I'm just not in the mood for bad-news stories this morning. Yes, I skimmed the obligatory grueling famines and newest blood-lettings and tax lies and crooked politicians and cops, but I simply wasn't in the mood. Just for a nanosecond, I wanted something clear. Not that an underwater wedding really filled the counterpoint I was looking for, but at least I can allow myself to presume someone was laughing and happy.
KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) -- After a four-year courtship, a British Army sergeant and a former diving instructor have married underwater in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.The couple used an underwater tablet Thursday to exchange wedding vows beside Molasses Reef off Key Largo.In 2013, Thomas Mould, of Leicester, England, traveled on an Army adventure training dive trip to the Amoray Dive Resort in the Keys, where Sandra Hyde worked as an instructor.The couple connected. Hyde traveled to Leicester a few times, and he visited her in the states.They decided to marry and planned a summer wedding in an old English church but then decided an underwater wedding in the Keys would not only be more appropriate, but more cost-effective.The couple is honeymooning in the Keys, before returning to live in England.
