MOUNT JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — They say life is all about perspective. While some may look at Monday's winter storm as a headache, for one couple it created the perfect winter wonderland for a marriage ceremony.

"I've always wanted a winter wedding wanted to get married in the snow and it was like my dreams came true," newlywed Natalie Wheeler said.

Michael and Natalie Wheeler pushed back their wedding a few times because of the coronavirus pandemic.

On Monday, they didn't want to wait any longer to say "I do."

With their officiant and photographer on board, the couple drove from Madison to Mount Juliet to tie the knot! The venue was at Tennessee Tiny Weddings.

"I want to give a shout-out to my photographer because he got stuck twice coming out to our wedding," Wheeler said.

Most of their guests couldn't make it, but Wheeler says she wouldn't change a thing. Even though it wasn't your traditional wedding, for Wheeler, it was perfect.

"It was so intimate just so much fun with him me and my mom..spent it with just us and building us up as a family, Wheeler said, "it turned out to be more magical than i ever thought possible."

The couple plans to have a formal celebration and reception for family and friends later this year.
