September 2008 … “Hurricane Hannah is headed directly to the Carolina’s … Hannah is now the fourth hurricane-strength storm of the 2008 Atlantic Hurricane Season …  Hannah popped up just as Hurricane Gustav weakened … Tropical Storm Hannah seemed to be losing steam late yesterday, but is now being projected to gain hurricane strength again before reaching the Carolina’s … on Friday, September 5th.”

what to do … what to do…

Greta & Chaz were all set for their fabulous beach wedding in Wilmington when Hannah derailed their well-thought-out plans!

They had 48 hours to re-design their wedding in a tiny industrial art gallery in Charlotte, NC.
