(WJAR) A 32-acre farm should have been the setting for a fairy-tale wedding Saturday, but the smell of a large manure pile nearby ruined the celebration.
"I don’t know if I have words to describe the overwhelming smell of manure," said the bride’s father, Marc Charren. "There is a beautiful yard, and all you smell is chicken manure."
Julie Charren and her husband, Kyle, had been dreaming of an enchanted-themed wedding for years. She had postponed it earlier because she has been battling breast cancer.
