A brightly dressed bride with a sparkling and dazzling wedding gown was left with egg on her face after a groom she had dated for 10 years failed to show up for the big event.Sasha Aristide, 29, had spent three years planning for the wedding with the lover of her life, unaware of the impending humiliating experience that would hit her hard on the D-Day. Sasha who is a nurse said she met Kevin Hyppolite, office manager, 10 years ago and fell in love with him. All was rosy and fancy. A call from one of the bridesmaids informing Sasha that there was no wedding scheduled to take place at the intended venue hit her hard.
She nonetheless continued getting ready with her six bridesmaids and maid of honour after Kevin assured her things would be sorted as he was on the way coming.
After further inquiry, the bride learned the actual wedding venue had not received full payment and the booking had been cancelled. “I had no clue whatsoever that he was not planning to show up or having cold feet, I spoke to him the night before, he literally said ‘I love you I can’t wait to marry you.’ … We were talking the whole day.
I realised at 2:30pm and at that point, I didn’t have any emotions. I was so numb and in shock. I felt like I was in a trance,” recalled the teary Sasha as quoted by New York Post. When it was clear the wedding was a not going to happen, the dumbfounded and downcasted bride was left with no option but to find her way back home and try to live with the harsh reality
It took Kevin one week to reach out to Sasha with an intention of reconciling and fixing the mess.
The would-be groom denied claims that he intentionally and knowingly failed to show up for the wedding saying “it just happened that way”.
