Dancing in the Street: Elaine Welteroth Got Married on Her Brooklyn Stoop, Then Threw a Virtual Block Party, by Alexandra Macon for Vogue
We kicked off our Zoom ceremony with a little “love letter” exercise and virtual family photo. In our invitation, we asked our guests the following: “Write us a love letter: In lieu of a formal guest book and registry, we invite our guests to sow seeds of support via a handwritten letter—marriage advice is welcome!—that can be mailed to us following the ceremony—address is in your invite email. \*Very Important\* On the back of the envelope in large letters, please write one word to take with us on our marriage journey. Note: During the zoom ceremony, guests will be directed to hold up your word for a virtual family photo.”
