A small wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston. Coordinated by Gabrielle Stone Event Planning.
Jessica and Jeff were supposed to have a large wedding. It would happen at one of Boston’s most popular venues, the Boston Public Library, and they booked it far in advance. Then COVID19 happened. With determination and love, they kept their original fall wedding date and instead had their wedding with just 25 of their closest family members and friends.
One thing I’ve learned during this pandemic is that where there is a will to be married, there is a way. I’ve been touched by how people are finding ways to make life work and safe ways of celebrating together. Quarantining together this spring in a family home on the Cape, J&J decided to get married. They contacted me over the summer and said that their Cape Cod wedding would happen in the fall. They worked out dates with family and key vendors, and decided on a backyard wedding at the end of September.
Kayla and Peter’s wedding was originally going to take place at Blithewold Mansion in Rhode Island. By mid-spring, we knew that the big party would have to be put on hold. However they still wanted to be married in 2020 and to be able to share that moment with their immediate family and closest friends.
Alanna and Joey had planned on a big, 200-person wedding in Seattle. Their plans changed with the COVID19 pandemic, and they instead ended up having a 10-person wedding in the city where they met: Boston. Their wedding day was something of an adventure – with portraits around North End, pizza on the street, and one of the most gorgeous sunsets….
Like so many 2020 couples, their wedding plans took an unexpected turn because of the COVID19 pandemic. When they originally booked me for their Boston Public Library wedding, little did we know that we would soon be in the middle of a history-making moment in time.
