MINT HILL, N.C. — With many engaged couples postponing their weddings during the coronavirus outbreak, one Mint Hill couple is finding a way to get married virtually, WSOC reports.

Danielle Burnette and Ismael Cruz planned their dream wedding together and were supposed to be married on Sunday.

“And then, the coronavirus,” Burnette said.

The couple is still going to exchange their vows Sunday after an emotional turn of events caused them to have to postpone their wedding ceremony until August.

Their pastor will officiate through Skype all the way from Washington state, and family members will watch on Facebook Live.

“The family will be there without being there, so they are all safe in their homes,” Burnette said.

The couple plans to have a small and simple ceremony in a neighbor’s backyard barn on Sunday.

“We are saving the real beautiful moments for August,” Burnette said.

The couple says they advise other couples who are facing the same challenge to try and remember they have each other.
