American couple Melanie and Tyler are what many would refer to as guardian angels. The two had planned for their wedding before Covid-19 shook everything up.
This meant they had invited around 150 family members and friends as guests and planned catering as well, as one would do on a special day life this.
However, due to restrictions imposed during the pandemic, the two could not host such a large number of guests during their August 2020 event.
The original venue they had booked earlier for their ceremony also cancelled their reservation, saying they were no longer hosting weddings.
According to the Washington Post, Melanie decided not to waste the food and chose to donate it to a women’s shelter.

“Since we had already prepaid for the food, we could have had the wedding somewhere else and still invited everyone, but it did not make sense,” the bride said.
The meal cost around R31 000 and thanks to the kind couple, 135 people had something special to enjoy that day.
As if their act of kindness was not enough, the pair rushed to the shelter after their nuptials and served the food while in their wedding attire.
The groom described their big day as the most beautiful day ever.
