The nation woke up to the disquieting image of Marcus Martin, who was airborne in a powerful photo taken when the Dodge Challenger plowed into a crowd of protesters on August 12, 2017.
Martin suffered a fractured leg, but survived to marry his fiancée Marissa Blair in Gordonsville, Virginia, during an outdoor ceremony on Saturday paid for by well-wishers.
The couple had delayed their big day in the aftermath of the Charlottesville debacle and the death of their friend, Heyer.
The group of friends joined other civic minded individuals demonstrating against thousands of white supremacists who had massed in the Virginia town to protest against the decision to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee, last year August.
‘He always said he would do any and everything to protect me and he proved it,’ Blair told NBC29.
‘It proves hate won’t win and it proves that there are more good people in the world than there are bad and that love will win.’
