My husband and I got engaged during the height of COVID. We originally planned on a big wedding in our local area of Evansville Indiana. There were plenty of beautiful locations that we could have had the wedding at. However, this was a time where you couldn’t rent anywhere due to restrictions. A honeymoon seemed like an impossible dream too. Traveling overseas was totally banned and even going to another state seemed like a bad idea. It seemed like we had to do something local. Instead of doing a big wedding where nobody could come, we did a small ceremony just the two of us at the local courthouse. Instead of an overseas honeymoon that would make us wear masks and quarantine, we went to Burdette Park. You can rent rustic chalets that are surrounded by wooded campgrounds. It was really great for two people trying to get away who couldn’t. We also did this during the summer so the Olympic sized pool and family pool were open as well in the park. It wasn’t the wedding and honeymoon of my dreams but we really enjoyed it. We had a relaxing time, nice weather and did get some great local pictures. The best news was that every service we hired like the photographer, flowers and wedding cake were all local Evansville businesses. We didn’t spend that much money and supported the other locals. After we were ready to go home, it was a quick twenty minute drive and I was back in my own bed again.
