Couple determined to have beach wedding in spite of Matthew

COCOA BEACH, Fla. (AP) " Hurricane Matthew has forced evacuations, the cancellation of vacations, and left hundreds of thousands in the dark. But the storm won't stop one Florida couple's dream beach wedding.

Jaime Gurnavage and Ryan Gordon tell Florida Today ( ) that they chose their Saturday beach wedding for a reason. Gurnavage explains that "everything is engraved with the 8th of October." She says they "picked the 8th because the No. 8, when you set it on the side, it's the infinity symbol."

The couple lives in nearby Suntree. Gurnavage says they still plan on having "some type of ceremony, whatever kind of ceremony that will be."

The wedding was set to be held at the Ocean Landing Resort in Cocoa Beach.

Because Matthew spared south Florida, the couple should have smooth sailing for their honeymoon. They'll be vacationing in Key West.
