Love in the Time of COVID19

“It was the time when they loved each other best, without hurry or excess, when both were most conscious of and grateful for their incredible victories over adversity.”

Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera


The inescapable truth surrounding 2020 weddings is many of them will look different from what was originally planned. Couples have pivoted from having family and friends gather together to watch the exchange of forever’s in person, to digital congregations of eyes watching from their screens in their own homes. Some couples have chosen to entirely postpone their big day, while others obliged to physical distancing practices and had incredibly intimate ceremonies. No matter the path chosen, the difficulty of quick adjustments is an added stress during an already tense time.

It is important to remember however, that during this time of disappointment from changed or cancelled plans, love remains constant. Love is not cancelled and will continue to be the light that lifts you up. While formal celebrations of love have been put on hold for the time being, it doesn’t mean love cannot still be celebrated. The simplest way is by telling someone–a partner, a parent, a sibling, a friend, anyone who holds a place in your heart, “I love you”. Showing your love doesn’t always mean speaking your love. Cook your special someone a meal. Write a thoughtful note and send it. Be an active listener while they share about their day. These gestures allow love to fully bloom.

We continue to think about the time when we will be able to reconnect in person, gather together to celebrate love and the unifying of two hearts in our quaint Evans Memorial Chapel. We miss showing you the beautiful space and being a part of your special day. Until the moment arrives when we can celebrate in person, let us celebrate you from afar! Thank you for continuing to call and inquire. Thank you for your continued support on our social media pages. Thank you for keeping love alive!


See you soon!
