The house was previously an 18th-century mansion in the hamlet of Stone Ridge. The couple’s wedding included only about 22 guests because of the COVID-19. All the attendees were vaccinated.

The You alum said had it not been the period of COVID-19, she and her husband could’ve easily invited 200 people. In fact, Nieku and his then-fiancée at times even thought of postponing their nuptials due to the pandemic 2020.

Lail in an interview later revealed the afterward of the wedding to her felt like an entirely intuitive experience. The couple admits as they went through the flow, more and more creatives kept coming over the course of their planning.

For the dress, Nieku’s bride approached UK-based designer Andrea Hawkes via Zoom in addition to the jewelry from Tiffany and Co. The gems were apparently gifted by Nieku’s mother.
