CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | JULY 30-AUGUST 5, 2020 CUMBERLAND 11 photos with the husband and wife. Gabriela said the day brought a lot of smiles. "It was refreshing and heartwarm- ing to see people come out for us. I know people have been feeling down since this pandemic struck, and I realized I haven't seen this amount of people smiling at once in so long. I've been feeding off that energy for days," she said. Simplifying their plans allowed the couple to focus on what truly mat- tered – their love for one another. "That was huge for me," Gabriela said. "Scott and I were just happy to be getting married. We have been talking of marriage and family for over a year. We love each other and didn't want to wait or change our plans again." To engaged couples anxious about wedding planning during a pandem- ic, she said her advice would be to "relax, be cautious, and be creative. You can still pull it off. You can still get it done." She has zero regrets about her low-key wedding day, saying, "Everything happens for a reason." People may come to weddings to dance, drink or eat, but the couple's guests "were willing to drive over just to smile, take a picture and say hello. If you're wondering whether there are still good people in this world, the answer is yes," she said.
