Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control has recommended the limitation or cancellation of large gatherings for the next eight weeks. Family events such as funerals and weddings are no exception.
Some celebrities, like Emma Stone and Dave McCary, appear to be following that directive, as they have reportedly postponed their wedding, which was supposed to take place in Los Angeles this weekend.
The relationship between the Oscar-winning actress and the Saturday Night Live writer and segment director has been the subject of intrigue for many, especially as they have kept a profile even lower than Jennifer Lawrence and Cooke Maroney. When the couple announced their engagement in December of last year via McCary’s Instagram, it became clear that their relationship, which started sometime in the middle of 2017, was serious enough for them to tie the knot.
Stone and McCary may not be the only celebrity couple to postpone their wedding due to the fact that COVID-19 has quickly spread across the globe and has yet to be contained. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, according to the Daily Mirror, may soon follow suit with their impending nuptials. Brittany Snow, on the other hand, held her ceremony with Tyler Stanaland in front of roughly 100 guests in Malibu last weekend, at a time when it was crucial to socially distance that many people from one another in order to prevent the spread of the virus.
While a new date for Stone and McCary has yet to be set or revealed (or a location for that matter), one has to imagine that the two are likely practicing social distancing together in their Los Angeles home rather than their New York abode, especially since Saturday Night Live was already on hiatus and has now, like many other TV series, been postponed indefinitely.
