Couple weds in last-minute Outer Banks ceremony before mandatory Hurricane Dorian evacuation

KITTY HAWK, N.C. - Sometimes you just have to make the best out of a bad situation.

Lyndsey Fuhrman and Allen Sanders of Hanover, Pennsylvania, were supposed to get married this Friday, but they refused to let the approaching Hurricane Dorian put a damper on the happiest day of their lives.

Instead, Nordstrom Events held a beautiful beach wedding for the couple in Kitty Hawk Tuesday morning, followed by a country club luncheon - all before the mandatory evacuation for the Outer Banks began.

The bride and groom were great sports about it all, with Sanders posing for their wedding photo with a sign reading:

Outer Banks Hurricane Evacuation Plan

  1. Grab beer
  2. Run like hell

Nordstrom Events assisted the happy couple with the planning - and last-minute rescheduling - of their nuptials right before they headed home later Tuesday. Deborah Sawyer Photography photographed the two on their special day.
