Over the weekend Daniel and Tara Callais got married on the campus of the University of West Alabama. For the past few days both have been staying at the Red Cross's evacuee shelter in Livingston.
"It's kind of took everybody's mind off of everything. It's a new beginning," says Daniel's brother, David Castigiloa.
The bride and groom were both from an area just outside New Orleans. They say they had been planning to "tie the knot" for sometime.
Shelter officials say the couple plans to stay in the area.
