Bekah and Martin originally planned a big celebration in May with their family and friends. Like all couples getting married in 2020, their plans changed dramatically when COVID-19 entered the scene. Reworking their original plan, they were able to celebrate with their immediate family and a few friends. They were married in Bekah’s home church in Minneapolis and then celebrated in her parent’s backyard. While it wasn’t what they expected when they were planning this winter, it was a perfect day full of happy moments.
Over 150 people joined the Zoom meeting to watch them be married at church. Afterwards, Bekah and Martin left church only to be greeted by over twenty friends who were social-distancing and cheering like crazy in the church parking lot. One car queued up the song that was going to be for their first dance, and they danced in the middle of the parking lot as their friends and family watched. It was so sweet.
At the end of the day, these two wanted to get married despite the circumstances. Their family and friends pulled together to make it a truly memorable wedding day. Congratulations to this couple, who didn’t let any of the stress of planning a COVID-era wedding put a damper on their day!
