Our wedding reception did not go as planned

Sometimes the very best planning still will not prepare you for trouble! I thought my fiance and I planned our wedding with every detail and issue in mind. All of us knew it was going to be an unusual wedding with social distancing and masks, but we weren’t going to let anything stop the plans for our big afternoon. Our friends and family went into quarantine for more than one weeks before the anniversary, so every one of us could lower almost everyone’s exposure during the ceremony and festivities. I was glad that almost everyone came to the anniversary wearing their masks, and people did not mind sitting far apart during the anniversary. In fact, things were going even better than we expected until the reception started. All of us sat down to breakfast and a few seconds later, the ceiling was in the middle of the dance room. I heard a crack and a pop, and then the entire ceiling, drywall, and pieces of ventilation device came crashing down to the floor, but the pieces of drywall missed the head table by several feet, however my dad jumped up from his seat and started yelling and screaming. The event planner came running into the room with a very surprised look on his face. The entire reception was ruined due to a leak in the ventilation system. All of us had to eat buffet type in an adjacent room and it wasn’t decorated with our beautiful anniversary flowers and ribbons. My fiance and I found out that the ventilation plan was the reason for the crash, and built up condensation causes the ceiling structure to cave. The owner of the venue apologized and refunded all of our money.
