We met 5 years ago through mutual friends at their 4th of July bbq. After buying a house, getting engaged and planning our dream wedding, covid got in the way.
I am a Registered Nurse in NY and my husband is a correctional officer in NYC. We both worked through the pandemic and had to postpone our date 3 times. Then our original venue was not able to hold our event so 3 weeks prior to our wedding we had to change plans again.
We got married in our church, took pictures in the nature preserve next to our home and then had our family and friends to our backyard for a celebration. Though the journey was hard it ended up being the perfect day and we learned that love conquers all. It’s not about what you have, but who you have surrounding you.
