Fate was definitely on Caroline and Daniel’s side, as COVID-19 allowed them to have the dream ceremony venue they wouldn’t have been able to use with their original guest list! While everything in the postponing process due to Covid wasn’t anything this couple imagined, the end result was a day they will forever be grateful for. Originally scheduled to happen on April 11th, 2020, the couple’s six year dating anniversary, cuts to the guest list and restrictions on gatherings quickly took a toll on scheduled plans. But that didn’t get them down! After contacting the church and asking to use White’s Chapel for their corona wedding ceremony, Daniel reminded Caroline that before he even proposed, she talked about how she would love to get married at White’s Chapel. And look how it ended up happening! Complete proof that you can’t quarantine love. Scroll to read this couple’s complete story and to see all the sweet details in their chapel corona wedding day. Cheers to the Walkers!

From the bride: “Daniel proposed in April of 2018, and we started planning our wedding for April 11, 2020 (our six year dating anniversary). It started with us cancelling our honeymoon to Italy, then we thought we would be able to have the wedding but with only 100 guests, then with only 50, and then with ten. We always remained positive, and when we finally had to push everything to August, we knew we still wanted to have a ceremony on our original wedding date even if it was just the two of us. Daniel reminded me that right before we got engaged, I had shown him this chapel and said ‘if we didn’t have such a large guest count for our wedding one day, I would want to get married here.’ There we were, a slightly rainy Saturday with our parents, siblings, officiant and photographer. It was perfect and lovely. We took pictures around the church, then went to my parents’ house for dinner. When we arrived, all of our aunts, uncles and a few cousins drove by in a car parade with bells, confetti, signs and horns cheering us on six-feet apart. We felt so loved and celebrated that day. You can’t quarantine love.”
