Within two hours the couple had planned a wedding. Getting their family to help with flowers and a photographer they had everything including wedding bands for the what Harrison calls their ‘picture perfect 2-hour planned wedding’. At 2pm the couple had officially tied the knot and by 6:45pm Harrison was flying to Afghanistan.
