In a recent blog entry about Rachelle and her fiance Chris Chapman, we told you the latest chapter in the journey leading up to their wedding day. We are happy to announce that they were recently married and have returned from a great honeymoon, ready to begin their life together as husband and wife!
The wedding ceremony was perfect! The reception went off just as planned as friends and family of Rachelle and Chris celebrated the event into the afternoon. There was a hidden wrinkle in the reception plans, though!
Very few people knew it, but at the end of the reception, BraunAbility, Toyota and Van Products were about give the couple a surprise wedding gift…a 2011 wheelchair accessible van! They had already enjoyed a van donated by Van Products in the months leading up to the wedding, which really helped out with all of the running around that comes with planning such an big event.
They probably wondered quietly, how they would permanently solve the problem of transportation after the wedding and honeymoon…but before the day was over, all of that uncertainty disappeared as they drove off in their new accessible van! Between Van Products and BraunAbility, the challenges of transportation have been taken care of since February of 2011 and well into the future.
Van Products will work closely with Rachelle in the near future to install the necessary adaptive driving controls and training needed to make the most of her independence as a driver.
And we’ll keep you posted along the way!
