Our Elegant Events wedding planning team had no idea what was in store for Ryan and Dino’s destination wedding, back when we shared this sneak peek at their engagement photos.
Plans for Ryan and Dino’s Arizona destination wedding were well underway. However, as we all know, COVID-19 and local rules and regulations can create changes day by day.
During the final planning stages, Arizona had reduced its quarantine restrictions so that local businesses and restaurants were operating normally. However, we faced drastically different circumstances leading up to the holiday wedding weekend. Businesses were either forced to close or reduce operations to limit contact.
We quickly worked to implement spacing guidelines for ceremony and reception seating. We redesigned the reception to no more than six guests per table. Wedding guests were required to sign a waiver if they declined to answer commonly asked questions about COVID-19 and international travel, and each guest was temperature checked upon entering each event.
