Newlyweds beat Delta to the altar in hurricane-rushed wedding

A Louisiana couple planning to get married Saturday had to push their nuptials up a few days as Hurricane Delta slowly made its way toward the state — then made landfall Friday. 

Ian and Taylor Gaspard, of Abbeville, 80 miles east of Creole, where Delta made landfall, were supposed to exchange vows Saturday in front of 300 guests inside Saint Mary Magdalene Church.

Their plans were scuttled because of Delta. In an effort to beat the storm, they held the ceremony at the church Thursday in front of friends and family.

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

Hurricane Delta sped up one Louisiana couple’s wedding by a few days, but judging by the smiles on the bride and groom, it certainly didn’t dampen the affair.

Ian and Taylor Gaspard from Abbeville were supposed to get married Saturday, Oct. 10, with 300 people to wish them well inside the Saint Mary Magdalen Church, a scenic brick building in the town’s center surrounded by green lawn and oak trees.

But Hurricane Delta had other plans.

Delta speeds up couple’s nuptials

ABBEVILLE, La. (AP) — Hurricane Delta sped up one Louisiana couple’s wedding by a few days but judging by the smiles on the bride and groom it certainly didn’t dampen the affair.

Ian and Taylor Gaspard from Abbeville were supposed to get married on Saturday, Oct. 10 with 300 people to wish them well inside the Saint Mary Magdalen Church, a scenic brick building in the town’s center surrounded by green lawn and oak trees.

But Hurricane Delta had other plans.

After watching the hurricane slowly make its way toward Louisiana — and after a few of what Taylor describes as bridal hysterics — they swiftly changed gears and held the wedding at the church on Thursday with friends and family in attendance. The skies were grey but the rain held off while the wedding party gathered. The streets outside were largely deserted as residents finished up last-minute storm preparations

Newlyweds beat Delta to the altar in hurricane rushed wedding

ABBEVILLE, Louisiana (KTRK) — Twenty-four hours ahead of Hurricane Delta’s arrival, church bells rang out at 6 p.m. and a bride’s high heels clicked on the church’s front walk as she raced to get to her wedding.

Taylor Choate and Ian Gaspard picked Oct. 10 as their wedding day months ago. In a year when COVID-19 had re-scheduled so many events, they thought they would luck out. Then Hurricane Delta zeroed in on the small town they call home.

“We were supposed to get married Saturday with over 300 people,” Taylor to ABC13’s Ted Oberg outside Abbeville’s Saint Mary Magdalen Church. “We knew about the storm, but we were kind of like, eh, because it wasn’t supposed to be coming to us. Then all of a sudden it was supposed to come like right to us. So of course I got hysterical.”

It was a moment any bride can identify

Delta Goodrem reflects on biggest beauty blunder as a teenager

Delta Goodrem admits she cringes over photos of herself from the early 2000s because of one regrettable beauty trend

Delta Goodrem grew up in the spotlight, having signed her first record deal with Sony at the age of 15, before joining the cast of Neighbours two years later.

But the Born to Try singer, 35, finds herself cringing these days when she looks back on her rise to fame – and it’s all because of one rather outdated beauty trend.

Delta revealed on Channel Seven’s Sunrise on Monday that she would over-pluck her eyebrows in her teens and early twenties because pencil-thin brows were fashionable at the time.
