Couple Receives Wedding of Their Dreams on Anderson Cooper
It’s time to break out the tissue boxes again because we’re sure this one will leave you a little teary eyed. Most brides dread a little rain on their wedding day but for Shea and Matt, a little rain was the least of their wedding-day drama.
Shea and Matt had planned their perfect beach wedding on the beach in Asbury Park, New Jersey; only to have their dream come crashing down around them when Hurricane Irene hit the city in August 2011 and forced them to cancel their entire ceremony! On what should have been the happiest day of both their lives, the couple had to scramble to find a place to host their out of town guests. They managed to hold a rushed, impromptu ceremony at their rehersal dinner and were forced to cut 200 people from their guest list. Can you imagine how devastated the couple must have been? When the couple was invited on the Anderson daytime talk show, they thought there were speaking on the importance of wedding insurance. What they received instead was a second chance at the dream wedding they never had.
One of the Sandals All-Inclusive Resort in the Caribbean will be giving the couple a renewal of vows ceremony and reception, a 6-day/5-night luxury included® stay in a Love Nest Luxury Suite and round-trip airfare ! As an added surprise steel drum musician, Mustafa Alexander, promised to play at their wedding at no cost. They also received a complete re-do reception back at home where all 200 of their guests will be in attendance. As for the couple’s reaction to hearing all the wonderful things they’ll be receiving well…we’ll let you see for yourself!
Congratulations Matt and Shea, we’re sure you’ll have a wonderful time at whichever Sandals location you choose!
