Earthquake interrupts wedding

Oh, poor East Coast people. You have shitty weather, and now you have earthquakes too? This cute couple had their wedding interrupted by yesterday's earthquake. Steve and Amy Mutton were getting ready to officially marry at the City Hall Chapel in New York when the earthquake started.

"We were in the chapel waiting," said Mutton, a 40-year-old IT consultant from London. "All of a sudden, they started evacuating the building." The rumbling, stemming from a quake that measured 5.8 on the Richter Scale and centered in Virginia, was over in just seconds.

His bride, Amy Mutton, 36, a project manager from Park Ridge, N.J., insisted it was a good omen and they went ahead and got hitched after the earth stopped moving. "It's not something we could have planned on. So you've got to go with it and get on with it, don't you?" she said.

Still, she was a little rattled. "I'm gonna go home and have some champagne now," she said.

The couple met in 2007 when she went to London for business. She will move to London to be with him. They planned the wedding five weeks ago.
