marc and Jennifer Fucarile came out of Fenway and sealed their wedding day with a kiss.

But the path to happily ever after came only after a year of recovery for Marc who lost a leg in the bombings.

More than 100 guests arrived in blue and yellow Duckboats; among them were other survivors like Paul and JP Norden who were with Marc last year at the finish line and were also severely hurt.

But this day, family and friends say, is one to cherish.

“They’ve had a very trying year and we’re very proud of them and we’re happy to celebrate today,” Julie Callahan, a cousin, said.

The vows were touching and the antics were high.

“Marc was going to run away but he couldn’t, he said, if he had two good legs he would,” Dan Callahan, Marc’s uncle, said.

When the happy couple got onboard the Duckboat as husband and wife friends said it marked a new chapter for the couple where April can be a celebration of love.

“A happy ending to such a challenging time, they have the rest of their lives to live now,” Nina Mastropietro, a friend, said.

The wedding and reception where provided by a local event planner and several vendors also contributed to make this a truly Boston wedding.
