No power, no problem.

It will be awhile before anyone in Connecticut forgets the snow storm we had the last weekend of October.  While I'm a snow lover, just love it, I have to admit it was unexpected how much damage this storm caused.  I think most of the state now has power 10 or so days later but not everyone.

I spent the storm snuggled in by the fire, thinking whew no wedding. I didn't think it would cause an issue for my couple the next weekend.  I was WRONG.  The venue was without power, then again most of the town was without power.  While this was greatly upsetting on Monday, and even Tuesday, we thought there was no way it would continue to be an issue.  Of course it was, CL &P was expecting to have power to the town of Glastonbury until the Monday after the wedding.  The hotel didn't even have power but thankfully by Wednesday they did.

We spent a few hours looking for different locations, seeing what we could do. Could we move it, could a place be found that could handle the food requests and could it be done.  Now I'll admit my bride might have been a TINY bit upset but she handle herself like pro. Upset yes, but she kept moving forward. She kept looking while we were looking and never giving up. Okay so her hair trial couldn't be held the day she wanted due to lack of power, she still found a way to make it happen.  It really was one thing after another but at the end the hotel were the guests were staying, did their best to help us out.  They gave us a ballroom, we informed all the guests and well they got married of course.  Thankfully their church was PERFECT, and had no issues. While it might not have been the wedding Maryann & Keith had been planning with us for so long, it was a wedding to remember.  They were surrounded by friends, family and so much love.  We wish Maryann & Keith only happiness and joy for the rest of their lives together.
