A Massachusetts newlywed is thanking Boston Police for coming to the assistance of himself, his groomsmen, and vendors who found themselves stranded just hours before his wedding ceremony and “saving the day” by aiding them.

According to Boston Police, officers from its Harbor Patrol Unit acted quickly on Saturday after learning that a ferry that was supposed to proceed to Thompson Island for a wedding there was inoperable and docked in the city’s harbour.

“While the bride was already on the island, the officers were informed that the groom was standing by at the delayed ferry boat,” police said in a statement. “The officers quickly responded to assist but when they arrived to escort the groom, they realized that the situation was dire, as several other members of the wedding party were also without a means of transport in addition to the photographer, the D.J. and all the decorative flowers for the ceremony.”

Boston Police say the officers ultimately made sure “that all parties involved, as well as the floral arrangements, made it safely to their intended destination out in the harbor.”

The groom, Patrick Mahoney, subsequently said after getting married, “They were there really fast to send my groomsmen and all of our vendors out here to the island and kind of save the day.”

The bride wasn’t made aware of the issue until she had already walked down the aisle, according to the newspaper, although Mahoney and the 13 other passengers who were ferried by the police boat only arrived 17 minutes later than anticipated.

After the wedding, one of the escorting officers, Joe Matthews, went back to the island “to share a laugh and congratulate the newlywed couple before they returned to their celebration surrounded by their friends, families, and loved ones,” according to the Boston Police Department.

“The men and women of the Boston Police Department join with Officers Joe Matthews and Stefani McGrath to congratulate the couple as they celebrate their very special day, and we thank our officers for going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure they could enjoy it together,” it added.

Matthews, who told the Boston Globe that his own wedding day was the best day of his life, said “it was good to get a nice call for a change and help people out.”
