It's not everyday that you get married and especially, not during a pandemic. A nurse and a first responder tied the knot in a social distance ceremony in their back yard with family and friends watching through computer screens and a few neighbors watching from chairs on the other side of the fence, according to Yahoo. I couldn't imagine having a set date for your wedding and then having to make the hard decision to not put your loved ones at risk but it's to be understood! We all need to stay safe!
After getting engaged in August 2018, nurse Lauren Rovinsky and first responder Donnie Thomas threw themselves into “going all out” for their dreamwedding, inviting nearly 200 guests to a beautifully restored farm in Pennsylvania and booking a DJ, live musicians and a photo booth — “the whole nine yards,” the bride says. But then thecoronaviruspandemic struck, and stay-at-home orders took effect, and so the couple spent March 27 saying “I do” not as they’d originally envisioned but on their own back deck, in a socially distanced ceremony witnessed by their dogs, a handful of loved ones watching from computer screens and some neighbors seated on the other side of the fence, in folding chairs placed at least six feet apart.
