I first bonded with David & Anne over our shared passion for Broadway musicals! I studied theater, and it’s where my love of storytelling began! So I felt right at home when they started reenacting the rap battle from Hamilton, and behind my mask I may or may not have been singing it along with them. It was such a fun wedding celebration, and a great way for them to say their I do’s safely, while putting off the larger party and reception until next year.
They opted for an outdoor tent (with heaters) at a friend’s beautiful home in Atlanta, and had plenty of space for everyone to keep some distance and get lots of fresh air. It was a small crowd, the bridal party, their parents, and me! Friends and family were able to join in via Zoom for both the ceremony and the toasts. I felt honored to be a witness to such a special celebration, and can’t wait to document their reception with them next year! As I headed to my car at the end of the night, the song Seasons of Love from RENT was playing. As I listened (and sang along) to the lyrics, I thought it was the perfect song to end my last wedding of 2020. You could look back on this year and measure it by the number of face masks worn, the lost income, and the stress of it all, or you could measure it by the extra time to reflect on what matters most, to love up on those closest to us and to getting creative with how we connect with friends and family virtually when we can’t be together in person for special occasions. I think measuring it in love is for sure the way to go, and I am so glad David and Anne found a way to do just that! Here are a few of my favorite moments from their day…
David & Anne- Thanks for letting me in the tent where it happened:) So happy for you both! Even having barely known you, it seems obvious you were mean to be together! Can’t wait to celebrate with you again in the New Year! Best Wishes, Bre
