We know that this last year has been super difficult for us all. We hope by our wedding date Covid-19 will be less of a concern for our guests. However, we can not guarantee that. In consideration for ourselves and our guests we will ask that each guest considers getting tested and having negative test results within 72 hours of the ceremony date. We will not enforce the mask mandate unless the state requires us to do so, but if you feel like you want to wear a mask we encourage you to do so. If you are traveling via air, it has been shown that air travel is low risk. If a vaccine is available to you we do recommend you consider it. Avoiding risky behavior a few weeks before the wedding can also reduce the risk of contagion or spread. We also recommend that guests consider the cancelation policy of their rentals incase for some reason last minute you can not make it. Please if you feel at all sick, stay at home. The venue is mostly outdoors and we will work with the venue to ensure that special protocols are in place to reduce the risk. The transmission rate of spread in the outdoors is very low.
