Getting ready for a Market at Grelen WeddingIf you’re on the hunt for a venue that fits the bill for a COVID-19 friendly celebration, check out this summer Market at Grelen wedding. Emily & Nevin downsized their original day, taking their large guest count and trimming it down to just their nearest and dearest. They also reduced the number of activities for their guests to encourage social distancing and a safe event. For their guests that couldn’t attend, they sent out a “wedding-in-a-box kit” so everyone could celebrate in spirit, how sweet is that?!Bride and Bridesmaids at a Market at Grelen WeddingInvitation suite for a Market at Grelen WeddingFor Emily & Nevin, family is everything and they wove tradition and special tributes to family throughout their day. To start, Emily’s engagement ring was a family heirloom, originally belonging to Nevin’s mother. Nevin and his groomsmen also started their morning at a family property called Harkaway.

What may have driven some engaged couples a little crazy only served to pull Emily and Nevin closer together. Emily told me just before the wedding that the bonus time together had been such a blessing and reminded us all the more of how sweet it will be to have “a forever of days together”. She said that pre-2020, they wanted to stay focused on the real meaning of their wedding, committing to one another. As the surrounding world grew more hectic, Emily and Nevin really felt centered around that goal.
