Nurses Fill Pews With Photos of Loved Ones for Wedding; Will Skip Honeymoon to Keep Saving Lives
FRANCISVILLE, La. (WAFB) – Inside a Louisiana church there was silence, except for ceremonious music, as Clare Seghers tearfully walked down the aisle towards her fiancé, Mel Keefer.
Under normal circumstances that silence would be credited to wedding attendees stunned by a gracious bride.
But on Seghers’ wedding day it was due to the chapel where she was wed being almost empty as the world battles the coronavirus pandemic.
Complying with social distancing guidelines to prevent the virus from spreading meant Seghers and Keefer couldn’t have their loved ones attend their ceremony.
So they settled for the next best thing.
Seghers and Keefer set up an online live stream for their loved ones to watch them exchange vows.
To make the moment even more special, attendees submitted their photographs before the wedding.
