JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --  Thanks to everyone volunteering to help throw Tyler Southern and Ashley Statti the most beautiful wedding ever.  Tyler, a marine from Jacksonville, is a triple amputee hurt in Afghanistan.

Karen Richmond from Divine Floral Design was so touched by the story on First Coast News that she turned to her husband and said, "What can I do?"

Her church has been talking about the "call to duty" and she decided donating floral services to Operation Thumbs Up would be just right. "God just led me," she said.

She called another floral design center in town, Blossoms and Accents, and together they are creating the bouquets, table arrangements, corsages and anything blooming for the wedding.

Ashley has chosen bright pink, black and white for the wedding.  Her favorite flower, a stargazer lilly, will be the focus of the arrangements.

So a huge thanks to Blossoms and Accents and also Divine Floral Design for helping us say "thank you" to a wounded veteran.
