You’re going to have a great marriage! I know it. It stinks how it didn’t go how you want, but it seemed like a sweet day to me: the note from your fiancé, and love during the vows, and having the beautiful rainbow to accompany your first evening as husband and wife! I hope someday you will be able to look at the craziness and laugh and feel like it was a crazy situation you made the best of. Also, I think it might be nice to do another photo shoot, even in your dress as an anniversary event or whatever.

It won’t be long before you can laugh with everyone about this.  Sometimes you have to ‘fake it till you make it’ so trying to find the funny in it sooner than later could definitely help.  Most brides have a few things go wrong, you had a lot of things go wrong.  I think you’re strong enough to ’embrace the suck’ (as we say in the military).  Your wedding will be much more talked about than everyone else’s for the rest of your lives and it’ll bring smiles to everyone’s faces.

Congratulations! You have such an amazing attitude about it all that I am sure you will have a happy marriage. And if you hate your photos, get dressed back up with your partner and have new ones taken. You deserve it.

@Married2020:  Your story reminds me of the wedding in About Time, which is one of the best weddings in cinematic history! But you do deserve another shot at photos, ask your photographer about a little portrait session she might give you a good deal.

You have a fantastic attitude about the whole thing. Love is what matters in the end, and you have that in spades. Congratulations on your marriage!

We had to cancel our immediate family only wedding but didn’t want to give up our 3/26 date because it was our two year anniversary and we’d chosen it intentionally and were looking forward to it. So we told our families to stay healthy and safe at home (they all would’ve had to travel), and got married by my coworker’s husband and my coworker served as amateur photographer. I wore a simple teal dress that has meaning to us, we stood on a tiny pier on the beach, and the ceremony was literally five minutes or less. It wasn’t what I’d imagined, but it was our wedding and we loved it. We like to say we didn’t let a global pandemic stop us! 🙂

We are going to do wedding photos whenever we can get our families and friends together for a vow renewal celebration. I still want wedding pictures, they’re important to me. But like you said, we can make all of this work if we just stay patient and positive!
