Nick and Crystal were supposed to get married in two weeks on Aug. 21, but Allegheny Health Network said Nick’s mother is in the hospital and sadly not expected to survive.

AHN said the hospital staff were “thrilled” to accommodate the couple’s request and tried to “make the best out of a not-so-great situation.”
