HOLLY BEACH, La. (AP) — The fourth time was the charm for a Louisiana couple who finally got married after the coronavirus pandemic and a nasty hurricane season delayed three previous wedding attempts.
The American Press reported that Alex Hebert Hyde, 31, and Michael Hyde, 37, got married March 21 after having to reschedule their wedding repeatedly.
The first date on March 21 of last year had to be cancelled when the stay-at-home order went into effect to control the coronavirus spread. Another date a few months later had to be rescheduled when travel restrictions meant that many of their out-of-state guests couldn't attend. Then two hurricanes that struck southwest Louisiana forced them to delay again.
So on March 21, when they finally tied the knot at a ceremony on Holly Beach in southwest Louisiana, love and relief were intertwined.
“Each time we postponed, the next attempt got simpler and simpler,” the bride told the newspaper. “We eventually decided that’s what we wanted — something really sweet and simple, and something with a lot of meaning... This time, everything was just perfect.”
