    Also present will be the bridesmaid who pushed Friedman into a
    pool at a bridesmaids’ party in May 2010 in Virginia Beach, Va.,
    causing her to be a quadriplegic. Friedman has never identified the
    friend and says that person suffered even more than she did.

    The bride and groom will have a honeymoon in Fiji, then Friedman
    will head to California for therapy in September.
