Even as the storm approached, Mike and Heather Coughlin decided their wedding would go on.

"It was a little hairy, but we realized what was most important and that was all of our friends and family in one place," she told Inside Edition while on the way to their honeymoon in Greece. 

And they were not the only couple to get hitched over the weekend as the storm neared.

Garret and Carly Parsley exchanged vows on the beach in Gulf Shores, Ala., as 30-mile-per-hour winds whirled.

“We planned this wedding almost a year-and-a-half ago. We were going to stick with the date no matter what,” he told Inside Edition.

“It was very windy,” she added. “The waves were huge rolling in. No rain though. The whole time we were out there for the ceremony, there was no rain.”

The couple actually moved up the time of the ceremony to beat the rain.

“Honestly with the storm and everything, I didn't have time to be concerned with the storm or anything like that. I was so focused on watching the weather and checking the hour-by-hour,” she added.

In Mobile, Ala., a group of bridesmaids refused to let Mother Nature stop the party Saturday during the nuptials of Scott and Kathryn Byrd.

Instead, they hiked up their dresses and partied on the flooded dance floor, including the bride.
