The pandemic might have slowed things down for the rest of the world, but for Camille and Mark, life took a joyful turn – they’re having a baby! Keeping things simple but intimate, they finally got to exchange vows and become husband and wife. At their reception, in addition to celebrating their wedding, they also did a gender reveal of their baby – it’s a baby boy! Thank you, ProudRad, for this gorgeous and sweet set of wedding photos.
Mark: “Our story is one of providence amidst a pandemic. It started in March 2020, when the country went into lockdown just as we returned from a trip to Japan. Japan had a relatively high number of cases at the time, so we decided to immediately quarantine together to avoid potentially exposing our family and friends. Two months later, we were blessed with a pregnancy!
“By then we already knew that we wanted to get married, and the situation with Covid-19 and lockdowns just accelerated things. We also wanted to be married before Camille began to show, hence the need to move quickly. To be honest, our theme was quite an eclectic one as we put together a wedding based on what was available, but in the end, the important thing was having a simple, intimate wedding with immediate family and close friends. We also decided to have the gender reveal of our baby at the reception. It was a beautiful way to find out we were having a baby boy.”
Tips from the bride: “It doesn’t have to be perfect to be perfect.”
