The wedding was also the first time that the groom, Tony,  met the man who saved his new wife’s life, indeed he was very grateful.

“It was really an honor to meet him. He’s such a generous man and it was great to get a chance to talk with him and get to know him better. Without him and the Be The Match foundation, there’s a really good chance I wouldn’t have Greta as my wife today.” – Tony
