- Wedding: November 1999
My wedding is going to be held at a family member’s home, and was supposed to be in their backyard. Their backyard is beautiful and right on the sound (at the beach). However, the yard flooded during the hurricane and the water has not begun to go down yet (it’s been 3 days). The plants and flowers were also destroyed.
The home owner seems pretty convinced that the yard is not going to be salvageable by my wedding date. She’s been through lots of hurricanes in this home so I guess she knows how long the yard takes to dry out, etc. I guess it would have to not rain a drop between now and October 1st for the yard to be dry enough for chairs.
They have a pretty large deck in the backyard as well, but a vast majority of the space is taken up by their pool. The plan now is to move the wedding around the pool. I am so heartbroken. There is really no way to set up the chairs in an organized manner, and it is going to be so much more casual than I had planned and hoped for :(. All I can picture is chairs placed wheverever someone can find a spot, guests standing, etc. Not to mention the fact that the giant pool is going to be in all of my photos and guests’ views.
I’m just sad and needed to vent a bit :(.
