The Venue Crew Worked a Miracle to Prepare the Venue Post-Hurricane

It wasn't until 11 p.m. the night before that electricity was restored at the venue after the hurricane. And on the day of the wedding itself, not a single guest was any wiser to what had been going on the night before. The venue was cleaned up beautifully, and the wedding party and happy couple held an intimate ceremony in front of a stunning wooden arch wrapped in fabric that matched the rustic colors in the flowers and the bridesmaids' dresses.
