(ABC)– No amount of rainfall or flooding in Charleston, South Carolina, could dampen the wedding plans of a Kansas City couple this weekend.

Britney Mysinger and Jason Houdek had organized a Saturday wedding in Charleston, but as this week’s major storm hit, they thought their plans were thwarted, according to ABC affiliate WCIV-TV. Police closed off access to the Charleston peninsula, forcing the officiant, photographers and make-up artists to back out.

Even the groomsmen were stranded on the Isle of Palms, miles from downtown Charleston, WCIV-TV said.

The bride and groom turned to the news station for help.

“If anyone in the area can actually marry us, that would be greatly appreciated,” Mysinger told WCIV-TV.

And after that, the wedding began to fall into place. City Councilman Mike Seekings saw the broadcast, got in touch with the TV station and told the couple he could officiate the wedding. Then college student Hannah Summer heard about the situation and volunteered via Twitter to be their wedding photographer.

Summer even found a member of a local a capella group to DJ the reception, WCIV-TV said. And as for the stranded groomsmen, a military Humvee gave them a ride, according to WCIV-TV.

After a perfect storm of events, Mysinger and Houdek said their “I do’s.”

“With everyone just putting everything together we appreciate it so much, and it feels great to finally call this man my husband,” Mysinger told WCIV-TV.
