A Tornado Ripped Their Wedding Venue To Shreds, But Couple Still Gets Married.

Chase and Vanessa Harrell were married less than 24 hours after a tornado ripped through their wedding venue. The beautiful old barn in Celina, TX was the perfect spot for their rustic country wedding, but as any Texan will tell you, springtime is full of surprises.


Lyle Wise, Celina native and owner of the Venue at Waterstone watched the EF-0 tornado spring up over a nearby lake and head straight for his barn, “That’s when we watched it just go through the barn and start peeling stuff off. Lifting it a thousand feet in the air I guess. It was just gigantic.”

Teams of people showed up Friday and worked through the night to ensure Chase and Vanessa’s day would be as perfect as they imagined. Thankfully, the lovely couple wed as planned on Saturday afternoon!
