They were FINALLY wed in Sept 2016. Shays mother was ordained to officiate, her stepfather of 38 yrs & her biological father were there. The bride & groom sang Faithfully by JOURNEY as their vows and...THAT was the first moment that the family ever heard them sing together. Shay lost both her fathers that following year to cancer, their last wishes, because of that wedding song, was for them to go out & perform.
