In late December, three months after Mallory Weggemann swims at the Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, she will be married in Minneapolis. With the help of a wedding planner, Weggemann worked out every detail, including a walk down the aisle that almost certainly will have everyone holding their breath.
Weggemann, 27, is paralyzed from the waist down. She uses a wheelchair to get around. But on her wedding day, she’s determined to walk, using carbon fiber leg braces under her wedding dress.
