When Covid 19 hit our Country back in March it halted our special events and all wedding celebrations. It became apparent by early May that although all our events were postponed till next year or till this pandemic is safe for all that “love isn’t canceled”.
Our brides and grooms found their own personal way to celebrate their love even if they could not be in a room with 200 of their family and friends to dance and celebrate the night away. It seems as if nothing will stop a couple in love from getting married!
Weddings of under 20 people are happening! We have captured these intimate weddings at family homes in backyards, country clubs, churches and restaurants, and Manhattan apartments with just a couple, their Rabbi and Zoom.
We have seen so many silver linings at this very difficult time. Family pets are now one of the invited guests and make the headcount for these small celebrations also sharing the love and adding a personal touch to the wedding.
Technology has allowed for many more family and friends to share in the couple’s love even though they are not with them and can only share virtual hugs and love. Many family and friends may have not made the celebration before all this craziness and can now carve out a time to sit in front of their computer in the comfort of their home and just enjoy from afar….and show up for you!
Enjoy some of these highlighted moments as we all adapt to this new normal. #loveisntcancelled
