A couple from Massachusetts had a bumpy marriage on Saturday.

Aaron Sawitsky and Denice McClure were in the middle of their socially distant outdoor ceremony when lightning struck an impending thunderstorm. The bolt suddenly went through the body of water they were standing from and was quickly followed by a crackling boom right after the groom joked, “Let’s face it, 2020 hasn’t been the best year.”

The astonishing moment was documented in a video posted to Sawitsky’s Instagram.

“Turn on the sound for this one.” Mother Nature has an ironic sense of humor, ”he wrote the next day. “Fortunately, no one was electrocuted and we finished our vows before the rain started!”

Sawitsky was not immediately available for comment on the moment further, as he and his new wife had left to enjoy their honeymoon at the time of posting.

However, Sawitsky managed to tell independent TV station WHDH that he thought the “moment was pretty epic” before he went on vacation with his sweetheart. “And that perfectly captures the experience of 2020 so far. So I think the only thing you can do is look at it and say to yourself, “Yeah. Yes, it’s 2020. ‘And a bit of a laugh,’ he added.

Despite the disruption, Sawitsky and McClure were able to complete their ceremony, which had already been postponed for two months due to the state of the coronavirus pandemic.

Thirty-six guests attended their wedding on August 22, and luckily no one was hurt in the process.

The likelihood of lightning striking at a wedding – and punctuating the groom’s joke – is probably incalculable. However, the probability of being struck by lightning is approximately 1 in 280,000, according to current records from the National Lightning Safety Institute. Interestingly, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention adds that 32% of lightning injuries occur indoors.
