PITTSBURGH —

A bride, who doctors said would never walk again, took a trip down the aisle Saturday.

Alissa Boyle walked down the aisle then danced the night away at her reception.

Boyle was paralyzed last year when she and a fellow nursing student stopped to help a crash victim on Interstate 79.

The two women jumped off an overpass to avoid a semi-truck that was barreling toward them.

Doctors told Alissa she would never walk again, but she proved them wrong.

"It hasn't been easy.  But I just take it a day at a time and I'm here,” Boyle said. “I've met every goal that I've had since the accident and this is my last one and I did it, so it's been really good."

The nonprofit organization Jamie’s Dream Team helped  Boyle and her husband plan their wedding. The couple will honeymoon in Hawaii.
