A pair of newlywed deputies in Florida put their wedding photos on hold to save a man who was hit by a car. The bride, Detention Deputy Taylor Rafferty with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and the groom, Deputy Chris Rafferty, were posing for pictures when the man was hit in downtown Ocala.
The entire wedding party stopped what they were doing to rush to help the injured man – and all of them were still fully dressed in their wedding attire. The bride even directed traffic in her wedding dress with her bouquet in hand! Luckily, the man wasn’t severely injured and after he was treated by medics, the wedding party got back to celebrating.
“When you choose a career in law enforcement, you choose to never truly be off duty because anything can happen at any moment,” the Marion County Sheriff’s Office writes in a Facebook post. “Our greatest admiration goes out to the Raffertys and every member of their wedding party, who without a second thought took action to assist everyone involved in this incident. Thank you for dedicated service to our community in every way you know how!”
