Is it possible to plan a wedding in the midst of Covid-19, surrounded by your loved ones, divine cuisine and endless love? ABSOLUTELY.
Meet our adorable couple, Emily & Matt. The dynamic duo that decided to tie the knot one sweet day in May.
With a glorious wedding originally planned for 250 guests, Emily and Matt had to make the difficult and emotional decision to not only cut the guest list down to five, but to also move ahead without a few special family members present.
Planned beautifully by Events by Tricia, they put all the essential details into place, contacted the necessary wedding professionals and moved full speed ahead to their small but exquisite wedding day.
We couldn’t possibly imagine how challenging this time must have been for both them and their families, but with God’s grace they kept positive, light hearted and ready to become man and wife, and that they did! They focused on the marriage rather than the wedding and we were so happy to hear, because at the end of the day, that is what matters most.
The full wedding team was so touched by Emily and Matt’s micro-wedding experience. They all knew that it would have been different and nerve-wracking since it was a bit new to them all, but by the end of the day they were blown away by the couple’s joy and love. As the wedding videographer Rink Films told us, “because of the couple’s cool attitude and positive demeanor all throughout, it made us feel comfortable and at ease on the day, and that made the experience so much nicer”.
With the couple’s kindness and guidance, each wedding professional was given the opportunity to create, design and execute on the day with no questions asked. It was bliss for all of those involved, and we couldn’t respect Emily and Matt more for allowing their team to do what they do best.
As Emily said, “We all needed something beautiful to do…and it is beautiful to be given the opportunity to create”.
Emily darling, we couldn’t agree with you more.
If you’re currently planning your own wedding during this uncertain time, and are feeling overwhelmed, confused and need a little pick me up today, then this video is a must watch. Emily is absolutely incredible, talented and genuinely sweet. We had such a great time chatting with her and her team of wedding professionals, and know that you will enjoy every minute of it.
We covered a great deal in this conversation, from planning your wedding during a pandemic, having to organize a Zoom chat with loved ones abroad, cutting down your guest list quite a bit and much more. So, dive right in for the full chat and be comforted knowing that you are not alone love. There are so many beauties from around the world who have and are currently experiencing the same thing, and are trying to navigate.
The past few months have been incredibly difficult for most, and will continue to be for quite some time, so we encourage you to keep positive, hopeful, and understanding. We promise that we will all celebrate in a BIG way very soon.
Special thank you to the lovely couple for sharing their love story with us, Events by Tricia and to the incredible team of wedding professionals who shared their amazing experiences from Emily and Matt’s wedding day with us. We were so honoured to hear from each of you, and cannot thank you enough for your passion, expertise and love of marriage. You can see more of their work in the Credits below.
