As if wedding planning wasn't already stressful enough, now you have an unpredictable pandemic to add to the process. These last two years have been an emotional roller coaster. We understand. We're right there with you.
We are hopeful that as vaccinations increase things will continue to resume "a new state of normal". The honest truth is that no one knows what will happen and it is best to be prepared for "just in case".
Please remember that just because a pandemic might end up changing some of your original wedding plans, that it doesn’t change the fact that you can still have a beautiful and wonderful wedding day! I understand how disappointing a prospect it is to consider that your wedding might not take place as you had originally hoped. It is understandably disheartening that you might have to consider downsizing your guest list or that you may need to consider postponing to a later date.
It is truly out of anyone’s control, and that is so frustrating. Just remember that some changes to your original wedding plan does not change the love that you and your significant other have for one another and the love that you and your family and friends have to share about your wedding. And it most certainly does not mean that you can’t have a very special, memorable, and gorgeous wedding. There is just a possibility that it might be more intimate or take place later than you had originally planned.
This situation is still constantly evolving and there are many unknowns, but we want to assure you that we are in this together and we will work through this together. We are committed to doing the very best we can to help you through this difficult situation.
The safety of you, your guests, vendors, as well as our community is of the greatest importance to our small, family-operated business.
Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions. We are here to help you. Please understand that we may take a little longer than normal to respond to calls, texts, and emails due to the high volume of questions and the complicated nature of this evolving situation but know that you and your wedding are of utmost importance.
Wishing you and your family all the best during this challenging time. Stay safe!
