FDNY Chaplain Saved The Day After A Tragedy Made A Bride Miss Her Wedding

FDNY Chaplain Saved The Day After A Tragedy Made A Bride Miss Her Wedding

Your wedding day is supposed to be the best day of your life, yet even after months of planning, something always seems to go wrong.

While Nesh Pillay, the bride-to-be, was getting her hair styled just before her wedding in a salon in New York City, a 330-ton crane collapsed, and crushed the pavement below. “Very quickly, everyone in the salon was a little nervous, a little scared, no one knew what happened. It was terrifying, it was very sad,” Pillay said.

Despite being dressed and ready for her wedding, Pillay had no way of getting to the intimate ceremony in time as the officiant could not wait any longer for her.

Yet when FDNY Chaplain Ann Kansfield saw the shivering bride stranded in the sleet, she knew she had to step in and help by offering her warm firefighting coat and walking the bride to her wedding.

“While the chaplain was walking me over in the freezing cold, the snow, in the slush with heels, while she was walking us over, I said, ‘Wait, a chaplain. You can marry us?’ She was like, ‘Yeah, I can.’ So I said, ‘Would you marry us?'” Pillay said. After walking the bride to the courthouse, Kansfield married the young couple in an impromptu ceremony on the courthouse steps.
