A New Jersey couple bound together by the Lockerbie terrorist bombing are now husband and wife.
Sonia Stratis and Chris Tedeschis both lost parents in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am flight 103 that killed all 243 passengers on board. The pair met two years ago at a memorial dinner for the grieving families.
"I'm really sad that my father is not here, but I'm not going to let them take away from the fullness of my life," Sonia said.
Family and friends who also lost loved ones joined the happy couple to celebrate a new beginning.
"The extension of the Pan Am families will surround this couple with happiness," Sonia's mother, Mary-Kay Stratis, said.
The bride carried a picture of her father in her bouquet as she walked down the isle.
The wedding was held Aug. 21, one day after the one year anniversary of the release of convicted Lockerbie bomber, Abdel Baset al-Megrahi.
Al-Megrahi was released early from jail on compassionate grounds because of his health.
The couple says their wedding allows everyone involved to now celebrate a different kind of anniversary.
