BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — It was the wedding of the summer. A beautiful day, a light breeze, and a lovely bride, everything was perfect, but wait... where's the groom?
A disabled ferry left a groom and several members of a wedding party stranded until Boston Police Department Harbor Patrol saved the day on Saturday.
BPD Harbor Patrol received an alert of a temporarily disabled ferry at a dock with a groom on board in Boston Harbor, according to the Boston Police Department.
The ferry was supposed to set out for Thompson Island for a wedding ceremony later in the day.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found not only the groom, but several members of the wedding party, the D.J., the photographer, and all of the decorative flowers for the ceremony without a way to get to the wedding. The bride was already on Thompson Island.
The officers transported the stranded wedding party and floral arrangements to the island and made it just in time for the ceremony, reuniting the groom and his waiting bride.
Hours later, BPD Officer Joe Matthews came back to Thompson Island to congratulate the newlyweds before they returned to their reception.
