Bride ditches own wedding to help family involved in car crash [PHOTOS]

A bride's quick decision has earned her the title of a hero after she left her wedding to save her family involved in a car crash.

29-yr-old Sarah Ray, a paramedic from Clarksville, Tennessee rushed to the site of the accident one hour after her October 3 wedding to ensure none of her loved ones were injured or hurt in the crash.

Ray's father and grandparents were involved in the accident.

The bride's grandmother had to be hospitalised and her father sustained minor injuries but it looked like everyone was going to be fine in the end.

"There are a lot of people that are using the word "hero,"" Ray told ABC News.

"I don’t think what we did was heroic. It's just anything that any first-responder would have done."

"We had stopped at accidents before and in regular clothes. It just so happened that this time, I was in a wedding dress," she added.

Ray's father and grandparents were driving to the newlyweds wedding reception when the crash occurred. A car had run a red light and crashed into her family's vehicle.

Photos of the bride rushing to the crash site in her wedding dress were taken by her mother.

"I think the photo is great"

"It definitely makes for a memorable wedding. I hate that the actual accident had to happen, but everyone is going to be OK, so we can kind of laugh about it [the photo] now," said Ray who married a paramedic, Paul.

The couple made their way to the reception after making sure everyone was alright.
