The perfectly imperfect wedding date

Remembering your perfectly imperfect wedding date.

A note to all of the beautiful couples.

I cannot imagine this. How hard it must be to have to delay the beginning you’ve been so sure of for so long.

I know how much you planned. I know how stressed you’ve been, I can almost feel the absolute gut-turning excitement of planning that day. The one that marks the start of the life you’ve always imagined for yourself. I know that this is hard.

And all of a sudden, for reasons out of your control, it’s… paused. And I guess the scarier part is, we aren’t certain when it will be possible to throw the celebration that your love deserves.

Because a love this big can not be tamed by 6 feet distances and hug-less interactions. It needs to be able to be felt between every person in the room. For everyone there, has had a hand in making the both of you who you are today.

So, what I am asking you to do today is not going to be easy. It’s going to be hard, and it’s not going to feel fair. Because it isn’t. I wish more than anything, your plan wasn’t disrupted. I wish more than anything that your plans worked out just as easily as the love you have for one another. And even though this is hard, it is still such a precious time. It is still YOUR time.

And I am begging you, don’t spend all of your time wishing you can control things that you cannot, wasting away the moments that you should be remembering.

All the quarantine movie marathons. The work from home fiascos. The tears shed. The laughs bellowed.

All of it. Every single moment.

Cherish this. Remember this.

Pride yourselves on powering through even in the midst of a global crisis, and loving each other fiercely any way.

I know this is hard. But, thank you for showing us that we can do hard things.
