“I knew about this surprise but nothing prepares you for the beauty of this moment,” the couple’s wedding photographer, Amber Lanphier of Love Adventured, explained in a now-viral Facebook post. “I met a man named Jacob Kilby yesterday who is alive because of a heart transplant received from this bride’s son, Triston. Her son couldn’t be here for the wedding day but Becky’s groom Kelly surprised her by flying Jacob up to Alaska to stand in as a groomsman, carrying Triston’s heart.”
