The couple originally intended to get married in Tucson, AZ, at a beautiful venue called The Barn at Tanque Verde Ranch. With over 175 guests and a large bridal party, it was heartbreaking when less than a week before the ceremony, Arizona enacted a shelter-in-place order that shut down any events with more than 10 people. They also had to cancel their honeymoon in Bali due to flight and hotel restrictions.
After a year of planning, the state mandated order created mixed emotions. As a couple not used to being the center of attention, a smaller, more intimate wedding was what they had originally wanted. Though upsetting that their best friends and some family would be unable to attend, ultimately, it was the couple’s commitment to one another that lead to the decision to proceed on a smaller scale.
