They say in every dark cloud there is a silver lining – this couple proves it’s true.
The worst thing ever to happen to James Costello was his injuries in the Boston Marathon bombing but this dark cloud definitely did have a silver lining – in the form of Krista D’Agostino.
James met Krista on his first day at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital after several surgeries for the injuries he received during the marathon.
Over the next six weeks James fell in love with his nurse, Krista, and even after James was discharged, they were inseparable.
James proposed in December and last week they were married in Boston.
The venue, musicians, photographers and caterers donated their services free of charge after hearing the couple’s story.
Since their wedding was funded by a lot of donations, the couple will be making donations of their own to several charities and organisations, including donating Krista’s dress to the Semper Fi Foundation – a charity that supports people who were injured or became ill due to the 9/11 attacks.
