Packed pews at Michigan wedding, but guests are cardboard

A creative idea and a bit of charity meant one Michigan couple would get to have a church wedding despite a stay-at-home order.

Packed pews at Michigan wedding, but guests are cardboard

Dan Stuglik says he just didn't want to see his bride, Amy Simonson, walking down the aisle in an empty church.

But with a Michigan order banning large gatherings - including weddings - they had to get creative.

"I wanted something that would represent the guests that could have been here," Stuglik told TV station WSBT.

He went out to buy cardboard sheets to line the empty pews, and when the supplier learned why, the project bloomed into something special.

"They brought in a designer and an engineer, to make our guests for us, " Stuglik said.

"We imagined just an oval, and a body," Simonson said.

"And then [the supplier] said, 'hey we made females and males and children.'" Simonson said the supplier donated all the cardboard, for the special occasion, this Saturday.
