With Pandemic situation created due to Covid-19, the entire world have struggled to find a way to be happy; while most ways are failing, this determined Indian couple decided to tie their knot and get married while so many uncertainties are constantly emerging.
While the coronavirus pandemic can’t stop love, it sure has a way of thwarting long-made plans — including weddings. Some couples have vowed to cancel their nuptials until they can have the packed party of their dreams, others are turning to unique methods to ensure their ceremonies are social distancing-friendly.
Zalak and Abhi met each other two years prior through their mutual friends and fell in love with each other as the time progressed. Just like any other Indian Wedding, they have also planned theirs in presence of over 500 guests to celebrate their Big Fat Indian Wedding. No one had any idea that this pandemic situation will bring so many challenges as they were coming closer to their wedding date. With constant changing restrictions and guidelines to be followed due to Covid-19 Pandemic situation, they both were nervous as well and were debating whether to hold their wedding or not.
One day just four weeks prior to their wedding, Zalak & Abhi decided to move forward with their wedding thinking in their mind - "whatever happens - happens for Good". And here is the final outcome of their beautiful wedding. Check out their Indian Wedding Video at their home on backyard.
Read the Entire story about their love and how they planned their Pandemic Indian Wedding:
Zalak and I met through family friends. At the time I was living in Ohio and she was in New Jersey. We started chatting and immediately felt the connection. After weeks of chatting online; we went on our first date to Atlantic City.
The first time I saw her I couldn't take my eyes off of her. I still remember the way she looked when I first saw her all these years later. It was one of the best day of my life. Even today when I imagine that moment, it immediately brings a smile to my face.
Everyone has that one special moment or that one special someone that changes their life. For me it was the day we meant. Ever since I feel like I’m living a new life. She brought so much positivity and energy unlike anything else. I feel like I'm more mature and overall better person today than I was before I met her.
After being together for two years we decided to get married. We had a big wedding planned just like every other big fat indian wedding.
However, because of the COVID 19 we were not able to get our big wedding.
But, Both Zalak and I are strong believers that everything happens for a reason and God always has a better plan. With everyone’s blessing we decided to keep our wedding on the same day. And it turned out much much better than expected.
Our photographer, Chirali and Amish Thakkar from Fine Art Production did an amazing job making our day memorable. When we looked at our wedding pictures it took us right back to that day and every little detail came running back. It felt like it was just yesterday. They did an amazing job capturing every little detail from getting ready to Vidai.
Every time we look at our pictures and video, we get to relive the moment like it just happened yesterday. We could not be more thankful for all the hard work that Fine Art Studio put in to make our special moment into lifetime memory that we get to relive every time we see it. Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication. You truly know how to put a smile on someone’s face.
Thank you Chirali & Amish for being there in tough time with us and capturing beautiful indian wedding moments for us and for our family.
