When planning large weddings, couples are often told to expect the unexpected, however, it’s safe to say a global pandemic likely wasn’t something that crossed Jon Pardi and Summer Duncan’s minds when they planned to wed in May of 2020.
Like many couples across the United States, and the world for that matter, Jon and Summer have been forced to postpone their upcoming nuptials due to COVID-19. Originally scheduled to wed in Montana at a picturesque venue overlooking Yellowstone National Park, the couple will now exchange vows a little closer to home.
“The good part is, we moved it to Nashville,” Pardi revealed to Bobby Bones on the latest episode of The Bobby Cast.
When asked if they had any plans to go ahead and get married and have a wedding or party later to celebrate with friends and family, Pardi said no and explained that they want to have a traditional wedding.
“We’re gonna get over this,” he said. “Summer does not want to get married next year. We’re shooting for November now.”
The couple is now scrambling to piece together all of the details for their new wedding date.
“It is just at this big barn somewhere in Franklin, I think. We’re just kind of working out the details right now,” Pardi shared. “We just got a date and so it’s all kind of brand new again. We gotta do it all over again.”
Pardi and Duncan got engaged in October of 2019 on the stage of Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium after Pardi played two back-to-back sold-out shows.
