Clearing the way for their dream wedding ceremony

A Framingham couple shoveled about a dozen driveways Sunday to earn money for their upcoming nuptials.

Weddings can be expensive, but one Framingham couple found a creative way to fund their dreams.

Malayna Johnson Knox and Michael Knox have been doing odd jobs to add money to their dream wedding account, and lately that includes shoveling, according to NBC 10 Boston.

Thanks to the recent blizzard, business was booming over the weekend.

“The snow storm is a coming! My fiancé and I are trying to make some extra moulah to save for our wedding so we are offering to shovel drive ways again this storm!,” Johnson posted on Facebook, according to NBC10 Boston. “$50 a drive! We will come do your driveway, walkway and steps! As well as salt!”


According to the TV station, the couple shoveled from about 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Later Malayna posted, “I’m so sore, I wish I had a hot tub or even a bathtub I could fit in.”

Malayna and Michael actually tied the knot in a small ceremony in October, but are saving for a wedding of their dreams next summer, according to WBZ-TV.

Because of restrictions, Michael’s parents, who are from England, couldn’t make it to the ceremony, NBC10 reported.

So the couple started saving for another ceremony, to mark the occasion.

“It has been a very difficult long journey for us, so, this is kind of like that celebration of everything we have gone through,” Johnson told the station.
