The winds blew, the rain came and the tent went down!!
And along with the tent, went the hopes and plans of Chris and Helen for their beach wedding on the sandy shore of Manzanita, Oregon. With just hours to the ceremony, their two families banded together to reinvent the wedding at a nearby Methodist church, who’s pastor volunteered to open their doors (and function room!) to the couple.
Decorations were hung, linens were spread and the bar was stocked! And at 6 pm on September 6, Helen came down the aisle to the guests all singinig, “Going To the Chapel and I’m Gonna Get Married!” (Did I mention that the planned music didnt work either??)
In the end, it was one of the most romantic, loving and beautiful weddings I have ever attended and it didnt matter at all that the wedding party’s flipflopped-clad feet weren’t dancing in the sand!
