Michelle and Stanley were set to have their wedding in May of 2020. Well as you all know 2020 has been one heck of a year…
Covid-19 hit and lots of spring and summer weddings had to be postponed or even cancelled. Michelle and Stanley’s wedding was of course included in that. They made the really difficult decision to postpone their wedding until May of 2021. Planning a wedding for sometimes a whole year in advance is a lot of work. So to have to move it and wait a whole other year is such a bummer. Our hearts are so broken for all the couples that had to change their original wedding plans.
However, Michelle and Stanley decided that they weren’t going to let a pandemic take away their wedding date. The date became so special to them so they couldn’t bare the idea of losing that special connection to May 24, 2020. Soooooo… they made the last minute decision to elope! They booked an AirBnb, hired an officiant and got us to document the day. Although their close friends and family weren’t there to celebrate with them in person, they all gathered on a Zoom call to watch the ceremony live. They even got to see Michelle and Stanley share their first dance together.
The day was bittersweet. It was so so special because it brought the focus of their wedding day to the most important thing… their commitment and love . However, they missed their family deeply. Michelle and Stanley had the best day after all. Despite changed plans and a pandemic! And next year, they’ll be celebrating one year married at their wedding reception, surrounded by all of their loved ones, friends and family.
We are so honored to have been able to capture such a beautiful and intimate wedding elopement ceremony. We are SO excited for round two next year! Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Baguchinksky!
