Tom­my Hil­figer Mod­el Who Was Born With­out An Arm Wears Cus­tomized Gold­en Hand On Her Wed­ding Day (Pho­tos)

When Rebekah Marine mar­ried Jared Paster on April 7, the pic­tures show she was glow­ing, and her right arm was shin­ing.

The 31-year-old fash­ion mod­el was born with­out a right fore­arm. She has had a suc­cess­ful career work­ing for Nord­strom and Tom­my Hil­figer.
Typ­i­cal­ly, Marine uses a black pros­thet­ic arm but had the gold one cus­tomized for the big day to add some bling to her wed­ding out­fit and to make a state­ment about who she is.
“It rep­re­sents the growth I’ve had over the past decade,” Marine told Inside Edi­tion. “To show there is anoth­er side of life, and you can be hap­py with the cards you were giv­en.” 
Orig­i­nal­ly, Marine, of Dept­ford, New Jer­sey, thought the arm should be white like her dress, but then she changed her mind.
“I real­ized you might lose it with the white of my wed­ding dress,” she said, accord­ing to Fox News. “A friend sug­gest­ed gold, and that tied in to my white wed­ding col­ors.
The biggest chal­lenge hand­ed to her was find­ing the right shade of gold, because “I didn’t want to look like C3PO,” she said.
Anoth­er chal­lenge came when she walked down the aisle.
“I had my left arm in my dad’s right arm and was left with my pros­thet­ic arm to hold the bou­quet,” she said, accord­ing to Fox News. “The entire time I was walk­ing I was fear­ing I was going to drop it or not be able to hold it, but it all worked out.”
Marine said her wed­ding day “end­ed up being the best day ever.”
“It was per­fect,” she said. “Grow­ing up I feared mar­riage because I feared every­one look­ing at me, so it’s awe­some to see how far I’ve come.”
The bride and groom hon­ey­mooned in Mex­i­co, and Marine brought along her gold pros­thet­ic. 
“It was cool to see peo­ple star­ing at it in awe. The gold arm makes me more approach­able. It draws a lot more atten­tion, and the whole point of wear­ing it is to draw atten­tion to it.”
