The pandemic gave these two the gift of time; time together. Their careers often have them running in different directions and even in other cities for months at a time, so when the world shut down, these two saw the opportunity to celebrate their love. We met Whitney and Michael just five days before their wedding. What's amazing about planning a wedding on a short timeline is you focus on what really matters, the marriage.
Whitney and Michale's connection is so effortless and genuine; it becomes impossible not to feel their love when you are around them. Their day was filled with the most contagious smiles, even behind their masks. The main focus was the ceremony, which took place nestled under a tree that looked as if it was grown for just this purpose. The couple exchanged personal vows and lots of laughter in front of their parents and a few close friends, not to mention those attending virtually. The best part was that the sun began to set just in time to create the most breathtaking backdrop.
The celebration continued with dinner under the trees surrounded by flowing strands of pictures of the couple made by the groom documenting their entire relationship. A macrame runner lined a slate topped table adorned with colorful flowers and terracotta place cards. A floral crown hugged their one-tiered cake, topped with a monogram of the couple's initials intertwined. And, yes, we now want a floral crown for every cake. The fun continued with a light-hearted cake smash and, of course, some pictures with the bride's Lexus, which has been with her since she was a child. Congratulations, Whitney & Michael!
