CLEVELAND (WJW) — A Northeast Ohio couple made their wedding day about others.
Melanie and Tyler Tapajna were married Saturday in front of family and friends but were unable to hold the wedding celebration.
So, instead, they donated all the food from the wedding food truck that they had already paid for to the City Mission of Cleveland, which is a crisis center for men, women and children experiencing homelessness.
Not only did the couple donate the food, but they showed up just minutes after saying “I do” to serve the meals to about 140 people.
“Because we had to cancel everything, we had decided because we were donating we wanted to see the smiles on everyone’s face and hopefully everyone enjoys it. It will put a smile on our face, underneath the mask, so that is why we wanted to be here,” said Melanie.
