“As a publicist and event planner, I thought I had everything covered with my weather contingency plans…but nothing could prepare us for the storm that came through.”

“For starters, due to rain, winds, thunder and lightning, we moved the cocktail hour to right before the ceremony. Then my groom and groomsmen could not arrive by boat as planned. Then the power flickered (before the generator kicked in), the chuppah blew over and had to be re-installed, and it rained sideways into the ceremony tent!”

“But then, just as everything was going awry, the weather miraculously cleared up. We were able to have a wonderful sunset ceremony overlooking the Navesink River. Swans even swam by to watch us say I do!”

“As a result of the weather, guests all felt closer to one another–like they had really been through something together. It led to a warm and fun evening that everyone has coined as ‘the most memorable wedding they have ever attended.’”
