Bri and Lindsey Leaverton have always been a spontaneous couple: they went on their first date within 12 hours of matching on a dating site in 2018, and three days later they became girlfriends.
After they got engaged, they planned to marry on April 10 of this year — Good Friday — in a historic hotel where they live in Austin, Texas.
“We had everything planned down to a tee,” said Lindsey, 37. “We were supposed to get married on 4.10.20, Good Friday, because nothing says, ‘Happy Easter’ like a good old lesbian wedding.”
But when Austin instituted shelter-in-place advisories just weeks before their wedding, and they watched as their guest list shrunk down to 50 and then just 10 people, the couple realized their day wouldn’t be going on as planned.
