Kent Stephenson was sure he'd never be able to move like this again.
Left paralyzed after a motocross accident in 2009, the Texas man thought he'd never be able to walk. But on the day he married his soul mate Misti Richeson, he was able to do much more than that.

Because of an experimental procedure that put an electrical implant in his spine in 2011, Stephenson was able to dance with the love of his life on his wedding day.
To prepare for the moment, he practiced standing for long periods of time, which made him tired. But that certainly didn't stop him from being on his feet on his big day.
"While standing at the altar, I got a flashback to when I was in the hospital first learning that I was never going to be able to stand again and all the things I wasn't able to do anymore," Stephenson said. "But I conquered those obstacles."
And it looks like it was well worth it!
