The best way to describe the past few months is simply surreal. Aside from the long-term impact on our day-to-day life (ie face masks as a staple accessory when leaving the house), it's crazy to be posting this from the couch today rather than running around overseeing installs for the weddings that were to take place this Memorial Day Weekend. It's strange to a) not be at a clients' wedding on Memorial Day Weekend for the first time in 10 years and b) know that it'll still be a while until we see all the months spent designing, creating, and planning with our spring and summer clients come to life.
We completely understand our couples' disappointment in having to postpone their celebrations. But we've also been super inspired to see so many of them moving forward with intimate ceremonies (either on their original date or the very near future), while rescheduling the bigger parties to 2021. These small events have been a pleasure to plan, with many of the original vendors still participating with social distance policies in place (e.g. safe shooting distance for the photog, no contact bouquet drop off) and guests getting to watch via zoom.
As we continue to follow the pandemic updates, we are having very open and honest conversations with our vendor partners and clients about what the future of events looks like. We know things are constantly changing, and we're here to make sure you still get to celebrate - whether an intimate vow ceremony, a virtual experience, or an event at a later date.
The future is uncertain but celebrating shouldn't be.
We want to give a shoutout to J+J, who were scheduled to get married at Marin Art + Garden Center on May 23rd, 2020 and S+J, who were scheduled to get married at the Pearl on May 24th, 2020. We promise to celebrate you all extra hard on the new dates.
