If something this trivial requires psychiatric care, then this couple clearly have some significant problems that need sorting out.
A couple in Florida is suing a yacht company, claiming that the bride suffered post-traumatic stress disorder after the reception had to be moved at the last minute.
A small fire broke out in the kitchen of a yacht that Karina Edde and Lorenzo Lapi leased from Great Bay Corp. for their Aug. 14, 2010, post-nuptials in Miami, reports Courthouse News Service.
The couple claim the yacht company didn’t call the fire department right away, and then didn’t call the coast guard for clearance to proceed after the fire was put out, according to the report.
Instead, they decided to remove all the party paraphernalia from the boat and set it up in the lobby of the Hyatt Hotel, next to where the boat was docked.
The complaint reads in part: “Great Bay … horribly forever marred what should have been a very special and unique day for the plaintiffs, and left them with no alternative but to sullenly leave the dockside. The plaintiffs were unable to commence their life together as planned.”
The beleaguered bride is reportedly under psychiatric care for the trauma and “devastation” she endured. She has been unable to attend any other weddings.
Edde and Lapi are seeking $4,200 in damages plus legal fees for breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
