When Courtney, David, and I first met at their home when planning their wedding we joked that their home was so beautiful and unique that they should just get married there. Little did we know that's exactly what the future had in store!
The reception dinner on their patio reminded me so much of a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, with the entire family gathered around one giant table laughing and making memories that will last forever. Normally at weddings there is a head table for the bridal party and then the parents table and so on, but at this wedding, the bride and groom were surrounded by everyone they love most in the world all at one table!
I know a lot of couples are very upset about having to change their wedding plans due to COVID-19 and rightfully so, it's very stressful. But to be completely honest I think it's made us all stop and look at what is really important in life. I love a big luxurious party, don't get me wrong, but I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in the details that we lose sight of what a wedding day should really be about. The number of guests attending won't change how special of a day it is. Elopements and intimate weddings are just as beautiful and special as a big wedding with hundreds!
