BOISE, Idaho — A Boise couple moved up their wedding plans due to the COVID-19 pandemic, getting married by Judge Russell Comstock in a driveway while their family maintained a social distance in the street.

Casey Dennard and Tiffany Thomas were planning a wedding in the future but concerns over the coronavirus led them to get married right away.

Michael Dennard, the groom's father, told KTVB the couple wanted to move up their nuptials to make sure their family members were covered by insurance.

The wedding was held on Tuesday, March 24, a day before Governor Little's stay-at-home order, in the driveway of Judge Russell Comstock, who officiated the ceremony dressed in his robe along with a mask and gloves.

The couple plans to have a "regular" wedding sometime in the future to include more friends and family. They also plan to take a honeymoon when it's safe to do so.
