Amy Workman had no idea her husband and friends had been planning her a surprise wedding for months.

Wednesday, they picked her up and took her to Whitestone Inn in Kingston where she found the chapel decorated with flowers.   Her friends had a white gown and jewelry waiting.

"Just been pampered since I got here," said Workman, 41 of Kingston, as her friend put the finishing touches on her hair and makeup.

This isn't the first time she had nervously waited to marry the love of her life. In fact, Wednesday marked the 20th wedding anniversary.

She married the same guy, but this time it's different.

Amy is in the final stages of bone cancer. She recently stopped treatment and now it's a matter of managing the pain. She was in the hospital for a week just days before the ceremony.

"I wanted to relive the best day of my life. Twenty years is pretty special and I wanted something to surprise Amy," her husband, Tony Workman, said. "Since we found out about her sickness, I've cherished everyday."

"He is my best friend, my soul mate. For better or worse. He's really shown that over the past couple of years, in sickness and in health," Amy said.

A crowd of friends and family packed the chapel to watch the couple renew their vows.

"They are wonderful people, they will do anything for any body," said Karen Wilson, Amy's best friend who helped organize the event.

Their teenage son and daughter stood by their sides.

They don't know how many more anniversaries they will share, so made sure to capture every moment of the day.

The couple celebrated with their friends at a reception at the Kingston Community Center.
