A Saskatchewan woman’s first wedding anniversary will be a much drier affair than her wedding was.
In the midst of the devastating flooding in the southeast last year, Kelsey Reynolds tied the knot on her farm near Gainsborough on July 5.
“We were pretty fortunate on the farm. We just had water laying around the yard,” said Reynolds. “It was just kind of hard with the community going through what they were going through. Trying to help out in town and trying to plan a wedding was pretty hard.”
It turned out to be a great day for Reynolds. She said the weather was beautiful and everything turned out the way it should have.
Just before Reynolds’ wedding day, inch upon inch of rain fell in southeast Saskatchewan causing dozens of communities to declare a state of emergency.
“We just had tons of rain and flooding. It’s really unbelievable the way it was actually.”
Even though most of the province has been very dry this year, Reynolds said the southeast does not need any rain at the moment.
This Sunday is Reynolds’ one-year wedding anniversary. She does not have any big plans for the day.
“Hopefully we’ll be at the lake. Hopefully no rain. Hopefully it doesn’t turn into what last year was.”
