American couple Melanie and Tyler are what most would refer to as guardian angels.
The two had planned for their wedding before COVID-19 shook up everything.
This meant they had invited guests to the tune of 150 family members and friends.
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 KSh 200,000 and thanks to the kind couple, 135 people had something to eat 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.
