Even in a global pandemic, love finds away. With the help of his parents, Kiran Vedula planned a romantic proposal to girlfriend Karlies Kelley during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not knowing when it would be safe to have a traditional Hindu wedding, they decided not to wait.
On April 3rd, they wed in the living room of Kiran’s parents, joined via Zoom by family and friends from around the globe. For the couple, it was a lighthearted way to avoid the stress that can come along with a traditional wedding.
“If you’re nervous about your family being present and family messes, have a Zoom wedding. They’re the best!” says Karlies.
In total, Kiran and Karlies had 5 people outside of themselves physically attend the wedding. They hope to have a traditional Latin-American ceremony in the future as well, to celebrate Kelley’s heritage being from and born in Panama.
