"It was a miracle, " Karas told TODAY. Because He was filling her with joy despite the fact that outwardly her body was failing. "She just wanted it to be a celebration".

Mosher was in such weakened state they initially considered draping the dress over her, but they were able to get it on her for the wedding in the hospital's chapel. As someone who wanted nothing more than to see my friend truly happy, I felt I had to capture these images, which by this point I knew were her final moments with us.

"The last words she said were her vows", Karas told WFSB.

Mosher said, "She's my great love, and I'm going to lose her, but I'm not losing her forever".

The cancer had already spread to her lymph nodes by the time it was discovered. Christina Karas, her bridesmaid, captured the special moments after Lindsay and David Mosher exchanged "I do's". "She proved them all wrong and that's what that photo says to me", Mosher said.

"That was a really hard day, " Karas said. The wedding photos have since gone viral. "I'm in love and not going to abandon his love", said the maid of honor Christina.
