California has banned gatherings of non-household members. Engaged couples must decide whether to postpone their pre-pandemic plans indefinitely, or make all-new pandemic plans. Miriam Hershman and Sagar Yadav just got married in front of five guests at Hershman’s grandparents’ front yard in Sherman Oaks. The bride got dressed in her dad’s old bedroom. They played their first dance off an iPad. The reception was catered by the groom’s favorite: Domino’s Pizza.
