MINDEN – A small Louisiana town that has teamed up to hold a wedding for a couple whose plans to get married in Houston were ruined by Hurricane Harvey.

The Press-Herald reports that Erin Smith and Jason Doyle of Shreveport, Louisiana, were married on Saturday in Minden, about 274 miles northeast of Houston.

Smith says the Houston hotel she planned to stay at is home to evacuees. The hotel offered to remove hurricane victims from their reserved rooms, but Smith said she couldn’t do that.

When Smith called a Minden bridal shop to replace the dress that was already there in Houston, the owner requested a ceremony.

Smith bought the dress, but Hers Bridal’s Alicia Adams got Minden companies to donate everything else, from makeup to catering.
