A man standing before the altar with his wife cracked a joke about how 2020 has not been the best year, and as if on cue, a flash of intense lightning followed.


The groom, Aaron Sawitsky, shared video footage of the waterside event via his Instagram page. In the footage, Sawitsky can be seen in a tux standing before his beautiful bride as he began his speech.

It was all well and good until he joked about how 2020 has not been the best year. As if to emphasize his point, a bolt of mighty lightning struck, and it was followed closely by thunder.


The couple and the guests cringed a bit, appearing to be shocked by the irony of the moment before they all burst out laughing, and it is certain the event will not be quickly forgotten. Sawitsky captioned the post,

"Turn on the sound for this one. Mother nature has one wry sense of humor. Thankfully no one got electrocuted, and we finished our vows before the rain started!"

According to him, he and his wife, Denice, had initially planned to get married in June; however, they had to shift it four separate times because of the health regulations brought on by the novel coronavirus pandemic.


When the pair finally decided on a date, they were confident that nothing would hinder them, including the weather and social distancing regulations.

Sawitsky and his wife are not the first couples to have an odd occurrence happen at their ceremony.

Before the ceremony began, they heard distant thunderstorms, which was shocking because there was nothing about a thunderstorm in the weather forecast.


Though things did not go entirely how Sawitsky and his wife planned, they can't help but feel amused at what seemed to be apt odd weather for their 2020 matrimony. Speaking about the odd occurrence, Sawitsky said to WDWH,

"The timing was pretty epic. 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. Yea, that's 2020. And kind of laugh."

Despite the dubious weather, the couple finished their ceremony and expressed gratitude that none of the 36 friends present for it was injured.


Sawitsky and his wife are not the first couples to have an odd occurrence happen at their ceremony. In fact, theirs may seem like a tease when compared to Dr. Israa Seblani, who received the shock of her life when the deadly Beirut explosion went off as she posed for a photo shoot in her wedding gown.

Seblani and her husband had initially planned to get married in the US; however, after waiting three years to acquire his Visa, the pair decided they couldn't wait anymore.

Seblani and her husband, Ahmad Sbeih, were unharmed in the explosion, and like Sawistky and Denice, the incident is not one they will ever forget.
