“My family comes in from out of town and this happened. I was scared on the way there,” Ray told Channel 5.

Sarah’s mother took the photo of her daughter and shared it on Facebook. The snapshot has received thousands of shares and more than 10,000 likes so far.

“I love this photo because it shows her character and accentuates her beauty,” her mother told Channel 5.

“I was just making sure my family was okay … I just happened to be in a wedding dress.”
