Four hundred guests to twelve. That was the pivot Srina & Shishir made for their wedding when the pandemic hit. Planning an Indian wedding with a modern twist, their planner Taylor O. of Leilani Weddings showed how grand even the smallest backyard wedding can feel!
Being doctors, Srina & Shishir understood how important it was to rearrange plans to be as safe as possible during the pandemic. Narrowing down their guest list to just over a handful, they organized a “drive-by” for local friends to congratulate them without being in attendance. The couple & their talented planners pulled off a modern, intimate & beautiful wedding that was filled with joy and still honored their Indian roots.
Much like so many of our Covid-19 couples, Srina & Shishir “plan to have the big reception celebration when it is safe to have a huge crowd again!” Does this sound like you? We have loads of advice for couples planning multiple celebrations during and after the pandemic.
