Congratulations to Jeremy and Justice Stamper!
What happens though if you cannot remember your wedding day? No manner of photographs, personalized candy wrappers, or commemorative coffee mugs can bring back a memory. That is what happened to a newly wed bride in Tennessee. Less than three weeks after Jeremy and Justice Stamper said their “I do’s,” Justice was in a serious car accident. She suffered severe injuries including amnesia unable to recall memories as far back as five weeks prior to the wedding. Going through her wedding photos is mystifying. “It’s like going to a foreign country and not understanding what anyone is saying. It’s very confusing, ” said Justice.
Recalling the moment he learned about the amnesia Jeremy stated that, “She said ‘I don’t want you to be mad . . .but I don’t remember the wedding.’” Jeremy knew he needed to do something for his bride, so he secretly started a GoFundMe account to raise money for a second ceremony to take place on their one-year anniversary. “I was heart broken and instantly said I would do it all again for her,” said Jeremy.
The couple has known each other for half their lives, first meeting in Sunday school when Justice was ten years old. It was not until high school that they began dating. “We kind of just knew we were meant to be together,” said Justice.
The goal was to raise $5,000 in order to plan another wedding at the same venue where the couple was married on August 1, 2014. That goal has been exceeded with the account reaching over $9,500. The page is appropriately titled, The Stamper Wedding Round Two. Staying true to southern hospitality (and proper wedding etiquette), the Stampers have extended a wedding invitation to everyone who is able to contribute.
