Cop Gives Bride And Groom Ride To Their Wedding After Crash Wrecks Their Car

Officer Cody Matthews rescued stranded bride and groom Feliece Terwilliger and Joseph DeMichele, as well as their children, five-year-old Gianna and 10-year-old Jayden

That’s just the beginning of the kindness shown to this bride and groom

Bride Felice Terwillger and groom Joseph DeMichele say they wouldn’t change a thing about their wedding day, even though it certainly didn’t go as originally planned.

The Daily News reports Terwillger and DeMichelle were on their way to the Lake Grove, New York Town Hall with their two kids when they were involved in a car crash.

Everyone was fine.

Everyone, but their Jeep Cherokee, which was no longer drivable.

That’s when Suffolk County Police Officer Cody Matthews decided to take this accident call a step further.

He offered to drive the family to the courthouse for the ceremony.

Nice guy?

Guilty as charged!

The couple was so touched they asked Officer Matthews to stay and be their official witness.

He did that and signed their marriage certificate.

What were they thinking back at police headquarters? Sounds like this is just the kind of extra service this department likes to encourage in their officers.

The official statement says, “The Suffolk County Police Department commends Officer Matthews on a job well done. We also wish to extend our heartfelt congratulations to Feliece & Joseph, as well as Gianna and Jayden.”
