Couple Who Postponed Wedding After Harvey Astonished to Find Bride's Wedding Dress Unscathed
They were supposed to be married on Sept. 10, but decided to reschedule after Harvey hit.
A Texas firefighter returned to his ruined home for the first time since Hurricane Harvey struck days before his scheduled wedding, but he found a miracle among the devastation.
Kyle Parry thought everything for the ceremony was a total loss until he opened the closet door and discovered his fiancé's wedding dress.
The gorgeous white lace gown was just inches from the floodwaters and was not damaged.
Parry and his bride-to-be, Stephanie Hoekstra, spoke to Inside Edition about the discovery.
"All of it was overwhelming, but I was happy it was saved," she said.
He had just finished working round-the-clock shifts rescuing Hurricane Harvey victims when he made the miraculous discovery.
"Finding my dress was really nice but at the same time it was hard to even think about that because there was so much going on in the community,” Hoekstra said.
The couple's wedding did have to be postponed, but the dress has now become a symbol of how life will go on after the storm.
"That gave all us a lot of hope and not just Steph and I, but it seems to have given a lot of other people hope,” he said.
