Awesome FedEx employee saves a wedding by delivering the ring to their beach ceremony just in time
A FedEx driver saved the most special day for two people in love!
The Raleigh, N.C. couple, Savannah Kulenic and Dylan Perkins had to cancel their dream Hawaiian wedding and their honeymoon due to the coronavirus pandemic. Instead, they had a small ceremony, with only 5 people attending.
According to WNCN-TV, a local broadcast station, the tiny wedding was held at a family member’s beach home on the North Carolina coast.
Considering the current situation, understandably, they had to wait until the last minute for the groom’s wedding band. They were temporarily closed because of the lockdown orders. Luckily, the company reopened just in time and agreed to send the band overnight, as Global News reports.
Savannah and Dylan’s wedding ceremony was scheduled for 3 p.m., but one thing was missing. The ring wasn’t set to arrive until 4:30 p.m.
On April 13th, Seaside Topsail Photography, which photographed the wedding, posted on Facebook:
“We had to leave a note on the front door to ask if he would bring the ring down to the beach. We began the ceremony on the beach and at the end of the ceremony my friend, Brandy, yelled “LOOK, IT’S THE FED EX MAN!””
They continue explaining how the kind FedEx employee was running towards them and waving the package. “It was amazing, This should be a FedEx commercial”, they add.
In one of the photos, the bride can be seen watching the delivery man running down the beach, and in another one, she is happily smiling as she takes the package from his hands.
Furthermore, in a Facebook post from April 15th, the photographer Amy Fowler Shores shared that FedEx was searching for the awesome employee who delivered the wedding ring just in time, despite the challenging times we live in.
The local media confirmed the driver was Joe Engel. He said he was glad he didn’t ruin the newlyweds special day by being late.
“I’m so happy that they had a great wedding, and I didn’t ruin it by being the last-minute ring bearer.”
