Episode #32: A Corona Wedding with a Chick-fil-A Twist
COVID can’t stop love—at least not for these newlyweds who say it all started with a chance meeting at Chick-fil-A. Tens of thousands of couples had to cancel or postpone their weddings because of the Corona Virus. But many chose to press on despite the pandemic. Two of those determined to tie the knot are Kate and Artis. They were married in September, but say it all started with a chance meeting at Chick-fil-A.
They were college students at the University of Central Florida, walking with friends who stopped to chat outside the campus Chick-fil-A. Kate was in a relationship at the time and didn’t think much of Artis. But after graduation she moved to Orlando and recalled that Artis lived there, too. She reached out hoping for some help finding a place to live. They began to spend more and more time together and eventually decided to take their commitment to the next level.
Worried the pandemic would force them to postpone indefinitely they decided to just take the plunge and plan a Corona wedding. They even went back to the place where it all began with that chance meeting– Chick-fil-A. They posed for photos in the exact spot where their story started in 2011. We tested their compatibility in a round of “The Nuggy-Wed Game” where they both answered questions about the other’s Chick-fil-A choices, including their favorite sauces, typical order, and whether they would ever dress up like a cow to get free chicken. Listen to the full episode to see if this sweet couple really does have the special sauce!
