An American couple's dream of a wedding on the beautiful Isle of Skye nearly went horribly wrong.
These days, lots of couples choose to wed in far-flung destinations. This was the case for Amanda and Paul Riesel who decided to marry on the Isle of Skye — a picturesque island off the coast of northwest Scotland — instead of their home town of Orlando, Florida.
The only hiccup was that their original flight heading to the UK was diverted to Philadelphia. This led to further complications when their subsequent flights to London, and then Inverness, were delayed. With all these issues, the Riesels spent three days stuck in airports and their luggage inevitably went missing.
Thankfully they had packed their wedding rings and flowers in their hand luggage, but the rest of their wedding items didn’t arrive in Skye. The couple arrived on the remote island at 11 p.m. the night before the wedding, so there was little they could do to save their wedding. Amanda wanted to give up and return home, even though their wedding plans had been two years in the making.
