When Jose Mojica and Yessica Pacheco learned their son needed to be delivered six weeks early, they canceled their wedding plans.
For both of them, the health of their child came first.
A group of Kadlec Regional Medical Center employees learned about the couple’s decision to give up on their plans and decided to do something about it.
“I was checking in on (Yessica) and she told me about having to cancel her wedding and I said, ‘Well what do you think if we could still have a wedding for you?’ and she just got so excited,” said Melanie O’Brien, the birth center manager.
A group of nurses arranged to bring food, about 20 guests, a chaplain and flowers so the couple could be married at Kadlec’s chapel Sunday afternoon.
The couple met about a year ago at the Boost Mobile store in Hermiston where Yessica works.
It took a while for them to start dating, but he finally convinced her, she said with a smile.
