Fox 45 News, WBFF, came by last week to interview me about the effects of the current situation on weddings.
Here’s their story, and the video:
BALTIMORE (WBFF) — The coronavirus pandemic is hitting in the middle of wedding season.
A day that should be the best day of a bride and groom’s life is now on hold.
Over at Chase Court in Mount Vernon, David Egan has already rescheduled at least seven weddings.
The wedding venue was fully booked for March.
“We’ve been moving weddings to the fall, we’ve been moving weddings into next spring,” said Egan.
Egan has been busy making adjustments to ensure that dream wedding still happens for his clients.
“It hurts, of course it does because you’ve had everything set for this day, you had it all in your mind, you had people lined up, but we all recognize that this is an important thing, we have to do it,” he said.
As for the wedding venue itself, Egan is still operating with the same amount of staff but there has been a reduction in venue tours as many people are opting to stay home.
“It’ll normalize after a while I think, and people will still plan their weddings but they’re going to look a little farther in the future,” said Egan.
He encourages brides and grooms-to-be to remain positive.
“It’s hard, take a breath, we’re going to have your wedding, you’re going to have a great story to tell at the end of the day and it’s going to be wonderful,” said Egan.
Chase Court is still planning and booking weddings.
Going forward, virtual tours will be offered for couples to view the venue safely from home.
