Our bride, Johnna, is a planner who loves to organize details to execute her vision. But when a global pandemic hits, plans are forced to change. Pete and Johnna were adamant the one thing that wouldn’t change would be their October date. Everything else was up for grabs. Due to Covid Restrictions, they relocated their celebration to beautiful Hobnob Farms—for an outdoor wedding. There’s nowhere more beautiful than North Carolina in the fall and the weather cooperated to provide the most incredible backdrop for this couple.
Many accommodations were made to provide a safe environment for their guests. At arrival, each was provided with a packet containing a specially made face mask, an overview of the safety precautions and individual hand sanitizers made by the bride herself. Guests were seated in small pods to maintain socially distancing. Individual charcuterie boxes were passed out at cocktail hour. And every effort was made by the caterers to provide not only a delicious meal, but a safe dining experience for all.
Pete is Irish, so they wanted his heritage to have a presence. His family tartan was used in the bowties and matching masks for the groomsmen as well as in the color scheme for Johnna’s ladies. Each of the table capes at the reception was dressed with a bit of the Irish plaid as well. And to top it all off, the guest waved Irish wedding wands as the Bagpiper led the recessional of the couple and wedding party in joyful celebration.
