Hello everyone and happy Thursday! We first introduced you to Marty Bruckner and Lauren Saia back in November. The couple lives here on island, was engaged to be married and chose to take their engagement photos amid the destruction following hurricanes Irma and Maria. Those images went viral and brought much-needed attention to our plight here on St. John.
Originally scheduled to be married this past February, Marty and Lauren postponed their wedding, instead focusing their efforts on the island’s relief efforts. Well Marty and Lauren’s dream wedding finally happened this past weekend all thanks to some very generous businesses. Their story was so special that it was featured on Good Morning America yesterday. Please check out their story below:
“A tragic event doesn’t have to be so tragic.” So true.
Congrats Marty and Lauren! We are all so darn happy for you both!!

Great story.. Does anyone else notice that they always mention Puerto Rico and not the U.S. Virgin Islands even when the story is about a U.S. Virgin Island?????
What a strong commitment to both St. John AND to each other!!
Thank you GMA, and again thank you Kenny Chesney!!
Love in, and Love for ‘Love City’ !!
