Well, long story short, Fiancé and I are getting married on our original date later this week. This day was hard won, with more grief and tears than I’m sure was normal for wedding planning.

It will be nothing like we originally envisioned. We will have only a tenth of our original guest list. My dogs will be included, but our grandparents will not. We will be wearing masks. We will have a tent in my mom’s backyard with homemade food. We will have an overabundance of hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes, disinfectant spray.

And yet… is our wedding not being what we originally envisioned such a bad thing? Is a wedding, at its core, not a celebration of two people committing to only each other, ’til death does them part? No matter how small or how large?

Though current global circumstances have forced us to make choices we never thought we’d have to, we are trying our hardest to still have something special with our MVPs, while remaining safe at the same time. What we wanted isn’t what we’re getting, but we think it’s a good thing.

At the end of the day, I’ll be married to my best friend. And after everything that’s happened this year, it will be enough.

See you on the flip side, friends – as a married woman ❤
