Couple married in TIA given a Disney honeymoon

ORLANDO — An anonymous veteran is giving a Disney honeymoon to a Florida couple who got married at an airport after a blizzard made the groom miss his wedding.

Shawna Hodge and Army Pvt. Cody Beckwith were supposed to be married last weekend in Orlando. A blizzard stranded Beckwith in Baltimore, and the only flight back to Florida was going to Tampa.

Hodge surprised Beckwith at Tampa International Airport on Monday in her wedding dress, with the rest of their wedding party behind her.

Hodge says the couple didn't have plans or the money for a honeymoon until the business manager at Walt Disney World's Shades of Green Resort called. The manager relayed the offer of a three-night stay, including meals and park tickets.

A card identified the donor only as "a Vietnam vet and his wife."
