A bride who nearly missed her own nuptials because of a traffic jam was saved by a team of firefighters who escorted to her wedding venue in their fire truck.
Back in March, Los Angeles County firefighters from Station 69 were at the scene of a car accident that blocked both lanes of Topanga Canyon Boulevard when they met the future Mrs. Gorman.
Julie and her bridesmaids were walking on the side of the road, holding up their dresses so they wouldn’t get muddy when the firefighters asked if they could help.

They explained that their limousine was stuck in traffic, and they were late for Julie’s wedding to her now-husband Geof Gorman.
The bride and the bridesmaids were invited onto the fire truck and given a Code 3 escort the wedding venue.
A few weeks after the ceremony, Julie sent the firefighters a photo of herself posing with them in front of their truck on her wedding day.
‘Thanks for saving our wedding, The Gormans,’ she signed the photo, which was dated March 2, 2019.
