The time of crisis makes you cling more to the people you love and we couldn’t agree more. Introducing our couple for today Dhrumil and Shreya who had originally planned on getting hitched by the end of this year but had their wedding preponed (I’d say a first) to the month of May. We like to believe that the distance that occurred due to the lockdown for this couple is the reason that they decided to wait no more for their happily ever after. After all, isn’t it, ‘now or never!?’
Introducing Dhrumil and Shreya's Intimate Wedding
After realizing that the situation is not going to work in a grand wedding’s favour, Dhrumil and Shreya decide to get hitched in less than 10 days and have an intimate wedding. This duo decided to tie the knot around 20 of their nearest and dearest ones and have the rest on zoom call. Shreya said, "A virtual wedding with only the immediate family present was the most practical approach in times like these."
So, on 28th May, Dhrumil and Shreya got married in an intimate wedding ceremony. They say that by having a virtual wedding, not only did this wedding party save a lot of money on the venue, food and what not but even managed to have a more personal and lovely wedding ceremony compared to a grand one.
A Virtual Wedding: Made in Lockdown
Our bride Shreya said, "If you were wondering if zoom weddings are actually worth it, I will answer with a resounding "yes." Our parents and the entire wedding party blessed us from afar, but their smiles beamed brightly through the computer screen. We used the zoom meeting platform, considering they weren't present in person, it was overwhelming and emotional. Our friends and family were all dressed up, some sent us photos standing next to the screen for our wedding reception album and some were seen dancing on the screen at the sangeet night. zoom definitely set a new standard for how elaborate and amazing a virtual wedding can be."
Words of Wisdom From The Bride:
Our bride Shreya on having an intimate wedding said, "Zoom weddings may be poised to become the norm rather than the exception, at least for the duration of 2020. It is important for all of us to remember that good things can still happen, even in the middle of a global pandemic, even as the world is scary. And it is worth reminding ourselves of that."
