Hello all of our beautiful Sparrow readers,
We are currently living in a very unique time in history. In March of 2020, an executive order throughout the country for every person to “Shelter in Place”. This order closed businesses, cancelled outings, meetings, and caused many weddings to be put on hold. Covid-19 has affected every life all over the whole world. As the world paused, many brides and grooms made painful decisions to postpone wedding festivities from their spring, summer dates to later in 2020 or early 2021. But through this uncharted time, we have seen beautiful glimpses of what true love is made of!
We have been blown away by the beauty of our client’s love stories. Even though client’s have moved their wedding celebration dates, they haven’t given up on getting married. We have seen brides and grooms get married right in their living rooms and backyards! Nothing is going to stop them from starting their FOREVER! Being fairytale story-tellers, we are determined to share true-love’s fairytale stories!
We are encouraging all brides and grooms to keep telling their stories, keep sharing love, and remember that #LOVEISNTCANCELLED! If you have to postpone your wedding, reach out to us! We want to tell your love story!
*As a disclaimer, we were not in attendance to any of our client’s COVID-Weddings. We only feel that their stories deserve to be shared and told. Personal photos were provided by the clients. Thank you for allowing us to share such a special moment in history. We can’t wait to photograph weddings when we are able!
Below is the story of Vince & Leigh, and the beginning to their fairytale wedding…
From the Bride (Leigh):
April 19, 2020 was supposed to be our wedding day! But the COVID-19 lockdown came on March 19 and everything was postponed, including our wedding. We were so devastated to have to postpone our wedding celebration, but we were determined to have our planned wedding day be special despite the situation.
On the morning of April 19, 2020 we were in line at Sam’s Club for disinfectant wipes. We couldn’t believe we actually found some! We met at Sam’s and basically had our “first look.” It was so funny to have a special moment at a store! After our Sam’s trip, we went home to celebrate our “COVID wedding day.” We took a few moments to get ready. Then, I walked down the staircase wearing a veil that I received during my bachelorette. I carried a mini bouquet of flowers that my mom made that morning. I walked down to my groom waiting at the end of the aisle… or should I say, staircase. Haha! We had a beautiful moment together with our families. We laughed and cried and were so grateful to celebrate such a beautiful moment on our planned wedding day!
Afterward, we had an intimate dinner with our family. Vincent prepared the dinner and I made chocolate covered strawberries. We also received some wonderful desserts from family and friends. My mom ordered us a 2-tier cake and she beautifully decorated it with flowers. April 19, 2020 was a happy day. I’m grateful that we have our family. I’m grateful that we have each other. It’s all we need and it’s enough. Our love is not cancelled, and it will never be. ♥️♥️♥️ Thank you to everyone who is reading our story!
