Holy Pandi-mony - 2020


Belle and Chase Kaui - LOVE>covid

Holy Pandi-mony

The girl - the guy. 

The sparks - they fly!

They date - they mesh!

The ring! The dress!

The date. The colors.

The maids. The flowers!

The music. The cake.

The favors made.

Yes, all was chosen 

Plans were set.

And then 

Coronavirus hit!

The courthouse closed for days on end

Their April date came rushing in!

No license? You’re kidding!

No more than 10 at the wedding?

The love they felt for one another

Made all this chaos just one small hurdle.

While everyone thought;

“They could just wait”

The girl - the guy

They weren’t dismayed.

So in the breeze

They said “I do”

They walked the parking lot

And all horns blew

As friends in cars

Cheered and cried

When the handsome groom

Kissed the beautiful Bride.


You’ve made a mess.

But even you can’t stop.

A bride in her dress!

In early April, we were still very limited and unfamiliar with all of the COVID-19 restrictions. Undaunted by each new ruling, this young couple made the decision to go ahead with their wedding with just their immediate family. As a last minute idea - we sent out a post on Facebook; “Anyone who wants to help celebrate - be in the church parking lot ready to blow horns and cheer as the bride and groom exit the building.” 

As the hour grew closer, we realized the immediate family had more than 10 members. Decor was ditched except for a small garland of flowers, and the wedding was moved to the front entrance of the building. Her aisle was formed by the cars gathered. When the groom kissed the bride, horns blared, engines revved, and everyone cheered - as the tears streamed down our faces! It was definitely a wedding to remember!
