While the world is a mess and this pandemic rages on, it is a comforting feeling to know that love is soldiers on. This past Saturday I had the honor of photographing J & R’s intimate backyard wedding at a friend’s private home in Medina. Leading up to this day there were many curveballs thrown at this lovely couple and their incredible planning team.  Restrictions were enforced and then lifted, only to be cracked down upon once again. No one said planning a wedding during a pandemic was going to be easy. However, Andrea and the team at Pink Blossom Events took every change in stride and I am so grateful that during these unprecedented times I’m able to work with such talented, organized, and patient vendors.  It is also wonderful to have couples who care about the safety of their guests enough to have custom wedding masks on hand, pre-spaced and labeled ceremony seating for each guest, and socially distanced dining. Hearing about so many people trying to skirt the rules, it was very comforting to see how seriously these two, and their planning team embraced all safety precautions. Those who lived/quarantined together sat together, distanced and masked from other families when not able to keep six feet between them.  I gotta say, this wedding season has not been easy for anyone, but seeing the smiles and feeling the joy from this day reminds me over and over again why I appreciate my job so much. This was an incredible celebration of love that I won’t soon forget. xx, Amy
