RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A delivery driver arrived just in the nick of time to a beach wedding in North Carolina with a critical piece of the ceremony.
Savannah Kulenic and Dylan Perkins planned to get married April 10 in Hawaii, but their dream wedding was curtailed by the coronavirus pandemic, WNCN-TV reported.
So, the lovebirds organized a last-minute beach ceremony with a total of five people on the special day last week.
The company making the groom’s wedding band had been shuttered by the virus outbreak, but said the day before the wedding that it could overnight the ring, Kulenic said.
One problem: The wedding was scheduled for 3 p.m., but the ring wasn’t expected to show up until 4:30.
The bride had the photographer, Amy Shores, leave a note on her door for the delivery driver telling him to come down to the beach, saying: “You have the ring.”
FedEx driver Joe Engel answered the call of duty, marching down the sand to hand deliver the package during the ceremony. The handoff was captured on camera by Shores, owner of Seaside Topsail Photography, and shared in a Facebook post.
“I can’t thank him enough for what he did,” Kulenic said.
“You know with all of the bad going on, there are still good people in the world, and in the end, love wins,” said Shores.
