Just because there's a pandemic doesn't mean people have put love on hold. If anything, this pandemic has made more people feel like they want to have someone to spend the time with. One Kalamazoo couple in particular felt that way apparently, as they decided to book a flight to Colorado where they would tie the knot.  On top of that, they were spotted after the ceremony with their photographer by someone from The Coloradoan, who describe themselves as "Community-captivated reporters and innovative digital media," that, "deliver essential Northern Colorado news."

In a post they highlighted the couple who kept the winter wedding experience alive while away from Michigan. Besides, after two failed attempts why not just bail and do it yourself. The Coloradoan captured the couple in wedded bliss: "On the frozen shores of Lake Loveland today, we stumbled upon this just-married couple who had eloped to the Sweetheart City from Kalamazoo, Michigan. Kristine and Michael Schomisch are being photographed by Molly Cross. "

The new bride, Kristine Schomisch is also an active citizen within the community as a Board Member at the Kalamazoo County Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention Council, a non-profit organization founded in 1976 as the primary prevention program which educates pre-K kids to protect themselves from abuse through education, awareness and advocacy.

Technically speaking, they actually self-solemnized after there was one attempt failed due to my medical issues and they were never able to reschedule due to the pandemic. Regardless, it's always great when good people find love and something to lift them up through this pandemic. It's a rough time out there right now, but I'm glad this couple was able to make it safe and solidify their partnership. They spell "love," L-E-A-V-E, at least in this case.
