Amber & Spencer came to me back in 2015 & asked if I would be a part of their wedding celebration. Honored as can be, I accepted quickly. We headed to the beach to document their engagement. A year later, we were to head to the beach to document their wedding! About a week before the big day, word of a hurricane started brewing in the news. With Florida’s recent track record, a hurricane didn’t raise any alarm. However, as the days creeped further along, Hurricane Matthew started to cause worry. Amber & Spencer had just changed their venue to Si Como No Inn in Flagler Beach, FL & planned on spending the entire wedding day among friends there. That changed quickly once the storm hit. Flagler Beach suffered a fatal hit. Hurriane Matthew wiped away A1A & destroyed the beach. The bridges were shut down making a Flagler Beach wedding impossible. While our hearts broke for our little beach town, they also soared with love! Spencers parents housed the couple & some wedding guests during the storm. Then opened up their house for a beautiful backyard wedding. Amber & Spencer couldn’t have dealt with the situation better. It was a chaotic wedding day, having to throw out the timeline & plans they’d been working on for a year. It went seamlessly though, considering Flagler county had no power & was out of ice. A hurricane can’t stop love! Thank God Amber & Spencer were surrounded by the best family/friends & team of vendors to give them a memorable wedding day.
