A Grand Rapids Couple Gets Married Under Nursing Home Balcony
The bride's 91-year-old mother was able to attend the couple's wedding after a venue change.
Many of us are having a hard time when it comes to our parents and/or grand parents who are quarantined in assisted living facilities or nursing homes. Not only can we not see them but they might be missing out of important moments in our lives.
That's why Lisa Deiters and Mark Green scrapped their original plan to get married at Douglas-Walker Park in Byron Center. They decided to get married outside of the Samaritas Senior Living facility in Grand Rapids. Luckily Lisa's mom, Phyllis Deiters has a balcony that overlooks a courtyard. It was a small wedding according to WZZM,
Mark and Lisa wound up getting their marriage license approved, so on the morning of April 26th, a small grouping of their friends and family entered the courtyard, making sure social distancing was being respected. Two ministers and a wedding photographer were also among the attendees.
Congrats to the happy newlyweds. You can see some of the happy couple's big day in the video below from WZZM.
