Nebraska couple was forced to relocate their wedding due to Bovee Wildfire in North Central Nebraska

GRAND ISLAND, Nebraska – The Bovee Wildfire has impacted many in North Central Nebraska, including a couple whose wedding had to be moved.

Jami Foster and Jared Denny will have their wedding thanks to a hospitality program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Class for Advanced Events, which has chosen them as the couple for whom they will design and decorate a wedding. The staff has been putting in extra hours to complete the project.

The leader of the event, Maycee Quick, stated that additional suppliers, catering, and decorations have been secured during the previous week. “As a group, we have been arranging a fresh menu as well as new venues for our wedding.”

The couple had planned to celebrate their special day on Saturday at the state 4H Camp Site, but after it was demolished, they were forced to relocate. The new venue will be in the Nebraska State Fair’s Raising Nebraska. Last year, the UNL class collaborated with Raising Nebraska on a service project and maintained regular contact with the organization throughout the year.

“About halfway back home, we were informed that the venue was no longer usable,” said communications leader Addison Roth. “Therefore, we had to resort to plan B, and the next spot that came to mind was another region linked with the University of Nebraska; Raising Nebraska was our second choice.”

The UNL class had only five weeks to complete wedding preparations, and it is sometimes necessary to have a backup plan while working on short notice.

“It was a tremendous sense of relief,” remarked Quick. “When I first received the call about our venue, I was stunned and absolutely speechless regarding our following steps. Therefore, it was a tremendous relief to learn that Raising Nebraska and all of its staff are willing to assist us, and I am quite grateful for this opportunity.”

The wedding planning class secured Hy-Vee as a caterer, and Visit Grand Island is providing lodging for the wedding crew and family. Due to the efforts of the class, the couple was able to maintain their wedding date.
