Memoirs of a COVID Ceremony
This is a memoir of a COVID ceremony. The unimaginable happened. The call. The notice. No wedding.
For some, when you are put on the line, it is time to germinate ideas and make it work. Erica and Phil wanted to keep their date of April 11, 2020. It was their date and they were going to keep it. They started thinking about what this would look like. A ceremony during COVID-19 with no venue, no florist, no cake or caterer, and without their guests. They didn’t want to ask their loved ones to be unsafe due to the COVID virus or that they were making wrong choices. Though this was the hardest part because they wanted to be surrounded by their family and guests, they would just have a reception later. Erica and Phil were still so happy to have their flower girl and ring bearer, their dogs, at the ceremony.
The Decision to have a COVID ceremony
Erica and Phil were ready to not lose their moment and be creative, germinate ideas and make it work. Erica found beautiful pink roses for her bouquet. Phil expedited his tux keeping his fingers crossed that it would fit. They set up a live stream for their guests and they were ready to be married.
There is Hope if you are thinking of having a ceremony too!
During a time when you are surrounded by uncertainty, it is so rewarding to know that you can get married. You can tell the person that you love so much that you are ready to spend your life with them. They look forward to a July reception at The Ivory Room in Columbus, Ohio where they will be able to celebrate with everyone.
