The Brief: In the wake of a global pandemic and social distancing, some soon-to-be newlyweds have figured out that they can fulfill their dream wedding fantasies virtually through Zoom.


The Coronavirus has not stopped people from eloping with each other. Since no one can attend large gatherings like a wedding ceremony, eager couples are still going on with their dream weddings but in a more high-tech fashion.

Through Zoom’s platform, people are still saying “I do” in front of their extended family and friends. Even though many couples have chosen to postpone their weddings, some have taken the opportunity to still go through with one of the most important days of their lives.

On Instagram, many newlyweds have also chosen to live-stream their weddings for people to witness and maybe even shed a tear at. #ZoomWedding has over 1,000 uses on Instagram and can be searched all over Twitter. Couples are refusing to cancel their weddings so apparently Zoom or Instagram has become the best alternatives for their big day.

Cue all the happy tears! 😭 Jennifer & Kerry were kind enough to share their COVID-19 wedding story with us: "My fiancé and I have been planning our dream wedding and looking forward to what was supposed to be the best day ever on April 4th, 2020. Like many other couples all around the nation, we were forced to postpone our big day to the fall due to the COVID-19 crisis. We went through plan A, B, and finally to C with all the restrictions and rules changing daily. Despite all the stressful cancellations and postponements we still wanted to get married and celebrate our love. With a limited but amazing team, we made it happen and shared our moment virtually with loved ones through a Zoom conference call. The day turned out so beautiful, special and intimate. Our friends even surprised us with a car parade through the neighborhood. It was better than anything I could ever have imagined. My now-husband, Kerry and I wanted to share our love story for those going through the same thing. Times are uncertain now but love is all that we need." ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Please share some joy and happiness with any couples who've had to postpone or cancel! // Video: @thyngo⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ Brides of Austin FEATURED vendors:⁠⠀ Dress: @enzoani from @brickhousebridal⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ •⁠⠀ #bridesofaustin #austinwedding #atx #austin #austintx #atxwedding #texaswedding #txwedding #austinbride #atxbride #texasbride #txbride #weddinginspiration #weddinginspo #bride #wedding #engaged #bridetobe #keepaustinwed #cornabride #coronavirus #covid19 #zoomwedding #postponedontcancel #coronalove #loveinthetimeofcorona #loveinthetimeofcovid #loveisallyouneed @jenniferlamtang @spicydabs

The most connected I’ve felt in weeks. I married my handsome husband yesterday. We were surround by our friends and family all while remaining safe and healthy. Thank you god. Thank you @zoom_video_communications haha. The last two weeks have been incredibly difficult. Required to hold off on a day we’ve been planning for a long time. We felt confused, sad and almost like the world was conspiring against us. When we put this day into perspective, we realized that there was no need to postpone our joy. With technology and the support of our family and friends we put together something beautiful. It was intimate and collaborative. @albertrunsalot inserted the sense of calm we needed to execute this and make it feel like us. We are able to keep the “chat” messages as a digital guest book, and a reminder of all the kind wishes we received this day. To all of the couples out there feeling personally attacked by Covid, it will all be okay and you will have your special day. My husband and I have bonded in a way that is indescribable. We have a story to tell our kids that we survived (I may tell them we fought off zombies for good measure). And we’re here. We did it. Do not postpone your joy (just keep health and safety in mind). ♥️ #justinlovewithmaryssa #zoom #theknot #avalanchegottocometothewedding #zoomwedding #covidwedding. @theknot

It wasn’t at the Victorian. We didn’t have a dj, photobooth, or caterer. We didn’t have the hundreds of guests we invited. We didn’t have a sparkler exit. But we did have an amazing photographer: @wanderlustmemoriesllc, delicious food, and the people who brought us life. We had the most amazing, intimate little ceremony we could’ve ever dreamed of. The most important part is the marriage, not the wedding. 80+ of our friends and family (even some fully dressed up) got to be there with us via live stream (s/o to @zoom_video_communications ) We are so thankful and would not have had it any other way! Endless thanks to all who made this possible! #PerfectlyTaylored #covid19wedding #backyardwedding #Zoomwedding #telewed #coronawedding
