Fourteen months after surviving a deadly car crash, Tracy Morgan has wed his longtime fiancée Megan Wollover. Morgan's road to recovery has been lengthy, and earlier this year, he revealed that he was opting to postpone exchanging vows because he didn't want to walk Wollover down the aisle with a cane. "After almost losing Tracy last year, I am so grateful to finally be married to the love of my life," Wollover said to People after the Sunday evening ceremony. We wish nothing but happiness to the newlyweds! [People]
