Syrian Refugee Saves Wedding Day With Sewing Skills

A wedding dress rips and a Syrian tailor arrives in the nick of time.

— -- A Canadian woman poised to walk down the aisle had the unthinkable happen: the zipper on her dress broke.

Jo Du's knight in shining armor was a seemingly unlikely one. A Syrian refugee, who had arrived in the country just days earlier and was staying next door to the house the bride had rented in Ontario, also happened to be a tailor.

In a Facebook post, photographer Lindsay Coulter wrote "Every weekend I take photos of people on the happiest days of their lives, and today one man who has seen some of the worst things our world has to offer came to the rescue."

Luckily for Du, the man who would save her wedding dress had been a master tailor in Aleppo for decades.
