Because I know someone who knows the couple I didn’t call the authorities, as it seemed a bit extreme when the first avenue could be open communication. Instead, I brought up your concerns to my friend and the couple is now re-planning their ceremony. It turns out my friend was also uncomfortable with the idea, so I appreciate everyone sharing their concerns.
This is a hard time for everyone, and all of this happened so quickly. It’s easy for a couple to think about themselves for a moment, because this whole year has been thinking about other people. Please note that it was never their intentions to directly go against guidelines, rather a gut reaction to try to salvage part of what should’ve been one of the biggest celebrations of their life. They’ve made the right decisions now, so I hope that eases everyone’s worries.
