I don’t think ‘global pandemic’ was on anyone’s mind when they were planning their weddings for 2020. Everyone was pretty much faced with postponing indefinitely, or making the best of a bad situation by adapting their plans into whatever was allowed on their particular day.
Nick & Nicky postponed their reception to next year and kept their original date by improvising a location (having family who own a farm pays off!), and cutting their guest list to immediate family only.
It’s sad to see so many plans be derailed due to COVID-19, but I know a lot of couples end up really enjoying the more stripped down, simpler wedding.
