CUSHING, Maine — They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. How about remnants of a hurricane?
There's one Maine couple getting ready to say "I do" on the Midcoast.
Instead of altering their plans for their outdoor altar, they're embracing the storm.
"Hopefully nobody capsizes and it is what it is," said Louisa Creighton-Smith.
It's not often you'll find a bride concerned about capsizing on her wedding.
Up until this point, everything was squared away. From their oceanfront garden venue in Cushing to their signature drink: a dark and stormy.
"That might have been part of our problem here," she laughed.
"Might have jinxed ourselves," said her fiance, Brigham Prescott.
Louisa Creighton-Smith and her soon to be husband, Brigham Prescott are getting married Saturday, but they caught wind an unexpected guest is trying to crash.
"Mother nature!" said Margaret Creighton.
The mother of the bride refraining from going mama bear on Mother Nature. The remnants of Hurricane Dorian are expected to brush the coast of Maine during the outdoor ceremony and reception.
It's easy for us to be cavalier about it when down in the Bahamas the same storm has issued all sorts of destruction and catastrophe," said Margaret Creighton. "So we're bearing that in mind even though it's a storm we're reminded of how lucky we are."
Instead of letting Dorian derail their big plans, this bride and groom are ordering ponchos for the guests and marching down the aisle as planned, although their march will be powered by motor.
"They're going to take a small flotilla of boats from here across the cove to the garden nearby where the ceremony will take place," she said.
This bride and groom are ready for the bumpy ride, taking what they can't control, in stride.
"I thought it's definitely going to come up and hit exactly when we're supposed to get married," Creighton said with a laugh.
"Yeah we kind of always knew that was a possibility this time of year but we figured we're going to go for it no matter what," said Prescott. "Rainy day, we're still going to have a good time friends and family are all here. No matter what it will be a good day."
Prepared for the good days and bad days and to weather the storm together.
