A couple from Utah held a drive-in wedding so their guests could remain safe during the Coronavirus pandemic. The coolest part, guests could follow along with the ceremony on their radios!
Brennan and Abby Norman realized last month that their wedding set for April 25 wouldn’t be able to go on as planned.
“We knew things had to change,” the groom tells PEOPLE. “We knew we wouldn’t be able to have a reception. We knew we weren’t going to be able to have any sort of parties or major gatherings when they started shutting down all the schools.”
When they came up with the idea of a drive-in wedding in Morgan, Utah, guests were “shocked,” says Brennan.
“They didn’t know how a drive-in wedding was going to work,” he says. “Neither did we, though!”
And since their honeymoon was canceled and they weren’t going to have a huge reception anyway, the bride and groom, both 21, decided to move up the date to April 10.
“We were like, ‘Why would we wait?’ ” says Brennan.
The location was picked out and set up the night before the wedding — and they even figured out how to allow their guests to listen in on the ceremony, to everything from the music as Abby walked down the aisle to their vows.
Brennan connected with a friend who puts on a huge Christmas decoration display each year, complete with lights that sync up to music. With his advice and help from employees at a local Radio Shack, he used a FM transmitter so guests could turn on a specific radio station from their car stereos to tune in.
The wedding looked stunning!
