Mitchell County- Lorie Powell's family is getting ready for a life changing event. Amidst their plans, an unwanted visitor devastated their lives for the second time.

Lorie's Mother, Marsha, says, "We couldn't believe another tornado came to our county. It was so devastating."

Marsha says it seemed like dejavu. Despite this tumultuous tornado, Lori Powell plans to walk down the aisle couldn't be put on hold. Lori adds, "We have been planning this wedding for a while."

Now, the bride dressed in white satin, and the groom garbed in a tux, are ready to start a scrapbook of recovery. Groom, Chris Nurmi says, "We love each other so much. We had to be together."

The Powell's say this wedding is their bridge over troubled waters. Now, this family will see the sun shine again, not just in the sky, also in Lorie and Chris's eyes.

Lori and Chris Nurmi will live in Atlanta, Georgia.
