A Change In Plans
Reality has hit our wedding plans.
We really tried to hold on as long as we could. Then we decided we'd do a very small wedding on their planned date, and a big reception in August.
However, our governor has extended our county's shelter at home plan until April 30th. That was kind of the last straw. Now we can't use our church, or our pastor until after that date. And that is unless they extend it again! Yikes!
We're looking at dates that work in May. It will still be a small gathering, we could even do it here potentially. We're planning the larger reception at our original venue, with everyone wearing their wedding clothes, etc. I think we'll be celebrating many things at that reception!
She goes this week to pick up her dress from the seamstress, they are working on dates with their photographer, I'll be able to order flowers again by the end of the month. So many details, and everyone affected by this virus.
We had tears last night. We fought to keep their original date! As the virus hit, and requests came in to stay out of large groups, we made changes to plans, but we kept saying, "But, we're having a wedding on the 25th!" That last bit of hope was crush when the shelter in place until the end of April was extended.
We are still trusting God's goodness and His love for us all. Weston and Rachel know that even though they don't understand the why, He does! They know this is part of their life story that God is writing.
March seemed so long this year. We're hoping the month of April goes by much quicker!
Praying for good health and strength for us all!
