For this couple, this was their second wedding — to each other. While they had been married earlier in life and had several children together, they faced difficulties that they did not think they could overcome. After being separated for a while, they realized that their love truly could last forever, and nothing could stand in the way of that. In spite of some of the challenges that resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, the bride and groom were able to plan a quaint and personal wedding in Rotterdam in the Netherlands with their closest family members and friends.
