Texas Couple Bummed After Downsizing Wedding Get Surprise Parade

Don’t rain on their parade! Jade and Houston Holmes had planned a country club wedding with over 200 guests expected to attend. Because of new safety guidelines implemented due to coronavirus, their plans were dashed and they instead decided to marry in a downsized ceremony.

Instead of the big wedding, the pair was forced to move the wedding to a family backyard in Dallas, Texas. After the modest ceremony, Jade and Houston who are both 22 moved to the front yard of the home for some photos and they got the surprise of their lives.

The freshly married couple were shocked to find that their downsized wedding had turned into a big parade.

The couple was pleasantly surprised to find a long line of cars filled with guests who were supposed to attend the wedding. It was a wedding day parade! According to People, the parade consisted of over 50 vehicles many of which were decorated with balloons. Drivers honked their horns and passengers yelled out the window, cheering for the newly minted husband and wife.

In addition to cars, there were also trailers pulled behind a couple of the vehicles that resembled parade floats. The participants also through “J & H” ballons to the couple and showered them with confetti.

The couple looked legit shocked when the cars started to roll by.

Health officials have said that the only way to slow the spread of COVID-19 is by practicing good hygiene and social distancing. Because of the creative thinking of this couple’s guests, they were able to celebrate at a safe distance.

We imagine this type of gesture made the entire day even more special than a traditional wedding. We know the couple wanted their big wedding, but how many couples can say they got a literal parade on their wedding day?

Houston Holmes posted pictures after the event.

Houston posted photos from the special day to his Instagram account. He captioned the photos, “We said we’d get married on the 21st, come hell or high water (or pandemic). We did it with our 9 closest friends and family… and an ENTIRE PARADE. Up next: relax.”

An entire parade indeed! The young newlyweds look so incredibly happy and we’re thrilled for them.

A smaller wedding was not ideal but a whole lot of people got to celebrate this lucky couple on their wedding day. Although we’re living through strange times, we can still show up for people and spread love in unexpected ways.

  1. This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited here online on the 22 of MARCH and i saw a marvelous testimony of a woman from United States on the forum about the good works DR BAKABA I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR.BAKABA did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my husband back i just as i read on the internet I was truly shocked when my husband knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR.BAKABA For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of my marriage. Contact him now for any kind of help via Email; [email protected] or you add him on whatsApp number +2347063836098 or call HIM, THANKS DR BAKABA i will always tell the world how you bring my family back
