This chic backyard corona wedding featured terra cotta florals and an intimate, private ceremony! March 21, 2020, marked Lauren and Jack’s five year dating anniversary, while also marking the beginning of the “stay at home orders” because of COVID-19. They did not have weeks or months to change their plans, they had just days to cancel their big wedding and switch it to fit COVID-19 guidelines. This gave them the opportunity to now have a “Marriage Day” and a “Wedding Day,” with their “Marriage Day” consisting of a small ceremony in the backyard of their first home together, surrounded only by their parents, and it was the best decision they ever made. It ended up being, as Lauren said, “the most romantic and cherished day of our lives.”
“I will remember every moment, every feeling, every heart flutter and every tear.”
With the help of many of their vendors, they were still able to have some of their wedding day ideas come to life. Lauren’s beautiful bouquet, filled with fresh terra cotta colored florals from Alba Dahlia Floral, was a lovely addition to her wedding day look. Laning Photography was more than happy to still document this day for the couple, and the results are gorgeous photos we can’t take our eyes off! Julep Events planned every little detail of this intimate day, and helped the couple through everything to reschedule their original wedding to a couple months later. Scroll to look through all the photos of this oh-so sweet couple and to read about the bride’s favorite vendor! Cheers to the Fitzgeralds!

From the bride about her favorite vendor: “LANING PHOTOGRAPHY!! Not only are they enormously talented and provide excellent advice, but they are so down to earth and have been incredibly supportive throughout this COVID wedding craziness. They have walked through every step of this with us, and we couldn’t be more grateful. And of course, we now have the most amazing photos that I can’t stop staring at.”
