PORTLAND, Maine — A Portland couple says they never considered canceling their wedding, despite an apartment fire that displaced nearly 20 people just hours before their vows.

Duska Perry and John Martovich were residents of a Congress Street apartment complex that caught fire Sunday morning. The couple lost the wedding cake they were baking themselves and several musical instruments but not the wedding dress.

“We got a beautiful cake donated,” Martovich told WMTW. “A lot of people have stepped up in emergency and donated services, time, living space, socks!”
