The Lowell Sun

LOWELL, Mass. -- The very white wedding was still a go.

Kathryn Jussaume, 30, of Lowell, and Jason Destroismaison, 32, of Tyngsboro, have been planning their wedding for seven months now.

They picked a heck of date.

The-still-bubbling bride said she woke up Saturday morning and couldn’t see her mailbox. Snow was drifted so high it looked like there was an extra car in her driveway, but there wasn’t.

"I started to get a little bit nervous," Jussaume said Saturday afternoon. "But Jason was cool as a cucumber."

By 1:30 p.m., the couple had checked with all their vendors and the wedding is still a go, but not without a few hitches.

The bride said her snowblower broke Saturday morning, so she started to shovel on her wedding day.

She said she waved down a passing plow and told the driver it was wedding day.

"He said, ‘It’s your wedding day? Move over,’" Jussaume said. "It was so nice. He plowed us out."

The wedding was set for Merrimack College in North Andover, Mass., at 3 p.m.

"Jason, my husband-to-be, said as long as you’re there, I’m there, and if the priest is there we’ll be just fine," Jussaume said. "We’ve had so many people who were so wonderful today."

It should have been quite a memorable ceremony as long as the bride was visible in a white dress on such a white day.
