Evansville couple to host drive-in wedding ceremony

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A Tri-State couple is planning their wedding in a unique way to allow friends and family to see the ceremony in person.

William Brokus and Ashley Wright have been together for over two years now, and got engaged last year

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and a lack of available venues, they have been forced to push back their wedding date, but they finally decided on Saturday, January 2.

The couple plans to have a drive-in wedding ceremony at Burdette Park, similar to a drive-in church service.

Once they officially tie the knot this weekend, guests will have a chance to drive past to congratulate them.

The couple says they are happy they were able to find a safe way to make sure everyone could be a part of their special day.

“You never know when someone may not be here the next day,” Brokus said. “There are certain family members that we don’t know if we’ll get another holiday with.”

“And that’s why we’re streaming on Facebook too - for the people who can’t physically be here,” Wright said.

The bride and groom hope to have an in-person wedding reception later this year when it’s possible to be held safely.
