Those who have wanted to go forward with wedding plans despite the pandemic have had to manage their expectations, focusing on those closest to them and hosting intimate ceremonies rather than huge parties.
Nursing home inhabitants especially faced a lot of isolation, and celebrations had to be brought to them rather than vice versa.
But those with the strongest of bonds with their elderly family members have adjusted to include them. Some have shown up to celebrate from outside windows or glass doors so that their loved ones could still experience some of the magic of the special day.
Clay and Megan Moore of Russellville, Arkansas, had one very special woman they just had to see on their wedding day. Clay’s grandmother, in a nursing home, couldn’t be left out of the festivities.
So, shortly after exchanging vows, the couple rushed to see her, still dressed in their wedding finery, so that she could participate in their celebration.
Heath Whorton of Whorton Photo & Film captured the beautiful moment as the newlyweds peeked in through a window and grandma looked out, happy but with a tissue clutched in one hand.
“Clay and Megan made a special trip to see Clay’s grandmother in the nursing home after their ceremony,” Whorton said in a Facebook post on Sunday.
“The pure happiness in her face during this entire moment is one that had us all in tears. It’s another moment that I feel like deserves it’s own place.”
“2020 hasn’t been easy on anyone, but tonight I am reminded that there are people out there that are having to talk to some of the most important people in their lives through a glass window on their wedding day.”
Ragena Moore, identifying herself as Clay’s mother, commented on the share of the image to express her heartfelt gratitude.
Such a beautiful day! Can’t wait for all the pictures to come so here is one to share with all of you!
