1st Responders Use Hurricane Michael Devastation As Wedding Decor


Cori Clark and Bryon Hughes weren't about to let Hurricane Michael destroy they're wedding day they had planned for over a year, not even if it completely destroyed the venue and city they planned it in. 

After 5 years together, the couple had planned to marry Oct. 21st in Mexico Beach where Hughes is a firefighter. Clark and Hughes are both first responders, so when Hurricane Michael hit, they jumped into action to help and save lives and didn't have time to consider their impending nuptials and how it may affect that. 

They found out their venue and most of Mexico City had been destroyed by the Hurricane, but they vowed to get married anyway. Cori said she was planning on postponing the wedding but her hubby said "Hurricane Michael has already taken so much from us, we shouldn’t let it take it away from us,’ so we decided to do it,” she said.

They had access to the devastated areas with their 1st responder badges so they said their vows using the Hurricane debris as the back drop. Clark said, “It kind of, at least for me, took me away from the chaos, so it was nice being normal and out of the uniform for a little bit,” she said. “And I felt really pretty.”

That's some amazing positivity to come out of such a tragic time. I love it! Congrats to them! (News-Herald)
