GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A new bride shared some kind words about a Greenville County deputy who came to her rescue on her wedding day.

Kelly Bushey recounted the ordeal on the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page:

"It is hard to put into words the feelings you have on your wedding day. You feel joy, appreciation, nervousness and unconditional love for everyone around you. The one feeling I never thought I would experience on my wedding day was worry. But, after ten minutes of my bridal party being in a hot and steamy limo with sweat beading down our faces, I began to worry. My worry then turned into fear when our limo broke down on the side of the road 30 minutes away from the chapel. Luckily, my bridal party took action and flagged down one of our guest buses and a local Greenville Sheriff. Fearing that I would have to get on the bus with several of our wedding guests and possibly be late to the ceremony, Deputy East came to my rescue. His service to me, my new husband, and my family that day will always be something that I will hold dear in my heart. Not, only did he get me to the church on time, but he made my first ride in a sheriff's car very enjoyable! He put my wedding jitters at ease and made my sister and I laugh on several occasions. By the time we arrived to the chapel I had to giggle at the thought of how my escort may look to my guests. Not many brides can say they arrived to their wedding in a sheriff's car, but I feel honored that the Greenville Sheriff''s Department took time out of their day to make sure my wedding could go on as planned and on time. I will forever be thankful for your service!"

Wedding photographer Ina McConnell snapped some photos of Bushey’s arrival in the back of a patrol car.

McConnell said the bride and groom are currently enjoying their honeymoon.
