Ian and Larissa Murphy were married on August 28, 2010.
It almost didn't happen.
Ian and Larissa, college sweethearts from Pennsylvania, had been dating for 10 months and had already discussed getting engaged when, in September of 2006, Ian was involved in a car crash that left him with permanent brain damage.
