COVID-19 has helped us all realize what is most important to us. An elopement or microwedding is not less than a venue wedding. In fact, it’s more. It’s more intimate and it’s most definitely about those getting married.. These two lovely people allowed me to preside at their wedding in an idyllic spot. While both partners have very busy academic and professional schedules, it was easy to carve out time for this wedding and zoom pre-marital sessions. This was before I had figured socially distanced childcare out and they allowed my children to sit at a nearby park bench during the wedding.
