Groom Slams 2020 as Year From Hell, Then Mother Nature Responds
The old commercial said, "You can't fool Mother Nature", and, apparently, she's not very fond of you talking badly about her, either.
A Massachusetts groom had no sooner cracked about 2020 being a horrific year than lightning struck near the outdoor ceremony.
A video filmed by a wedding guest and posted to Instagram by groom Aaron Sawitsky shows the couple exchanging vows during their outdoor wedding.
Aaron says, "Let's face it, 2020 has not been the best year," just before a bolt of lightning crashes down on the lake behind him, followed quickly by the boom of thunder.
The video shows Aaron gesture toward the scene as evidence of his point as the bride, Denise, and wedding guests erupt into laughter.
"The timing was pretty epic," he says. "And it so perfectly captures the experience of 2020 so far. So, I think the only thing you can do is look at it and be like, 'Yup. Yeah, that's 2020.' And kind of laugh."
Aaron said the wedding had repeatedly been delayed due to concerns about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The rest of the ceremony went on without any other unexpected complications.
