During the reception, Katie had to take breaks due to the pain which wouldn't allow her to freely stand up for long hours.

"Katie died five days after her wedding day. Watching a woman so ill and weak getting married and with a smile on her face makes us think...Happiness is reachable, no matter how long it last. We should stop making our lives complicated."
