TULSA, Okla. — Phase 2 of Governor Stitt's recover safely and open up plan starts this Friday, May 15.

Sporting events, bars, and weddings will be allowed to open, as long as they follow CDC guidelines.

Kyara Little and her fiance Steve Smith have experienced many changes with their wedding due to COVID-19. Their original, and popular, wedding venue 'Noahs' filed bankruptcy in February.

Kyara and her fiance have been together for more than five years.

They got engaged last August of 2019, and they weren't expecting the rocky road ahead.

After moving their wedding date, they had to decrease their attendance size from 300 guests down to 150.

Right now, the plan is to have the wedding at a hotel, but they aren't sure if things will continue to change, so they say they will keep rolling with the punches.

Although they will be following all CDC guidelines to keep all guests safe, they want to remember what that day is really supposed to be about.

“With the COVID outbreak, it has really just pushed me to just separate, okay what is it that I really want, versus what is logical, what’s feasible and what I going to keep everyone safe,” Little said.

The Governor's plan says if events have more than 50 people, they should be exercising appropriate social distancing and other guidelines.

Additional measures must be taken to keep food, and surfaces clean throughout the event.

When we asked the Governor's office about Phase Three, officials say things have not yet been determined.

Little tells me she wants this day to be intimate so she can remember it forever, and although the pandemic has changed some things, she won't let it affect this special time.
