If you told me on New Year’s Eve in 2019 that the following year we’d be in the midst of a pandemic and that legally no one could be even be out to celebrate the new year I’d have laughed in your face. It’s wild how much changed so quickly. It was especially ironic for this wedding because they were referred to me by a past client, Annalise, who also got married on New Year’s Eve, and was a bridesmaid for this wedding.
Most of my November and December weddings postponed to the following year but due to various reasons Meaghan and Danny went ahead with their wedding that was during some of the strictest rules of any weddings during the pandemic so far. Beyond the rules about gatherings – distance rules, dining rules, no dance floor (save for the special dances) there was also a curfew of 9PM. It was very, very strange to be home and unwinding before midnight struck!
Meaghan and Danny handled all of the restrictions with grace and still had such a fun wedding despite all of it! Their guests did too – I heard one woman remark that it was one of the best weddings she’s been to because you always want to talk to the people you’re seeing that you rarely get to see but between the dancing and the loud music it’s often very hard to catch up with people. She had a point and everyone definitely seemed to be leaning into the change and visiting with each other and embracing the new world we live in.
I also LOVE they were able to have their adorable doggo meet us for some photos!
Thank you both so much for trusting me to capture your day!
