The Quarantined Life of our Bride to Be, Morgan

by | Jun 11, 2020 | Real weddings

Change is inevitable! But who would have ever imagined that in the year 2020, Weddings Dates would have to change too! Life for engaged couples is now full of sheltering in place and long distance wedding planning.  Today, we continue our series on our Real Couple Morgan & Joe who were scheduled to be wed this June in Illinois, but had to be flexible due to the Corona Virus.

My fiancé, Joe and I have been quarantining together down in Georgia during this pandemic since mid-March. Initially, Joe flew down just for the week to attend the NCAA DIII Indoor Track & Field National Meet with me. During his visit, Joe’s employer transitioned to fully remote due to the virus, so he decided to stay with me in Georgia. Now we are both working full-time from my house together. Luckily, the college I work for (Berry College) has the biggest and most beautiful campus in the world – and with campus closed to the public, we have almost 27,000 acres of Frisbee golf, tennis courts, and trails basically to ourselves.  We are blessed to have such a beautiful place and some great weather to enjoy during this crazy time!

Like so many other couples, our wedding originally planned for June 6th has been postponed due to COVID-19. We have re-scheduled our date to this coming September 12th, 2020.  It’s been a difficult time for us losing the picture of what our initial “dream wedding” would be like, but we know “plan B” will end up being just as special to us. Our vendors have been incredibly cooperative, but several were not able to accommodate our change of plans. As a result, we’ve been forced to re-plan our wedding while sheltering in place. Regardless, we will be married, and that is what’s most important. I am so thrilled to be able to marry my incredible fiance in the most beautiful wedding dress from Kathryn’s Bridal! Even through the stress, we have been remaining grateful for all that we have – we have such supportive friends and family, we still have our jobs, and we have each other and our faith through all of this.  We are truly blessed!
