A very COVID wedding

Oh quarantine. So many curve balls you threw me.

My now husband and I got engaged in June 2019, and decided on October 2020 as the perfect date for our wedding. Even in March when everything locked down, October seemed like that was so far away and COVID would be done by then! NOPE.

So we decided in September that we probably shouldn’t risk the lives of all our friends and loved ones. We told everyone that we were still going to get married, but no one was invited.

We then called our parents and asked if they still wanted to be there as witnesses, and they were very happy to agree. My husband also has a twin, who, along with his partner, has been a part of our quarantine group. This meant we got to have a maid of honor/best man and a total of 5 attendees.

We were able to book our venue for the same time next year to hopefully have a reception with our friends and family.

Luckily, we were able to say our vows and sign the papers and become Mr & Mrs Gonzalez without risking any lives.
