A Youngsville couple didn't let the pandemic stop them from saying "I do."

The couple exchanged vows in front of friends and family, but all from a safe distance.

Guests remained in their vehicles to maintain social distancing, but were able to watch the ceremony on a large screen set up outside.

The couple also used an FM transmitter so guests could tune in through their car radios.

The bride's brother said that the wedding is an example of how the community can overcome these difficult times.

"Take a look at it! This is amazing. We are going to overcome and we are going to perservere through all of this," he said. "I just couldn't be happier for the bride and groom."
