Like so many other couples during the COVID-19 pandemic, Taylor and Chad decided to delay their grand wedding plans until 2021. However, they did not want to postpone their love and commitment to one another, so they planned a simple yet romantic backyard wedding in Phoenix, Arizona. As many of their friends and family could not be there in-person to celebrate, they leveraged the power of technology to connect with their guests virtually.
