Speaking to News Channel 5, Ray said: “Anyone in the EMS field would’ve done the same thing. I don’t know if what I did was special but I was in a wedding dress.”

Referring to the picture, she said: “I know the look that I’m giving my mom was the ‘Really mom? Right now you’re taking a picture?’ I’m sure we were a sight on the side of the road for people driving by.”

Ray and her new husband Paul then carried on to celebrate their big day.

Sarah later wrote on Facebook: “I just wanted to say thank you to everybody on here for all your kind comments. My husband and I were both there, even though I was the only one pictured. I really don’t think we did anything out of the ordinary.

"I would like to believe just about anybody in the medical field would have done the same, especially for family… dressed up or not. I’m just very thankful everyone was OK. We are proud of our job and proud to be part of Montgomery County EMS.”

What a woman!
