Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have seen an influx of micro-weddings, elopements and small intimate weddings over the past few months, and to be honest, we’ve been overjoyed.
With so many couples anxious about their initial plans, and unsure about what the “new normal” will mean for their wedding, some have opted to unfortunately cancel altogether, and this has been so challenging for both them and the wedding industry.
Truthfully, we have grown so accustom to creating magic with all of our beautiful couples, and as such have developed a bit of confidence and comfort in dreaming, designing and executing beautiful events.
And we here to say love…THAT will never change.
No matter the circumstance, size or style…love will always win. You can still have the day that you have always dreamed of, and our featured couple today believed in this wholeheartedly.
As Javier told us, “don’t let this pandemic control every aspect of your life. Be safe and practice social distancing of course, but don’t let it hinder you. If you have plans, go for it!”
Javier, we stand by your statement 100%.
After having planned a destination wedding in Puerto Rico with about 100 guests for May 2020, Carol and Javier had to adjust their plans a bit thanks to the pandemic. Instead, they opted for an intimate beach wedding surrounded by just a few socially distanced friends, their destination wedding planner and photographer, and Carol’s parents on Zoom.
As unconventional as this seemed, it turned out to be one of the best days of their lives, and one that they are certain they will never forget. Their friends travelled for miles to surprise them, their wedding planner travelled for hours to ensure that everything ran smoothly, and the brother of the lovely bride walked her down the beautiful aisle to say “I do” to the love of her life.
It doesn’t get better than that.
We laughed, cried, and even got emotional during our interview with this darling couple, and cannot wait for you to experience the same.
Special thank you to Carol and Javier for sharing their amazing love story with us, and to Lifetime Events by Jacqueline for sharing her sweet couple with us!
