Carol Stevenson, of Lexington, and Everett Conyers, of Nicholasville, were set to say “I do” on May 10, but the bride-to-be needed a place to stay before then, Lex18.com reported. Living together before exchanging vows didn’t feel right to the pair, who had gotten engaged on Thanksgiving.

The pair will also go ahead with their planned May 10 ceremony once Stevenson recovers.
