Upstate couple speaks out after Greenville Co. deputy saves wedding day

Posted: Updated:

Kelly and Fuller Walker have a pretty typical story on how they first met. It all began with a night out on the town.

"Just saw her and absolutely fell over myself,” said Fuller.

Nearly 2 years later, Fuller finally proposed to Kelly during a weekend in the mountains in North Carolina.

"'I'm just ready to marry you. Would you do me the honor of being my wife?' She said no,” explained Fuller. “An unbelievable, 'No!' way you're doing this, no."

Finally, on June 3, 2017, their wedding day rolled around.

What was supposed to be a bride's perfect day, turned into mess a quickly for Kelly, starting with a busted air conditioner in Kelly's limo with her bridesmaids.

"So we were hot and claustrophobic,” said Kelly. “The car started rattling and shaking."

She added they even tried cooling themselves down with ice cubes in the limo.

The driver pulled over and the car overheated. Leaving the soon-to-be Mrs. Walker and her bridal party stranded about a half hour away - a moment Fuller says his groomsman tried hiding from him as they passed by the disabled limo.

"They all started grabbing my head,” said Fuller, “So I wouldn't look out the window. I was like, 'What is going on?' Very discrete."

Luckily for them, Greenville County Sheriff’s Deputy Taylor East pulled over minutes later to rescue Fuller's bride.

"He was so sweet and kind to us,” explained Kelly. “He made us feel so comfortable and made sure all my nerves were at ease."

Kelly and her sister took their first rides in a patrol car that day.

"It was the moment I realized this is my wedding day and it's about who I'm marrying and not about how I'm getting there,” said Kelly.

Fuller caught wind of the fiasco and told photographer, Ina Mcconell to catch Kelly's arrival at the chapel. Kelly said she and her husband had no idea the photos even went viral until they were on their honeymoon in South Africa days later. They had hundreds of messages from people around the country.

They say it's the something blue that made their special day even more memorable.

"Now we have a memory that most people don't," said Kelly.
