Engaged couple spreads cheer by sharing roses from postponed wedding

When Laura Waina and Michael Zoldan decided to postpone their Arizona wedding because of coronavirus fears, they had to figure out what to do with more than 2,000 roses they’d ordered.  So they picked up what they could fit in their car and set out to donate dozens and dozens of them.

With the help of their local news station, the Scottsdale couple learned of at least 150 people who wished to use the flowers, Waina told NBC News.

“Just hearing the stories from the people that reached out to us, we feel super blessed and know that it could’ve been so much worse,” she said.

The flowers went to three people: a woman whose 42-year-old sister unexpectedly passed away and whose favorite flowers happened to be white roses; a man whose mother had passed away in isolation; and another couple had previously postponed their wedding but went ahead with a two-person ceremony this week.  

“We felt bad for ourselves the most at first, but after we licked our wounds for two to three days, we realized it could be worse,” Zoldan told NBC News. “It was cathartic to help others that were struggling in very material ways.”
