Bride’s wedding flowers in central Georgia to be donated
Keali Lay’s wedding has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, but she and her florist are doing their part to spread some joy.
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC – A bride and her florist are spreading something positive amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Keali Lay is from Central Georgia but now lives in South Carolina.
According to a post on her Facebook page, she and her fiancé Jeff Scheider should be married this Saturday.
But the big day is now being postponed as the COVID-19 outbreak and CDC guidelines urge people to limit the number of people in gatherings to 10 or fewer.
“There are no words to describe this feeling, especially when we were four days away,” Lay said in the Post.
Lay said her wedding was booked and planned about six months in advance.
“We also looked forward to seeing friends and family we haven’t seen in months, some in a year or more,” Lay said in the Post.
Despite being heartbroken, the couple, along with their florist, saw an opportunity to give back.
“We have also been informed by our amazing Florist Circle of Life Plant Rental & Gardenias Event Floral that all of our wedding flowers have arrived [Monday] is donated to people in need of happiness and joy, including elderly patients and other members of our community, “said Lay.
At the end of the post, Lay asked those who saw it to “share something joyful and uplifting, or better yet, do something joyful and uplifting”.
Lay will still be legally married on Saturday, she said, but on a much smaller scale, only present with immediate family and close friends.
Circle of Life Plant Rentals and Gardenias Event Floral is based on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
