Jill, Doug, & I originally had an engagement session planned for early April. Sadly, we had to postpone that original session because it fell smack-dab in the midst of the COVID19 crisis of 2020. In the weeks to come, Jill & Doug debated what they should do with their original wedding date-- to postpone, or not to postpone?
Many, many (90%) of my 2020 couples have made the difficult decision to postpone their weddings into 2021. I can't blame them. The thought of getting married without all of your friends and family present, not being able to hug all your guests, or share a busy dance floor, can feel devastating. But a few of my couples have bravely decided to push ahead! To embrace the social distancing limitations and forge forward.
Jill and Doug are one of those couples! They have cut their guest list down from 320 (!!) to less than 50, have changed venues, and basically everything else about their wedding... But the date will not change. Their love will not change. Their marriage will not change.
While I understand completely why any couple would want to postpone (and have made every accommodation possible for my couples who have made this decision) I can't help but tip my hat at the few who have decided that COVID19 will not rob them of their wedding plans. That takes serious guts.
With their wedding date quickly approaching, we decided that it was time to reschedule that engagement session. And what a perfect evening for it! Just the right amount of clouds and overcast set the atmosphere, and gave the session a touch of mood and grit that I so love.
