One of the purest forms of love is the one we develop when we are in our growing years. You meet someone and embark on the journey of understanding each other, growing mature together, and moving ahead with your life and goals together. And the most beautiful thing is when you get to marry the love of your life.

Marrying your college mate is proof of the fact that true love exists. And the cherry on top is when you plan a honeymoon in a serene and beautiful place like the mountains, where the two of you can spend quality time. But what if your most special day turns into the biggest nightmare of your life?

The same is the story of Clay and Acaimie Chastain, who share a forever kind of bond. But soon after their marriage, their whole life will take an unexpected and drastic turn. “You think you have your life planned out and then God has other plans,” said Debra Catron, the bride’s mom.
