Despite all the flooding and turmoil caused by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, one New York couple made up their minds to not let the tragedy stop their dream wedding.
Latisha and Baron Lattimore’s house in Brooklyn was flooded with water up to their waist just one week before their destination wedding at Orlando’s Waldorf Astoria hotel.
Wedding gown in hand and determined not to let the storm cancel the event, the couple pleaded with airline companies to get them on a flight to Orlando, but all flights were canceled.
The two improvised and chartered a bus to Orlando with all 80 of their wedding guests.
The wedding went off without a hitch Friday night, complete with a fireworks display as the minister said “You may kiss the bride.”
“We are just so very thankful to be here and to be together,” Latisha Lattimore said.
The couple planned to honeymoon in Orlando, but they cut it short to go back to New York and help with cleanup efforts.
