Brianna and Aaron are the most effortlessly cool couple that I have ever met. We started the wedding planning process in January 2019 and their original wedding date was March 22nd 2020. Everything shut down due to COVID about 10 days before their wedding and we truly didn’t know what to do. Ultimately, we decided to postpone to November 1st 2020, but on March 22nd we had a small, Jewish ceremony outdoors, at Lillian Webb Park in Norcross. Only their immediate family attended, but the Rabbi, photographer, florist and myself still came together to make this possible. It was beautiful and when the world was truly upside down, we came together to witness their love, in a safe way.

Their vision for the wedding was modern, romantic, industrial. They wanted it to be very much focused on fun. They described the actual day as “modern, COVID-chic, minimal and exactly what they envisioned (minus the face masks and reduced guest list). It was relaxed, easy and fun. For being in the middle of a very stressful time, everyone seemed very at ease and safe thanks to all the precautions that we and our vendors took”. Their favorite parts were the florals, greenery, band and food. While face masks were not part of the original vision, they felt they were also a nice touch to remember the hard times. Brianna and Aaron wanted to set such a good example for guests that they wore their face masks almost the entire time, even during the ceremony. They are both in healthcare and wanted to lead by example.

 

Aesthetically, hanging greenery was important, the use of the venue’s blank slate gallery walls, a custom neon sign, copper touches and a band with a Motown vibe. Due to COVID, we ended up having a family style dinner, French 75 was their signature cocktail, we incorporated their dog “Georgia” on the cocktail napkins and bar signage and their wedding cake was shipped from MilkBar in NYC.

 

It was Jewish wedding, before the ceremony we had a Tisch and Bedeken, which resulted in dancing and singing. We also had a ketubah signing, HaMotzi (blessing over bread) and fun 10 minute Horah dancing.
