(LAKEVILLE) - A northern Indiana man who was cutting a tree to add a decorative element to his wedding had his nuptials postponed when the tree toppled onto him the day before the wedding.

WSBT-TV in South Bend reports that Toby Freehauf was cutting a tree stump to put his wedding cake on for a "rustic country wedding" when the tree fell on him Friday afternoon.

Freehauf used his cell phone to call for help after he was injured in the town of Lakeville about 15 miles south of South Bend. He later underwent back surgery.

Freehauf's wedding had been set for Saturday, but he's expected to remain hospitalized for another two weeks.
