KINGSPORT — A hospital room in Holston Valley Medical Center’s Wilcox Hall is an unusual place for a wedding ceremony, but that’s where Lisa Carter and Christopher Trivette were married Thursday, surrounded by family. The couple had been dating for 29 years.

On Friday, Lisa, now Mrs. Trivette, said, “This was an all of a sudden thing. I am a happy woman.”

The ceremony, officiated by Rev. Daniel Winiger, was at the Ballad Health hospital where Christopher is being treated for cirrhosis of the liver. Lisa said the two didn’t want to wait any longer to tie the knot.

Christy Hayden, Christopher’s sister, helped make the wedding arrangements.

“She and I are a team. We’ve always stuck together,” Lisa said.

As for the newly married couple, Lisa said, “We’re taking it one day at a time.”
