Love Waits for No Man
Morgan and Trevor Blau got married on August 8, 2020. But this event was not their dream wedding, because Covid prevented them from celebrating with their friends and family. So they had a celebration on their first anniversary. They read “One Year Later” vows, and had a special poem read that was featured in their original event, “How Falling in Love is Like Owning a Dog by Taylor Mali.”
Sadly, their pup who was meant to be the ring bearer passed away before he could fulfill his duties. “We took our “first look” photos with him before the event and used them as details in the wedding/on my bouquet,” said Morgan.
“Honestly, I’ve been telling my friends to get married and have one year later parties too because it was so low stress! I wouldn’t have done anything differently, except maybe not have COVID crash the party! My vendors were amazing and everything was as good as we hoped it would be.”
Despite some disappointment in the postponement process, the day was still a joy according to the couple. “We moved from cocktail hour directly to dinner because everything was small plates and mingling, so we didn’t interrupt the flow of the party. Overall, we just wanted a chill and relaxed environment and it was exactly that!” they said.
This dreamy August event had some other sweet details from the couple, right down to the location. “Our venue fit our love story. Our first date and where we got engaged was a small three-room theatre, and the venue is a renovated one-room theatre!” said Morgan.
Despite all the heartache of having to postpone — twice — Morgan still felt positive about the experience. “Honestly, I’ve been telling my friends to get married and have one year later parties too because it was so low stress! I wouldn’t have done anything differently, except maybe not have COVID crash the party! My vendors were amazing and everything was as good as we hoped it would be.”
Morgan used Baby Eucalyptus foliage, Silver Dollar Eucalyptus greenery, and Dusty Miller to fill out her arrangements. She also had Escimo Roses, White Carnation flowers, and White Ranunculus flowers. The florals turned out incredible, and it’s one of my favorite events I’ve ever seen.
If you get married in one year and have a party the next, or even if your party is just you and your spouse having drinks and a water balloon fight, your love story is beautiful and we so enjoy celebrating with you.
