A bride and groom in Cleveland, Ohio, donated and served the food intended for their wedding to a women’s shelter after they had to cancel the reception due to COVID-19.
Footage and images released by The City Mission shows newlyweds Melanie and Tyler in full wedding gear, hair nets, and face masks, serving food at Laura’s Home Crisis Center.
According to Inside Edition, the pair scaled down their wedding plans after the coronavirus pandemic hit.
They decided to proceed with their vows at a small ceremony in the bride’s grandparents’ backyard, and donated the food for the intended guests to the shelter, where they served it to 135 women and children in need. Credit: Caroline Stoltzfus/The City Mission via Storyful
