CANTON, Ga. -- A fire that leveled an office complex in Canton early Monday had among its tenants, the River Baptist Church.
For two of its parishioners, the loss was especially devastating. They had planned to be married in the complex courtyard on May 18.
Alex Massey is a full-time student and waits tables to make extra cash. Her fiancé, Chris Benson, works full time at Starbucks and holds down two part time jobs.
Their May wedding was all set, but the fire put everything on hold.
"We were supposed to get married there, and I have no idea what we are going to do," Massey said. "I do have faith that it's going to work out somehow."
Within hours, 11Alive's Bill Liss found a way to get everything worked out for the bride and groom.
"What if I told you that you were going to get married at Chateau Élan?" Liss asked the couple.
"I'd probably cry," Massey said.
