A Simply Elegant Blush + Ivory Chapel Corona Wedding
by Sara Haugland November 23
Simply elegant is all we have to say about this blush and ivory chapel corona wedding! After numerous cuts to the guest list and restriction changes, Madeline and Connor decided to have a private intimate chapel ceremony with just their immediate families and officiant present. While it was super last minute, it warms our hearts that this corona couple was still able to have some of their original wedding vendors there to make this day extra memorable. Laning Photography not only drove several hours into town to capture Madeline and Connor’s special day, Hannah Laning also convinced Madeline to wear her real wedding gown to the ceremony, making for some of the most unbelievably stunning photos! Scroll to see all the simple elegance and to read how this couple decided to have their blush and ivory corona wedding. Cheers!

From the bride: “Connor and I had been dating for almost nine years before we got married. We’d been planning this wedding for the last year while he also studied tirelessly for the MCAT to get into med school. Two weeks before our wedding, group gathering restrictions were put into place where you couldn’t have more than 150 people, so we sadly cut our guest list down to 150. The restriction was then lowered to 50 people, and our wedding at this point was looking like a wedding at home, not the dream wedding we’d been planning. Restrictions changed again to 20 people with social distancing guidelines in place. We were heartbroken, but I was also in shock. I recommended we just get married in my living room that night with our immediate families. No wedding dress, no professionals. Just us, our families and our officiant. After talking it over, we decided to move our little ceremony to the next day. We called our church, photographers and my hair and makeup artist to let them know we were getting married the next day but would be postponing our reception to a later date. Their responses were overwhelming! The church offered to open up the chapel to us, our photographers said that they would drive several hours back into town to get photos of our special day, and Hannah Laning talked me into wearing my real wedding dress since they’d be there to take pictures! Brittany Jones offered to drive all the way to my house that next day to give me my original bridal look. I was speechless! Although we were so sad we couldn’t celebrate with everyone, we are so glad we were able to finally get married after all of this!”
