Jeremy and Justice Stamper were married in a beautiful ceremony 19 days before Justice was nearly killed in a terrible car accident.

Last August, this lovely couple got married in Hungry Mother State Park, Virginia. They paid for it all, took pictures, and went on their honeymoon. Then a traumatic car accident erased the bride's memory of the whole event, even the fact that she was married in the first place.
Almost one year later, her husband Jeremy decided she deserved to remember her own wedding. The thing about weddings, though: they're expensive. So he started a GoFundMe page, explaining the situation:
While I was working, my wife was traveling just down the road to her aunt's house and to meet me when I got off work when it happened. She was yielding to oncoming traffic to turn left on a side road when she was rearended at a dead stop at about 50 MPH plus. The exact speed is not known. She was nearly killed in the impact but by the grace of God she survived. The injuries were endless and she has now finially to maximum medical improvement and was released from her physical treatments.
About a month after the accident she finally told me. She said "I don't want you to be mad....but I do not remember the wedding." I was heart broken and instantly said I would do it all again for her. She has memory loss from about 5 weeks before the wedding, which is when we actually started to plan and put the wedding ideal into motion, and up to the accident. She didn't even know we were married. She couldn't believe it. I promised her I would take care of her and now here we are, The Stamper Wedding Round 2.
At this point, the Stamper's have surpassed their $5,000 goal, and seem to be trying to figure out a way to invite the many people who have heard their story and supported them. In an update he wrote:
Now is the time, If you are seriously interested in attending the wedding and reception please, contact me ASAP so we can figure out a list of attendants... I wish we could have everyone at it though!
So, should we all try to go? JK! It's enough to know that these crazy kids have each other, and a second chance to commit to their love in front of family and friends. The only other silver lining to amnesia I can think of is that Justice doesn't remember all the boring table-seating arrangements from the first round. May she create new, better memories in their place.
Best of luck to the beautiful twicelyweds! (via GoFundMe)
