Coronavirus has changed, postponed, and even canceled a lot of wedding plans, but you know what hasn’t changed? How much Morgan and Troy want to spend the rest of their lives together!
Their original plan was to get married at First Baptist Church Greenville on April 4. With the number of people allowed to gather quickly diminishing and an impending shelter in place order, Morgan and Troy made the call to postpone their wedding to May 16. Tragically, Troy’s father’s health was also diminishing. Morgan and Troy desperately wanted his father to be at their wedding. While he wasn’t at their ceremony, they were legally married days before his father was called home to the Heavenly Father. Troy had already told his father, so he knew his son was a married man before he passed.
Everything was set for a May wedding, but gatherings were still limited a couple of weeks prior. They decided to postpone the big celebration until July. It was strange to Morgan and Troy that they were legally married, but only on paper. As such, they decided to have an intimate ceremony in May so they could say their vows.
Just before the ceremony started, their ring bearer and flower girl passed out green awareness ribbon pins in honor of Troy’s father. Everyone in attendance proudly wore their pin. Morgan had hers attached to her bouquet and Troy’s was fastened to the lapel of his blazer. While he was not there physically, Troy’s dad was there in spirit.
Morgan and Troy, thank you so much for allowing me to participate in your wedding ceremony! I know your wedding plans have changed so many times, but it all happens for a reason. Thank you for showing everyone that starting your marriage is the most important part of your wedding day. I can’t wait to see y’all again in July for the
wedding marriage celebration of your dreams!
