It’s some crazy times we are in right now, and some weddings have been postponed or look a lot different than couples originally thought they would. Downsized guest lists, taped off aisles, and masks are not something most brides picture when they think of their weddings but coronavirus and 2020 had some twists and turns laid out for this year’s brides.
Amanda and Isaac had multiple plans laid out for their day and were forced to change them out left and right as things kept fluctuating, but they took it all with stride. Their wedding was beautiful, filled with love, fun, happy tears, and laughter. My favorite moments included Isaac’s reaction to seeing Amanda at the first look, getting to know both incredible families, Isaac’s tear-jerking speech about appreciating all four of his grandparents being able to attend (ya’ll know that it close to my heart), the surprise dances with the parents, and the sun peeking back out from the clouds just for us at sunset.
One of my favorite touches was Amanda’s mom refused to let the reception be off paper plates, so with some creative thinking they called up family and friends and everyone pulled their china together. With each setting was the story of the china and how it came to be apart of this amazing wedding. Such a great and personal touch that I hope other brides use in the future!
Take a second from the chaos of what is going on in the world right now and be swept up in Isaac and Amanda’s wedding day like I was.
