Couple ties the knot at the hospital where their daughter was in the NICU

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Leila Fadel. Grier Stanley Barnwell was 28 weeks pregnant when she gave birth to her daughter Drue. Drue spent a hundred days in the neonatal intensive care unit with her parents at her side, parents who delayed their wedding twice while waiting for Drue to leave the NICU. After a nurse joked that Grier and her fiance, Jason Barnwell, should just get married there, they did indeed tie the knot next to Drue and her nurses. This is MORNING EDITION.
