(WCIV/CNN) — Even record-setting floods can’t stop love.
A Kansas City couple who planned to wed in Charleston, South Carolina over the weekend was determined not to let a little water dampen their day.
But the wedding almost didn’t happen — that is, until a TV news crew and some locals helped out.
After the report went out over the air, a city councilman stepped in for the couple, whose minister, like so many, could not make it downtown because of the flooding.
A photographer was even found through social media.
While the bridesmaids were already there, the groomsmen, according to the groom’s father, were picked up by a military Humvee and drove them a mile-and-a-half into the city.
And in case you were wondering, yes, they did have a reception, thanks to a donated DJ and food.
