Jennifer and Hannah had their first date 6 years to the day before their wedding date. The couple met on OkCupid, and their first date consisted of grabbing a coffee and then going bowling. The wedding date in March was planned for a venue, and with more family and friends in attendance, and this was a date meaningful to them. There was no changing it. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, prior to lockdown orders, the couple opted to have a tiny celebration in their back yard with only the closest loved ones who could travel to them. Plenty of sanitizer on hand. Enjoy this sweet intimate backyard LGBT wedding.
The wedding was on a lovely Sunday afternoon, and I received the call from Jennifer the day before. The photographer they hired backed out due to virus concerns. I felt ok with it because the couple had a system in place to keep it outside and I avoid close proximity, all was good. It was outside, sanitizer was on hand, and it was pre-lockdown. There weren’t many people which minimized the risk, and I didn’t even know I would be able to work that day. They were nice people too, so it worked out perfectly.
The cake cutting was full of emotion and humor. It was also inspiring to see that there was so much love in their house that was all personalized to them. When the dust settles, the couple plans on hosting a reception to enjoy guests that couldn’t make it. Onward to a great future and better times ahead.
I hope you enjoyed this sweet backyard LGBT wedding with Hannah and Jennifer, as much as I did. Congratulations both of you, and I hope to catch up with you when times are brighter for all of us. Thank you for letting me be your storyteller.
