COVID19 may have forced Stephanie and Logan to reschedule their dream Kootenay wedding, but these two would not let their marriage be postponed. This spring, when our province announced that large gatherings were forbidden, countless couples saw their wedding plans crumble away before their eyes. Countless hours of hard work & money down the toilet.
After much soul searching, Stephanie and Logan decided that the big party with all of their incredible friends and family could wait, but getting married and officially uniting their beautiful, blended family could not. So they said 'I Do', social-distance-style, in their woodsy backyard, surrounded by just their children & very closest family.
I was touched by Stephanie's insistence that we not 'make a big deal' out of this small elopement, because she felt strongly that she did not want the friends and family who could not be there to feel as if they 'missed out' on anything. Even after everything she and Logan had been through, Stephanie was still only thinking of others. That's just the sort of person that she is.
This beautiful, emotive, tender hearted, and extremely devoted couple is planning a 1 year vow-renewal/wedding celebration for the coming year, and I absolutely cannot wait to be there with them (and all their loved ones!) to toast their love, and the amazing life they are building together properly.
Until then, they have their backyard elopement.
Which (& don't tell Stephanie I said this!) really was pretty freaking special, and utterly perfect in it's own way.
