Katrina and Stephen got married a few months into the pandemic with just their immediate families present, while their extended family and friends watched over Zoom video. (See blog post here: https://www.deborahcoleman.com/weddings/katrina-stephen/.) It wasn’t the wedding of their dreams, but they counted their blessings and made plans to host a wedding reception exactly one year later.
In the 365 days that followed, the world has and/or hasn’t changed depending on how you look at the pandemic, but Katrina and Stephen have found joy in their married life. They welcomed their daughter Ashlynn, and at their wedding reception with all of their family and friends present, Katrina danced with her father while Stephen, now a father too, danced with Ashlynn.
