Monica and Trent were originally supposed to get married in June of this year but their venue had to cancel on them due to Covid restrictions. They rescheduled for September and 3 days before the wedding hurricane Sally threw a barge in the middle of where the ceremony was supposed to be. Again their venue had to cancel on them. Trent reached out to Live Oak Plantation in Pensacola and asked if he brought a crew to clean, could they have their wedding there?
Amazingly Live Oak Plantation had power and agreed. They took chain saws, rakes, and as many people as they could gather and got everything ready. We traveled from Huntsville from a wedding we had on Saturday into Pensacola. I don’t think we could have made it there the day before because of all the trees that had been cleared from the roads. Power lines were still down everywhere and power crews still working diligently. It was amazing that Live Oak had power.
Speaking of power, when the girls were getting ready it went out right before Monica was to put on her dress. There was a line cut but it only took about 45 minutes for them to get it back up and running. We continued in the dark and all went well. It rained all morning and right before the first look it let up allowing them to have their outdoor wedding as planned. Everyone at Live Oak Plantation did an amazing job to make everything perfect. Monica and Trent we love you guys!
