Dennis Quaid and Laura Savoie didn’t let the pandemic stop them from tying the knot.
The couple reveals they eloped during a private ceremony on June 2 at a seaside resort in Santa Barbara, Calif., according to People.
“It was beautiful,” Quaid, 66, says of the nuptials.
The actor and University of Texas Ph.D. student originally planned on getting married in Hawaii in April with a second reception for friends and family in Nashville. After COVID-19 nixed travel and plans for a large celebration, the two exchanged vows with only their pastor as a witness.
“Just looking into her eyes, she was the most stunning bride,” Quaid says.
