'I do' in a time of novel coronavirus means technology helping to connect in new ways and through the help of FaceTime

One of the first Coastal Bend couples to say 'I do' through social media shares their love with viewers with the help of 3News anchor/ officiant John-Thomas Kobos.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Tiffany and Gabriel Segura were supposed to have their big day on Saturday, March 28, 2020 but Covid-19 forced them to reschedule.

They were one of the first to resort to tech to help make their dream come true.

The happy couple plans to have a proper ceremony with family and friends later in August but could not wait to tie the knot.

They turned to their officiant and 3News anchor John-Thomas Kobos to seal the deal.

Behind the scene: the couple met with John-Thomas just before Nueces county and Corpus Christi officials issued a 'stay at home' order preventing them from hosting large gatherings. All John-Thomas needed them to do as they snuck away from their family Saturday was to utter a few required, legal words to make their special day even more memorable.

Congrats to the newly weds!
