This is one of the bravest and most beautiful wedding moments I’ve seen in a long time.
Jamie Steinborn and her fiancé John tied the knot on May 12, 2017. Jamie has been battling cervical cancer for 16 months, so the nuptials held a particularly special meaning for the blushing bride.
During the reception, which took place at the Firefly Gardens in Texas, Jamie told her bridesmaids and girlfriends to gather behind her for the Bouquet toss.
Jamie counted down from three as the guests expected to go running for the bouquet — but they were completely surprised when Jamie ripped off her wig at the last second and proudly flung it behind her head!
Watch the video below to see how her incredible “bait-and-switch” was received by her loved ones.
“This was a once in a lifetime opportunity,” she said. “I wanted to show everyone that no matter what life throws at me that everything will be ok. To me a bald head shows courage, the will to fight, the will to not let anything get you down.”
