We got married despite the pandemic

Megan, on April 24, 2020 at 13:45 Posted in Just married 15 50

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

    Congratulations! We were supposed to be married May 23rd, after finally finding a municipality still offering licenses we rolled with our luck and too decided to do a small ceremony at home with our witnesses and minister, parents from a distance and family joining via video chat! It was definitely not our ideal plan, but we鈥檙e happy to atleast legally be married! We postponed our wedding from May to August, hoping restrictions will be lifted enough for us to have our small celebration with family and friends, if not next plan C lol. Here鈥檚 some pictures from our day! We got married despite the pandemic 8

    Congratulations!!

    Our Wedding was supposed to be May 30th and we are debating the option of a small legal ceremony to keep our original picked date with just us our officiant and witnesses to sign. And next year we have booked to have our wedding and still a ceremony which would be like a vow renewal but still have the ceremony everyone we want there can be there for. I don't currently have my wedding dress so we are even thinking keeping our wedding outfits all for the day in 2021.

    That鈥檚 amazing Megan! We did the same thing on April 18th and I was afraid that I鈥檇 have regrets not waiting but I鈥檓 so happy we went ahead with it. 99% of people were happy for us and we had two people who expressed their frustrations that we got married without them there but these were family members that we are not even close with. It hurt at first but I just remind myself that their frustrations aren鈥檛 relevant in my marriage. Those people will get to see us renew our vows next April 17th anyways.

    The photos are beautiful and you both look flawless! Congrats fellow wife!! 馃帀馃グ馃

    Thank you so much for sharing! Our wedding is in August and my fianc茅 and I have been struggling with the idea of having a small ceremony on our original date and a reception at a later time, but seeing your pictures and just how truly beautiful a small ceremony can be has really helped us! Thank you 鉂わ笍
