This was a wedding that was kept together by the sheer will of the family and the love of the couple. A few short days after a major hurricane, this DIY wedding was put to the test. Power in the venue going out, causing everything to run on a generator was just one of the mishaps that tried to test the bride. A diffuser full of essential oils somehow found its way onto the groom's jacket leaving an oil mark that only Dawn dish soap and a hairdryer could tackle...And that was just the day of the wedding. Leading up to it, the bride and groom faced obstacles that included a strange seamstress and another hurricane.

But they were nothing but smiles as they walked down the aisle. Most people would have cried, but she kept on going! I was in awe of her strength and honored to capture her beautiful day!
