HERMON — Usually the Morgan Hill Event Center would be filled to the brim with soon-to-be brides and grooms.
However, due to the pandemic, the Greater Bangor Area Wedding Show had a limited showing compared to years past.
“Last weekend we were at the Augusta Civic Center we had less people than the last three years. But we actually had more bookings. So this week in a few days we’ll see how many bookings we have from this event. We anticipate that it will probably be the same or greater than last year,” said Robin Cameron, co-owner of Good Life Entertainment.
Due to state mandates, the building could only have 50 people or fewer in it at a time.
With that relatively small number of people, Cameron said she and other vendors could spend more time with their future customers and provide better service.
“I think it’s more developing that one on one connection which in the past we wouldn’t have had the chance to do because there was so many people coming through the doors,” she said.
From options for photographers and bakeries to wedding décor and attire, the future married couples still got what they needed at the show.
“It means a lot to them that they can still plan their wedding and not take away from the thrill of it don’t let COVID-19 ruin your wedding,” Cameron said.
