Now, the couple said that they want all gifts and possible donations they get to go to Enlace de Familias in Holyoke, an organization helping Puerto Rican families coming to western Massachusetts from Puerto Rico after the storms.

"They have such a great thing going on here, so why not donate some time and help give back.  We had a huge blessing given to us, so we're giving back," said Sandra.

Joe added, "It's tough to say what we went through because it doesn't amount to what the people are going through.  I would cancel my wedding a million times over if I could take away the pain that the people on the island are going through."

The couple's wedding is fast approaching in April.
