FOX8 reporter Michael Hennessey and producer Katie Fulp wed in Southport ahead of Hurricane Matthew

SOUTHPORT, N.C. — A very FOX8 wedding took place in Southport ahead of Hurricane Matthew.

FOX8 reporter Michael Hennessey and weekday 10 p.m. producer Katie Fulp wed at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church on Thursday.

The newlyweds initially planned on getting married Saturday, but Hurricane Matthew caused them to push the wedding up two days.

The Hennesseys will honeymoon in the Caribbean and will return to FOX8 on Oct. 17.

Congratulations Michael and Katie!
