Covid Wedding Planning: Claire + Sam

Real Wedding, Wedding Planning Tips


While some of our couple’s decided to completely postpone, some chose to have a mini celebration this year and a much larger wedding next year! Check out what Claire + Sam chose for a solution during their covid wedding planning.

From Claire – “One thing we ended up loving but didn’t plan on was all of the one-on-one time our families were able to spend with each other. We had a homemade meal together Friday night to kick off the weekend and really enjoyed every moment from there on. The wedding consisted of our parents and siblings, so much smaller and more intimate than anticipated. I loved how involved our families were in the planning of the wedding. From building the arbor to cooking the meal, it was more DIY than we planned but so much fun! Plus, we ended up getting married in my father’s backyard (in my hometown of Rockford, OH), which was beautiful, and it was so comforting to be in a space that I grew up in. We had planned to get married in Sam’s church in Ithaca and we’re sad to change this plan, but we were blessed with perfect weather and ended up loving every moment.”
