Weddings are always monumental affairs, but the events of the last year added even more obstacles for brides, grooms and planners to surmount and made the unforgettable day even more memorable for couples and guests. In a year rife with challenges and hardships, love was still blossoming and commitments were solidified all across the city. We chatted with local wedding planners about three such momentous occasions: a wedding that took place just before the global pandemic, one that happened right in the middle of it and one on the tail end of it. Regardless of the time of year, scale of the event or number of guests, these planners and couples proved resilient and resourceful, and the resulting celebrations were full of joy, beauty and romance. Join us in reliving these three magical nuptials, and raise a glass to the newlyweds.
