Also, joining the couple in the interview, is Shuchita Rao, a Boston music teacher and classical singer who attended the virtual meeting from Boston.
“What was innovative about this wedding was the idea of engaging family and friends to be part of the virtual celebration via the reading of a play in English, authored by the bride and groom. It was mailed in the form of a book to the wedding guests ahead of time with instructions to open and read the play only on the wedding day,” says Ms. Rao, a music teacher and classical singer from Boston. “I thoroughly enjoyed reading the well written play script that walked me through the lives of the bride and groom, the flowering of their relationship, how they met, about their families and what marriage means to them.”
