Sharon Coleman, a wedding planner and owner of Ritzee Florist in Midtown, prepares for a wedding on Friday, June, 25, at the Reign Event Venue. “So many weddings were pushed back” because of the pandemic, she said. “Not only pushed back, so many went a different route – no guests, or limited guests.
