BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Jacqueline Sweeney and her husband tied the knot in Riviera Maya this past April.

Originally, her brother Gabe Johnston was going to be there for the destination wedding, too, but due to medical reasons, Sweeney says it was safest for him to stay home.

But despite Gabe not being able to be there for the big day, he and his sister were still able to share a special moment months later. Hear their story in the videos above and below.
