He Kept Both Promises and Marrying Her was one!!


The couple who survived that deadly Charlottesville, VA attack last August by white supremacist were married this past weekend in Gordonsville, Virginia.

Marcus Martin, who was pictured mid-air in a powerful photo taken when the Dodge Challenger struck on August 12, married his fiancée Marissa Blair in Gordonsville, Virginia, during an outdoor ceremony paid for by well-wishers.

Martin, 26, pushed Blair, 27, his then fiance out of the way when the car struck. He suffered a broken leg while the couple’s friend, 32-year-old paralegal and fellow anti-fascist protester Heather Heyer, was killed.

The couple were demonstrating against thousands of white supremacists who had massed in the Virginia town to protest against the decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.

All donations gathered at the wedding (where the happy bride and groom are pictured dancing) will be donated to the Heather Heyer Foundation.
