Bride-To-Be Hitchhikes Her Way to Venue After Flat Tire

Despite the small hiccup, Angelique Arsenault says the rest of her wedding was "amazing"

After waiting 11 years to marry her groom, a flat tire was not going to stop a determined New Hampshire bride from walking down the aisle on her special day. 

With her limo rendered inoperable along an infrequently-traveled Brookline road, Angelique Arsenault stuck out her thumb and hitchhiked to the wedding venue in nearby Milford this past Saturday. 

Arsenault says her bridal party just laughed after receiving word of the flat tire from their driver. 

With confidence fueled by champagne, Arsenault in her white dress was able to flag down a passing motorist who gladly helped get her to the altar - albeit 30 minutes late. 

Despite the small hiccup, Arsenault says the rest of her wedding was "amazing" and she now has a story her family will remember forever.
