Woman with serious illness marries inside Covenant hospital

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - It was not the typical Saturday afternoon marriage most couples experience. What made Joe and Elizabeth Avela's wedding different was the fact it was hosted inside a hospital.

Elizabeth suffers from a severe infection that limits her mobility and has increased health problems for her. The couple, which has known each other for more than 13 years, vowed to get married as soon as possible when they found out about Elizabeth's illness.

So everyone at Covenant Health helped make Saturday's wedding possible and give the bride and groom a very special day.
