A couple got married in their back garden while their guests watched on Facebook Live – and their dogs dressed as bridesmaids.
Autumn Wood, 28, and Christian Miller, 28, obviously couldn’t have the wedding they planned due to lockdown – so they came up with another way to tie the knot.
The ceremony was officiated by her brother-in-law, who they are isolating with, and their wedding pics saw them don face masks, and the wedding buffet included Corona beer.
And their guests didn’t miss out on the ceremony – all tuning in via Facebook Live to watch the beautiful nuptials, at their home in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Newlywed Autumn, an IT supervisor, said: “I had already gathered a lot of decorations and with our anniversary coming up, we just didn’t want to wait to be married any longer.
“Christian, his parents and I spent the day transforming the backyard with things we had planned to use in May and we sent out a notice on Facebook for our families to join the livestream so they could watch our ceremony.
“Our dogs Sasha and Oreo were my stand in bridesmaids and although they were very good and didn’t bark at all, they totally stole the show!
“My new brother in law Ben married us and then cooked us all an incredible steak dinner followed by a delicious carrot cheesecake made by my mother in law Barb.
“Afterwards, we sat by the fire and listened to our wedding playlist for the rest of the night.
“It was perfect – it wasn’t what I planned and it didn’t go the way I had been planning for months but I wouldn’t trade it.
“I felt beautiful, it was all about me and the love of my life and I think looking back it’s going to be a wonderful story and moment for us.
“I think our friends and family needed a break from the chaos and for a moment, we gave them that peace. I’ll cherish that forever.”
After months of planning the perfect day, the engaged pair were devastated when lockdown caused their wedding on on May 23 to be cancelled.
However, the creative couple decided coronavirus would not ruin their plans and chose to get married anyway at their home in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Standing beneath a beautifully decorated wooden arch on their porch, water jet machine operator Christian and Autumn looked picture perfect.
Just Autumn’s mum Cindi, Christian’s parents Tom and Barb and Christian’s brother Ben were present as the sweet couple got married on April 20 – the anniversary of the day they met.
The couple have also rescheduled their honeymoon to Disneyland, planned for August.
