Romantic and Cozy Ceremony in Beaverton
Wedding Date: June 20th, 2020
Not even a pandemic could stop Anupriya Singh and Sachin Dhar from tying the knot. After a two-year engagement, the couple wasn’t interested in waiting any longer to make their love official, and so they became husband and wife in a cozy backyard wedding. The couple pared down their original plan for a 225-person wedding to create a safe environment for their celebration during the time of COVID-19. The bride and groom glowed in matching gold embroidery, custom-made for them in India. A tent of sheer pink fabric bordered by garlands of blue hydrangea, peach-colored roses and greenery served as the setting for the Hindu ceremony and seamlessly tied the space into the intimate backyard setting. The smaller scale allowed for the couple to hone in on the details of their day. Hand-calligraphed coasters with guests’ names acted as place cards, and the couple took the time to make silverware holders in the weeks leading up to the celebration. Anupriya’s father even surprised the guests and the couple with homemade chocolate-covered strawberries. Once seated at the flower-and-candle-strewn table, guests dined on samosas, curries and more from Swagat Indian Cuisine. During the reception meal, Sachin kept his hand on Anupriya’s arm as they both smiled, listening to family and friends give speeches of hope and love. Though COVID-19 has caused so many people to feel isolated, Anupriya and Sachin took the opportunity to foster togetherness.
