Love among the ruins of Hurricane Sandy
NEW YORK (WHDH) -- Hurricane Sandy destroyed the church where a New York couple planned to get married. Instead, their wedding was held in the middle of the devastation, turning it into a symbol of strength and resilience.
Amidst the wreckage left by Hurricane Sandy there was something unexpected. A hotel on Staten Island was full of refugees. The Coast Guard and Red Cross slept on one side of the wall, the other side a wedding for 316 people was being set up.
Christine Hassett, her fiancé Matt Bobe and their families lost a lot in the storm. So did every guest that attended the nuptials. Some guests couldn’t attend the wedding because they had no gas.
Watch the video for more on Christine and Matt’s wedding.
