NH couple organizes Zoom wedding in under 24 hours

The coronavirus pandemic is forcing people to change and cancel plans; that includes brides and grooms who had been planning their 2020 weddings. A Windham teacher and her husband decided to make the most of it — planning a Zoom wedding in less than 24 hours. They say everything happens for a reason. Susan and Rick Brown exchanged vows in the backyard. It wasn’t the wedding they had been planning for the last year which was supposed to be held at Atkinson Country Club, but this couple has decided to look for silver linings. “We kind of just said why don’t we do it anyway?” Rick said.”We loved our original date — April 24, 2020. Everything we made for the wedding had that date on it, and it was just spur of the moment, ‘You ready to get married?’ And I was like ‘OK!'” Susan said.Friends and family made sure it was perfect. Susan’s bridesmaids sent flowers and a boutonniere to their home. Their friend officiated the wedding from afar. “It was a nice break from all the insanity that’s come along with the COVID crisis,” Rick said.More than 70 friends and family members joined in. Susan, a 6th grade teacher in Windham, says one of the best parts was her students joined in on the ceremony via Zoom.”Yesterday I ended up telling them Rick and I decided we’re actually going to get married tonight and they were like, ‘Can we come?'” Susan said. “And oh my goodness, they got dressed up; they had little bow ties on; they were drinking lemonade. It was so cute.” Susan’s gown and Rick’s suit weren’t done in time because of the pandemic. The honeymoon has been shelved until July. But Rick and Susan believe everything happens for a reason.”For something so horrible that was kind of taken away from us, we made this into such a great day,” Susan said.The couple hopes to celebrate in person with family on their backup date of July 10, 2020 at the Atkinson Country Club.
