Hurricane Matthew cancels couple’s destination wedding

ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

An Anderson Township couple had a wedding planned in Charleston this weekend, but it's now going to have to wait because of Hurricane Matthew.

The two have been planning their destination wedding since 2014. The dream was to get married on a Charleston rooftop Saturday night, until they found out about the hurricane. 

"We've been planning this for over two years, so it's not just been an out of the blue type thing," bride-to-be Julia Woodruff said.

Everything was set for this Saturday at the Harbor Club in Charleston, until this week. Hurricane Matthew was moving in, and the word was it could affect the east coast.

"The wedding would not be happening. It was officially canceled," groom-to-be John Sarra said.

Years of organizing, scheduling, and shopping all disappeared, but John and Julia said this is only a small hiccup in a much bigger picture. 

"You know, at least all of our family and friends are safe, and so we're really blessed for that, and our heart really goes out to all of those people in the Caribbean and in Haiti," Woodruff said.

The couple now has a bit more planning to do, but they have already set a new date.

"It's actually going to be about seven months from now, next May," Sarra said.

"It'll all work out and it'll be fine. Just a few bumps in the road," Woodruff said.

The couple said they're having a party this weekend with their family and friends on the day they were supposed to get married.
