'We saw the need to create a way to hold a safe celebration that was fast and within regulations.'

Miriam, 2nd left, and Luis Eduardo, 2nd right, listen to notary public Alessandra Lapoente during their drive-thru wedding at the registry office in the neighborhood of Santa Cruz, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Thursday, May 28, 2020. On Thursday alone, 15 couples were married at the drive-thru.

Rio de Janeiro state is Brazil’s second hardest-hit state by the pandemic, with nearly 45,000 people infected, according to the official tally. Experts say that is a significant undercount due to lack of testing. There have been almost 5,000 deaths. But the notary in Santa Cruz is the only one that has created a drive-thru, according to Brazil’s national association of civil registrations.

In most cases, a couple had set a date but their ceremony was torpedoed by the pandemic. They prefer to go through with the wedding instead of lingering in limbo, unsure of when a traditional ceremony might be possible.
