As Ryan Gosling says in The Notebook, ‘So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day, we assume you have a similar current situation and most importantly, a similar outlook. Love is never easy, especially when you are this close to being together forever. Every passing day makes you long for each other even more and if you are together, it makes you wait for that day when your couplehood can be officiated.

If a small or big wedding is not your cuppa tea, ever thought about eloping? It’s ideal for couples who are more private or do not want the razzle-dazzle of a big wedding. Or for couples who are born with an adventurous streak or wish to save a buck that goes into planning a big fat wedding. And how can we forget the most-hated thing in the whole world right now - coronavirus! The fluidity of the ongoing pandemic has led many couples to choose a simple yet romantic elopement or an elope-now-and-party-later option. However, elopements do require a bit of planning and execution as well. From understanding the ‘whys’ to analyzing the ‘hows’, there are certain things that are not just superficial. This elopement inspiration from Zola makes understanding the process of an elopement relatively easier for you. So, as Kina Grannis sings ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ while you walk towards your soulmate who’s waiting for you under the wedding arch, know that you’ve come a long way and planning this elopement has worked out phenomenally for the both of you!

June 6th, 2020. The date will go down in the history of love stories as the day when love overcame injustice. Love flourished and celebrated its existence, amidst all the negativity and hostility faced by it, ready to take on the world. The eighth day of Philadelphia's peaceful protest in the wake of George Floyd's death saw an epic moment when a newlywed couple Kerry-Anne and Michael came out of Logan Hotel after their wedding ceremony to join the protest. The power held by that moment is beyond anyone’s imagination as the newlyweds made a strong statement about racism in today’s world. The momentous ‘after-party’ saw the power of love overcoming the man-made boundaries of racism. The empowering moment made history and left Kerry-Anne and Michael completely overwhelmed by the gravity of the situation, celebrating their wedding amidst such a powerful cause. Take a look to understand the feel of that epic moment!
