Florida Couple Determined to Have Their Oct. 8 Wedding Despite Hurricane Matthew

No storm is going to stop this couple from tying the knot. Jaime Gurnavage and Ryan Gordon of Suntree, Florida, are still planning to have their Cocoa Beach wedding Oct. 8 at 5 p.m. despite Hurricane Matthew. And yes, it will be right on the beach.

“We’re definitely going to have a beach wedding no matter what,” Gurnavage, 34, told ABC News. “I have been planning this wedding for the past year, down to every last detail, from a whimsical wedding on the shore of Cocoa Beach to the classic beach-chic reception with an amazing Caribbean dinner spread with a magical floating sky lantern send off into the night’s sky overlooking the ocean to finish off the evening.”

The determined bride has been in touch with her wedding coordinator from their venue, Ocean Landings Resort, who told her the resort will most likely reopen for business on Saturday.

“It’s closed Thursday and Friday. But she’s saying it’ll probably plan to open tomorrow,” said Gurnavage. “We expect it [the hurricane] to move past this evening. My fiancé and I expect to head back to Brevard County tonight. My dad said if there’s a lot of debris on the beach he’ll grab a bunch of guys and get a rake and rake out the sand.”

The couple evacuated to Orlando along with their guests who were already in town for the nuptials. But the show must go on.

“We’ve just been hanging out here until they open up Ocean Landing again,” she explained. “I have about 20 or 30 family members that were coming down from Pennsylvania. That’s where we’re from. They had hotel room reservations for Ocean Landing where the wedding is going to be.”
