A couple whose marriage was canceled because of the coronavirus ‘married’ in their backyard while their guests watched on Facebook Live.

Autumn Wood, 28, and Christian Miller, 28, of Cincinnati, Ohio, were unable to go through with the wedding they planned due to a lockdown – so they came up with another way to tie the knot.

Their ceremony was attended by Autumn’s brother-in-law, with whom they isolated, and saw they wore face masks and had dogs Sasha and Oreo as bridesmaids.

Only Autumn’s mom Cindi, Christian’s parents Tom and Barb, and Christian’s brother Ben were in attendance when the sweet couple got married on April 20 – the anniversary of the day they met.

The couple were able to transform their backyard with decorations they had already purchased for their original wedding day – which they moved until after the closure.

Newlywed Autumn, an IT supervisor, said: “I had already collected many decorations and we didn’t want to wait any longer to get married with our anniversary.

“Christian, his parents and I spent the day transforming the backyard with things we wanted to use in May, and we sent a message on Facebook for our families to join the live stream so they could watch our ceremony.

“Our dogs Sasha and Oreo were my stand in bridesmaids and although they were very good and didn’t bark at all, they totally stole the show!

‘My new brother-in-law Ben married us and then cooked us all an incredible steak dinner followed by a delicious carrot cheesecake made by my mother-in-law Barb.

Autumn said the ceremony was a “welcome break” from the pandemic and insisted that she “cherish” the memory of their big day forever

“Then we sat by the fire and listened to our wedding list for the rest of the evening.

“It was perfect – it wasn’t what I planned and it didn’t go the way I had planned for months, but I wouldn’t trade it.

“I felt beautiful, it was all about me and the love of my life and I think looking back will be a wonderful story and moment for us.”

“I think our friends and family needed a break from the chaos and for a moment we gave them that rest. I will cherish that forever. ‘

After planning the perfect day for months, the engaged couple was devastated when their marriage was canceled by lockdown on May 23.

But unwilling to let the virus ruin their big day, the couple stood under a beautifully decorated wooden arch on their porch decorated with lights, taking their vows.

The couple also moved their honeymoon to Disneyland, scheduled for August.
