“It was dirty blonde, with highlights and a little roots at the top to make it look natural. It was like having an amazing blowout 24/7. It made me feel like myself, like I wasn’t just a person who has cancer.”
After she left Mr. Cartier’s salon, they struck up a text friendship. “He started checking on me all the time and liking all my stuff on Instagram,” she said. “He became my ray of sunshine in the rain.” At a benefit for Wigs & Wishes that Mr. Majzik and Ms. Muszynski attended that fall, they asked him to officiate their wedding.
On June 19, Mr. Cartier, a Universal Life Church minister, married Mr. Majzik and Ms. Muszynski in front of 190 guests at the Barn at Stoneybrooke in Atglen, Pa. That afternoon, Mr. Cartier was Ms. Muszynski’s ray of sunshine in a more literal rain: As her brother escorted her down a grassy aisle to join Mr. Majzik under an arbor adorned with roses, the sky opened and a warm drizzle fell.
Mr. Cartier didn’t ignore it. “Think of this as a baptism,” he said. “Without rain, there is no life.”
Ms. Muszynski, in a lace mermaid wedding gown with buttons down the back, promised to love and honor Mr. Majzik. Mr. Majzik, who donned a royal blue suit, vowed to continue loving Ms. Muszynski, whose cancer is now in remission, in sickness and in health. “May God bless Brittany and Mickey,” Mr. Cartier said after pronouncing them married.
As the couple recessed toward the bucolic barn in the distance, Ms. Muszynski’s wavy blonde wig, set off by a sweeping tulle veil, bounced with the spring in her step.
