Boston Bombing Survivor James Costello Weds His Nurse In The Most Beautiful Of Happy Endings
A truly happy ending.
The survivors of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombings, the massacre that killed 3 and injured over 250, prove time and time again that what they've been through won't stop them from living the fullest life, and 30-year-old James Costello is no different.
Last Saturday, he wed Krista D'Agostino in Boston, Mass, who is not only the love of his life, but his former nurse. According to the Boston Globe, D"Agostino, one of the nurses at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, tended to Costello during his rehabilitation treatment there after the bombings.www.prudentephoto.com
The wedding took place the the Hyatt Regency Boston where 150 family and friends gathered to see the couple celebrate their nuptials -- which came after only six months after their engagement while on a trip to France in December.
TODAY reports that the Hyatt Boston, wedding planner Rachael Gross as well as the photography, video and cocktails crew all donated their services to Costello and his bride.
Although he had to live through the horrifying experience, and underwent multiple surgeries for shrapnel and burns, he doesn't regret what happened to him one bit. If anything, he's thankful.
"One thing that she hates that I always say is I"m actually glad I got blown up," Costello told TODAY. "I wish everyone else didn"t have to, but I don"t think I would have ever met her if I didn"t, so I"m pretty happy."www.prudentephoto.com
Costello appeared in one of the most heartbreaking photos from the bombing, but now, he's featured in pictures that mean so much more.
"It was the most rewarding event I"ve ever been a part of," Gross told ABC News.
