Published: May 24, 2016

A quick cell phone video captures a beautiful moment for soon-to-be Mrs. Nikki Morton.

It's almost here! 5 more days!  Here's my beautiful size-10 dress I finally fit into!"

Morton smiles and spins in her gown during one of her final dress fittings before her April wedding.  There was a time when a moment in that dressing room was only a fairy tale to Morton.  For years she struggled with her weight, at her heaviest, weighing 326 pounds.

Morton underwent gastric bypass with Dr. Gary Anthone at Methodist Hospital in November of 2014 with her children and fiance in full support of her decision.

KETV's Brandi Petersen shared Nicole's weight loss journey and Dr. Anthone speaks to her success.
