Kierney and William ride bikes to the County Clerk's Office, the ONLY acceptable form of transportation on their wedding day.

Kierney and William had a large outdoor beach wedding planned for September 2020, but when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, they decided a few weeks that what they really wanted was to just be married.  Kierney and William are incredibly relaxed, adventurous people, so the day was incredibly representative of who they are: they walked their dogs to a nearby meadow before riding bikes to the county clerk's office for a simple civil ceremony with their family members watching from a Zoom call.

While the couple was planning on keeping their original plans to hold a ceremony and beach reception in September, only a few weeks after their civil ceremony, the wedding venue would cancel on them, permanently altering what little plans they did have.  They rolled with the changes though: they bought a camper as their honeymoon gift to themselves and are spending their quaranlives fixing up their backyard and intend to hold a reception there instead.
