Thinking About Tennessee

May 7, 2010

Our hearts go out to those affected by the recent flooding in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Kentucky; we are keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.

In Nashville, some of the city’s most treasured landmarks have been damaged, including the Grand Ole Opry House and Gaylord Opryland Hotel.  In disasters such as this, the damage that is caused – to people’s homes, businesses, and lives – is always difficult to cope with.  We commend all those who are involved in rescue and relief.  Our sincerest thoughts are with those who have perished, and we are so thankful for the humanity and hard work of rescue workers that have saved hundreds more.

Of course, we can’t help but also think of the brides and grooms who had planned to walk down the aisle in any number of Nashville’s beautiful venues this weekend.  Having often spent time in Nashville, we have visited many of the hotels and wedding venues this wonderful city has to offer and can attest to their beauty and charm.  We sincerely hope that these landmarks will soon be restored!

In the past couple of days the floods seem to have subsided, and we hope this is the end of this disaster.   We are sending thoughts of courage and hope from Chicago to all involved, and will keep you all in our hearts and thoughts!
