TAYLORS, SC (WYFF) - As if wedding days aren't tense enough, a chapel in Greenville County is surrounded by ice, complicating nine weddings scheduled on Valentine's Day.

Skylight Chapel on Groce Meadow Road in Taylors is completely surrounded by ice and snow, including the driveway up to the chapel.

Owner Yvette Ruzicka said they are all "running around like chickens with their heads cut off."

Ruzicka said they have nine ceremonies starting at noon, ending at 7 p.m., and three vow renewals.

She said, "It's Valentine's Day.  We do this every year."

But they don't usually have to deal with ice and snow.

Ruzicka said the driveway is pretty icy, and the parking lot is completely iced over.  She said they are likely going to have to get people to park where they can safely and then shuttle them to the chapel.
