GREENVILLE, SC (WIS) - One Greenville County, SC deputy saved the day and helped one bride remain flawless on her wedding day.

In a post on the sheriff's office Facebook page, a thankful Kelly Bushey Walker said her and her bridal party were panicked after their limousine broke down 30 minutes away from her big day.

That's when Deputy Taylor East arrived at the scene, Walker says.

The entire post reads:

He got her to the church on time :)...

The wedding photographer, Ina McConnell, said the deputy got there just in time.

"The Greenville deputy came to the rescue and brought her up ready to go down the isle, and unexpectedly began raining, pouring buckets," McConnell said. "While this gorgeous couple cited their vows to one another, the sun came out and we managed to capture some beautiful photos on top of this majestic mountain at the Glassy Chapel."

McConnell says the limo breakdown wasn't the only mishap, either.

"To add to this crazy beautiful day, right before their 'I do's' the groom's ring got lost and right about as they were saying their vows Alexandra Barham of upstateido.com thought quickly and borrowed the bride's grandfather's ring and the bride placed it on her groom's hand," McConnell recalls. "Once the ceremony was done the ring was found right while I was snapping a few photos of this stunning couple. Later on, Kelly and Fuller said their grandfather's ring had been down three generations of weddings in their family and it was quite sentimental to them that it worked out that way."

McConnell said the entire wedding was "such a beautiful story."

Congrats to the happy couple!
