Louisiana couple sneaks in wedding before Hurricane Delta hits



They do… not wanna get wet.

A Louisiana couple scrambled to get their wedding done Thursday hours before Hurricane Delta hit the state, the Associated Press reported.

Ian and Taylor Gaspard were scheduled to get married Saturday in Abbeville, La., about 150 miles west of New Orleans.

But Hurricane Delta rudely did not account for their plans. The storm was expected to make landfall Friday night, and heavy rain had already started falling Thursday.

“It wasn’t supposed to be coming to us, and then all of a sudden it was supposed to be coming, like, right to us,” Taylor told the AP. “So, of course, I got hysterical, and my little Superman here came in and saved the day,”

The Gaspards were expecting 300 people at the Saturday church ceremony, but with the winds of change swirling they settled for a smaller ceremony in front of family and friends Thursday evening.

Taylor told the AP that her now-husband and older sister put the whole plan together in 16 hours.

The weather may have been damp, but the vibes were happy as the couple wed at St. Mary Magdalen Catholic Church, just 15 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico.
