Just a delay, not a disappointment

Jordan and Colby chose May 2, 2020 as their wedding date, but like so many other couples right now, they decided to delay their event.

Jordan says

Today would have been our wedding day, the day we had invested so much time, effort and planning into, just to have it hijacked by ‘Rona- and we are ok with that! Only 45 days before our wedding, we made the decision to postpone until August and I am so glad we did. We knew we wanted to share our special day with our families and friends, so the decision came relatively easy.  Naturally, it was disappointing to see the countdown increase by more than 100 days, but we knew it had to be done to keep our guests safe. 

Since the majority of our wedding was already planned at that point, we decided to take a little wedding planning hiatus. In that time, we made a move from our small apartment into our first home together! We have taken this time to be thankful for all that we have and to take advantage of the extra time we have together. 

At the end of the day, we know postponing our wedding has not changed anything except our date; the end result will still be the same. During this time, it is more important than ever to focus on the positives rather than dwell on the things we cannot fix. Waiting three more months, or however long, to marry your soulmate is nothing compared to the lifetime of happiness that will follow!

Jordan and Colby will be married on August 22, 2020 at the Tybee Island Wedding Chapel surrounded by their friends and family... at a safe distance, of course!

Only 112 days to go!
