An awe-inspiring adjustment for their COVID wedding

Their wedding, like many of my other couples this year, required a few adjustments amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Amanda, however, had a vision and stuck with it. While she originally planned to have her wedding inside at Belle Mer, they instead rented a beautiful tent with plenty of space for safe social distancing. Consequently, it was intimate, but all the more stunning and romantic!

A traditional aesthetic with floral elements

Sayles Livingston Design nailed the florals for this wedding. The tented reception had flowers that filled the room, without taking up space on the table.

Amanda and Ryan are what you call a couple “truly in love.” They both are outgoing, bubbly and energetic. Most importantly, they’re madly in love with each other.
