NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – Pandemic wedding postponements have led to more ceremonies this summer.

One of our NewsChannel colleagues who canceled a wedding date last summer due to the pandemic finally tied the knot.

Ryan Fish and Kelsey Christensen said their vows at the Environmental Nature Center near her old high school in Newport Beach.

One of her younger sisters officiated the ceremony.

The newlyweds took an electric boat ride to their reception at the Newport Harbor Yacht Club.

After their honeymoon, they will settle in Tucson, Arizona where Fish will be reporting at KGUN-TV.

The Fish wedding was one of hundreds of local weddings that were postponed during the COVID-19 pandemic. As health restrictions begin to ease, in part thanks to the proliferation of effective vaccines, weddings are being booked with regularity.

Many venues and vendors say they are booked solid through the rest of the year and beyond. It's a welcome change for those couple who have had to put their nuptials on hold for months.
