Hannah and Lee were planning the wedding of their dreams, and then COVID-19 hit.  They had made most of the important decisions before quarantine (venue, dress, caterer, DJ, rentals), and hoped that things would improve so that they could continue with the original plan and date of September 6th. In July, they realized that things may not be back to “normal” by then, and also were informed by their venue that there was a state mandate in place for guest count allowance for weddings set at twenty-five. The couple wanted to get married on the scheduled date no matter what, but also didn’t want to cut the original guest list, so they started discussing the options. How do you choose to proceed with your big day, and still have it be special? After careful consideration, the couple decided to forego their rehearsal dinner, and instead have that small group of family and closest friends attend an intimate ceremony and reception at the McConnell House. Their original venue allowed them to reschedule to a date next year, where they can have a big reception and everyone can safely celebrate together in a large group.  Even though they had to pivot, both the bride and the groom said, “It turned out to be the most special day ever! We were able to truly enjoy the moment, and it will definitely be a day to remember. We can’t wait to celebrate with everyone next year! Who else gets to have two wedding parties?!  It’s the best of both worlds!”
