Matt & Lisa had booked me to cover their wedding back in November last year. The weekend they were due to fly down here, Hurricane Sandy devastated their New York community.
Their home and business destroyed and their friends desperate for help, all thoughts of their wedding were gone as they selflessly dedicated themselves to doing everything they could to help others and rebuild their neighbouhood.
Once their world had been restored to at least some normality, they contacted all those involved in their wedding to see if any of us were available. Maybe because we are no strangers to the devastation hurricanes can bring, but every vendor previously involved honoured their agreements without hesitation, and Matt and Lisa were back on track to marry at the awesome Compass Point resort.
And so, under perfect skies, with family and friends around them, they finally got to say their “I Do’s” in Paradise.
Well done guys – you’re an inspiration to all who meet you.
