WATCH: Social media video shows Richmond officer’s fiancée walk down aisle at hospital

RICHMOND, Indiana — Richmond officer Seara Burton’s fiancée posted a video on her TikTok page showing an emotion-filled moment for the couple.

Burton has been in critical condition since police said a man shot her during a traffic stop almost two weeks ago.

The couple was supposed to get married last Friday.

In the video, Burton’s fiancée, Sierra Neal, walks down a makeshift aisle, surrounded by medical staff at Miami Valley Hospital showing their support.

She appears teary-eyed as she’s escorted to her fiancée’s bedside in her hospital room.

On the door into the hospital room, a picture of Burton and K-9 Brev can be seen hanging on the wall.

This is not what the couple had planned.

@sbrooke322 This walk was supposed to look a lot different, but I will always be thankful we still got to celebrate. Even if it is not legal on paper, you are my wife ❤️🤍 I love you Seara #searastrong #burtonstrong #wedding ♬ Something in the Orange - Zach Bryan

Neal writes in the caption, “This walk was supposed to look a lot different, but I will always be thankful we still got to celebrate. Even if it is not legal on paper, you are my wife.”

She ended the caption by telling Burton she loves her.

While it may have not been an official marriage ceremony, the symbolism behind it is clear. The love this couple shares is real and strong.

“That love is still in place and her fiancée is by her side continually. So the actual, official marriage, that can be done at a little different time, but the love and support is all still there,” Richmond Police Chief Mike Britt told News Center 7′s John Bedell.

Neal and Burton’s love is a force an entire community can feel.

Chief Britt said Burton is showing little signs that she is still fighting in the hospital, but remains in critical condition.

The video has over 300,000 likes on TikTok.
