Real Bride Ashley Luu Conrad: Celebrating the Big Day Despite Covid-19
Real bride Ashley Luu Conrad shares with us her experience planning her September 2020 wedding while navigating the changes needing to be made because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the smoke from the California wildfires. We discuss the stressful process of getting her marriage license, the possibility of family not in attendance, and why they decided not to postpone. She also gives her advice to other couples that are making the decision whether to postpone or not.

*Disclaimer: Our interview took place in September right after their wedding. According to the CDC “COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths across the United States are rising. As cold weather moves in, people spend more time indoors, and as the holidays approach, take steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet apart, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often. The more steps you take, the more you are protected against COVID-19.” For more information please visit cdc.org.
