A four-year-old cancer patient had always dreamed of marrying her favorite nurse, so the hospital organized a “wedding” for the couple in less than a day.

Abby, who has leukemia, “married” Matt Hickling at the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancers at Albany Medical Center, reports, after one of the nurses posted a video on the news outlet’s Facebook page. The “groom” was wearing a tuxedo t-shirt and scrubs. The other nurses on staff were “bridesmaids,” who carried bouquets of flowers and walked down an aisle covered in rose petals donated by a local florist. Afterwards, there was cake and ring pops for everyone.
