This past Tuesday, my husband and I
watched our daughter and fiance
exchange personally written vows
before saying, “I do.”
Their words were eloquent
and brought tears to our eyes.
The uniqueness of this ceremony
was the Zoom factor!
They have been together for 9 years
and engaged for almost 2.
Then came Covid-19 to disrupt everything.
Original plans had to be canceled,
and they decided to wait
for when large gatherings
could resume again.
After 3 months and many conversations,
they reached the same conclusion:
they just wanted to be married.
So, pressing pause for months
or even another year seemed senseless.
With the blessings of family and friends,
they pulled off a Zoom wedding
The ceremony was beautiful
and we joined in
with no technological glitches.
We couldn’t be happier.
Was it ideal?
No, but they are now Mr. & Mrs.
and that’s what matters most.
When we get the green light
to throw a party, there will be
a big reception and replay
of their wedding vows.
So we can’t wait for that
It was refreshing to celebrate such a joyful occasion that gave us reason to “clink our glasses” and something positive to smile about.
Steph and Ryan!
We love you!
