Sophia Chiappalone, 5, had one request before her third risky, open-heart surgery for a heart defect: She wanted to marry her preschool sweetheart and best friend.

Sophia's mother, Kristy Somerset-Chiappalone, contacted Tracy Laferriere, mother of "groom" Hunter Laferriere, and asked if she thought Hunter would agree to Sophia's request.

"At preschool graduation in May he insisted we buy her a dozen red roses — they had to be red, her favorite color," Tracy said. "So, I knew he’d agree to dress up and have a mock wedding shoot for her; and he did."

"Anything to make Sophia happy, Mommy," Hunter told his mom.
