A growing number of couples are opting to supplement their small nuptials with a second, and in some cases third, wedding celebration not long after the first, writes Jenny Block for The New York Times

Manhattan couple Amanda Jane Cooper and Andrew Bell married at New York’s City Hall in March 2020, after canceling their nuptials, which had been planned for April.

Due to the pandemic, the two felt they never properly celebrated. So, several weeks after they wed, they held a second virtual ceremony with their families, friends, and pastor.

However, even though Cooper, a Great Valley High School graduate and actress who has played the role of Glinda in Wicked on Broadway, got to wear her wedding dress, the virtual experience was not wholly satisfying.

“We were wanting to experience something that is really meaningful in person, to be in community with the people who will be supporting us in our marriage,” said Bell, who works at Goldman Sachs. 

On Sept. 19, 2021, they organized a third wedding celebration at French Creek Golf Club in Elverson. This event included a vow renewal ceremony that was led by two of their friends before 135 guests.
