Like many couples, Donna and Mark were torn between moving forward with a COVID wedding or postponing to 2021/2022. They ultimately decided to downsize their guest count to 50 and to have as normal of a wedding as possible. The results were nothing short of stunning. From the photos, shot by the talented Magnolia Studio, you can hardly tell they were in the middle of a pandemic. The bride was gorgeous in a glitzy gown from David's Bridal and chic hair by Hair by Tabatha Calic and make-up by Jen Evoy Makeup Studio. The couple’s elegant and intimate affair, planned by Derek Drapala via Berkeley Events & Catering, was celebrated with close family and friends; laughter was aplenty; and the day was an overall success.
