This corona wedding is filled to the brim with joy and vibrant citrusy hues, and our hearts are overflowing with happiness at the sight of it! Virginia always wanted an intimate, non-traditional wedding, but throughout wedding planning her heart began to love the idea of a big, elaborate celebration. However, COVID-19 had other plans! With ever-changing unknowns and wanting to keep all of their guests safe, Virginia and Scott decided to have an intimate ceremony in the chapel of the church they were originally planning to get married in. After their ceremony, the couple went outdoors to see all of their family and friends that couldn’t be physically present in a car parade, where they could still see the couple and wish them nothing but the best in their life together ahead! Flora + Fauna’s bright and vibrant florals in citrusy hues of peach, buttercup yellow and blush pink bring in a perfect pop of color and help tie together all the joy and happy vibes of this celebration. At the end of the day, corona seemed to give Virginia and Scott the wedding they always wanted in the most unexpected, unique way that they wouldn’t change for the world. Scroll to see all the joy and vibrant citrusy hues of this day captured by Caroline Fontenot. Cheers to this corona couple!

From the bride: “To be honest, a large, traditional wedding had never been my dream, but it had snowballed into that during the wedding planning process. In March, it became apparent that our plans would need to change in light of COVID-19. After surveying our options, we decided the safest thing to do was to postpone the reception, however, we still wanted to find a way to get married in May and start our life together. The next two months were full of attempts to make decisions amongst so many ever-changing unknowns. At the end of the day, we decided the most important thing for us was to include as many of our loved ones as possible. While only our immediate families would attend the ceremony, we moved it to the larger sanctuary so that the church could livestream it for all the people we wished could be there. I got ready with my mom and sister and Zoomed with friends before walking down the aisle. The guests from Houston were invited to a car parade at the church, and many watched the ceremony from their phones in the parking lot so they could drive by after. And that evening, we had a small dinner with just our families, a sweet reunion after two months apart. In the end, even though it was so far from what we planned originally, our wedding was the most joyful celebration and reprieve from the fears and sadness of the pandemic. And ironically, it was kind of the intimate, non-traditional wedding I had always wanted!”
