Wedding photography in the age of Coronavirus is a dicey proposition. Mostly, it’s just not happening. Many couples are choosing to reschedule dates optimistically for the fall. However, there are some couples that are choosing to have a socially responsible, tiny wedding. They just want to be married and that is the important part.
Rebecca and Leif sized their wedding down from over 200 to about ten. They moved it from a fancy venue to the machine shed on the farm. The interesting thing is stripping down the plan they worked so hard to cobble together didn’t fundamentally change a thing. This wedding was all about who Rebecca and Lief are to their core.
Leif’s mom is one of the owner’s of Premiere Couture, the finest bridal salon in the region and old friends of our’s. His dad is a farmer. Lief’s sister teased Rebecca about “appreciating Lief’s love of agriculture, even if she is a horse person.” Every aspect of this wedding reflected what has made this couple who they are.
The bonus was the drive-thru receiving line that formed after the ceremony. To Rebecca and Leif’s delight, many of their guests that they had been forced to dis-invite drove up right after the ceremony to congratulate the new couple. Respecting social distancing guidelines, they stayed in their cars and just took a moment to send their well-wishes before driving off. It was an inspiring reminder that no matter the circumstances people find a way to support each other.
This wasn’t the wedding Rebecca and Leif initially envisioned. But the love they felt this day was everything they imagined.
