Well it's official our wedding and all festivities are cancelled. (We had to wait for the venue to cancel) While the news obviously isn't the best, it is necessary to keep everyone safe..which is way more important than a wedding! Everyone stay inside and enjoy your time with people who matter the most! #coronabride #coronabrides
On April 5, 2020, the original date for her wedding, Hale’s sister and maid-of-honor told Hale that she was planning a date for Hale and Lind to try and make up for their special day being canceled.
When they stepped out onto their front porch they realized it had been transformed into a scene from Hale’s favorite Disney movie, Tangled.
The patio was adorned with paper lanterns, hidden Mickeys, and a table set for two including a cake and their personalized wedding cake topper. Right outside was a parade of Hale’s bridesmaids in their bridesmaid dresses with friends and family all dancing in the street and cheering.

Well today would have been our wedding day. I woke up feeling sad knowing there's nothing I could do about it…at 2pm I heard the outdoor gate and saw Jen Hale. She told me she was setting up a date for us and go inside…..2.5 hours later she tells us to come outside and WOW. My front porch was decorated like a scene from tangled with hidden mickey's everywhere! A parade of my bridesmaids (wearing their dresses)and family/friends DANCING IN STREET! I can't even put into words the love i felt today. Today was so special it makes me that much more excited to marry Robert Lind. My heart is so full . Thank you Jen for the best surprise of my life. You are simply amazing.

Hale’s sister, Jennifer, had arranged for everyone to learn a short dance routine from one of Hale’s favorite movies Can’t Hardly Wait. They all joined together outside Hale’s home and performed the choreographed routine, all while maintaining a safe distance from each other to abide by the social distancing rules.
After the dance, Hale’s dad gave a short speech, acknowledging that they expected a lot more from the day. However, the family did the best they could to still make it special for them. “This is gonna make y’all’s relationship stronger than ever,” he said.
Hale shared a post on Instagram captioned, “BEST NON WEDDING DAY EVER!”
We are so thrilled that Krystal and Robert were able to have such a memorable day and all thanks to her sister, Jennifer, for bringing it all together!
