- Dylan Perkins and Savannah Kulenic were supposed to have their wedding in Hawaii.
- But things changed in an instant when the Covid-19 pandemic started.
- So they instead celebrate it on a small beach along the North Carolina coast, but not without another unprecedented problem, but all thanks to the FedEx driver who saved the day!
The COVID-19 has truly impacted every aspect of people’s lives—even the North Carolina couple’s long planned wedding.
Dylan Perkins and Savannah Kulenic have long been planning of having their dream wedding in Hawaii. But after the novel coronavirus outbreak, their plans had to be altered drastically and they have since been thinking of other ways to get married.
In the end, they decided to tie the knot in a small beach-side wedding along the coast of North Carolina. But there is one other problem—the maker of Savannah’s wedding ring was forced to close together with all the nonessential businesses in the area.
As if in a miracle, the store reopened for only one day just before the couple’s wedding and promised them to overnight Savannah’s ring via FedEx! All good!—until they learned it was scheduled to arrive by 4:30pm and the wedding starts at 3pm.
Amy Shores, the photographer of the wedding from Seaside Topsail Photography, was the one who left a note for the FedEx driver on the front door, “I put in capital letters, ‘YOU HAVE THE RING,’” she said.
Upon seeing the note by the door, the FedEx driver Joe Engel, sensed the urgency of the matter and decided to rush to the beach to hand-deliver the package instead of simply dropping it off, and Amy was there to take photos of that sweet moment as Joe hands the package to the bride herself.
“She immediately turned and started running towards me. We kind of met down the beach, and I just handed it over to her and said, ‘Congratulations,’” Joe said.
The pictures Amy took went viral on social media and she admitted that this was the most memorable wedding photographs that she’d taken among the many weddings she had already attended.
“I’ve shot extravagant weddings with tons of people. This literally had 5 people, and it’s probably the most special wedding I’ve ever photographed,” Amy said. “It was just the most magical moment.”
Joe on the other hand was just happy for them, “I’m so happy that they had a great wedding, and I didn’t ruin it by being the last-minute ring bearer,” he said.
Truly, Joe is one of the most essential workers who keep this world running amid this pandemic and we are very grateful for them!
