We got married despite the pandemic

Hey all,

I thought I'd post the outcome of our postponed wedding. We decided to get legally married on our front lawn with our officiant and two witnesses, and our immediate family watched from their cars (and neighbours - free entertainment!). We officially postponed our wedding reception for more than a year, but at the end of the day we really wanted to get married. It was still a really special day that we'll never forget. We celebrated with cake from our bakery who made us a smaller version, we picked up takeout from our favourite local restaurant (in our wedding outfits no less), and we facetimed all of our extended family with some drinks. I hope this makes someone smile - I just got some pictures back today Smiley smile

    Congratulations!! It's so heartwarming to see those make the most of a difficult situation. And now you get to celebrate twice! How fun would it be to celebrate on your first anniversary with everyone.

    Absolutely beautiful!! Congratulations! 馃鉂わ笍


    We are supposed to get married August 15th and are wanting to do the same; have a small ceremony this year and then redo the big day with all our guests at a later date! As my fianc茅 is Italian, he has a large immediate family here in town, so we are really hoping the government allows larger public gatherings by August! 馃馃徎

    These are beautiful photos Savannah, congratulations!! So awesome you made your day work. May I ask where you found a marriage license? My wedding isn't until July 25 but since we're within the 90 day period I'm really starting to get antsy about when municipalities will issue marriage licenses again.

    Congrats!! You look awesome. I love the picture with the corona and toilet paper - that was on our to-do list but I totally forgot. I agree, almost everyone was supportive, but you can't make everyone happy. We're going to renew our vows and make them much more personal when we do it again in a year Smiley smile
