Covid-19 really made 2020 interesting for those trying to get married. Post-poned weddings, micro-weddings, elopements, cancellations… these are just a few of the challenges that were thrown at 2020 couples. But, Melissa + Brad made the best of a difficult situation (okay, maybe many), and came out looking and feeling fabulous on the day of. They had the best day with their immediate families and wedding party, and while their big reception has been pushed to winter 2021 – they have been all smiles and love… Melissa even started a project to help pandemic brides plan and pivot their wedding plans: The Spicy Bride Project. Make sure you check that out, but not until you scroll through all the amazing Chicago wedding photos below that completely capture the essence of having a 2020 pandemic wedding.
