This is the story of how the power of love that resulted in a wedding helped Carlos Muniz to find motivation to overcome coronavirus. Shared on the official Facebook page of Methodist Hospital, a video shows Carlos Muniz and his fiancé Grace getting married in the hospital.
A bride, Lauren Jimenez, with just three days to her big day, tested positive for Covid-19. Undeterred, however, she decided to go forward with the wedding while keeping in mind the aspect of safety. She opted for a Tangled-inspired wedding that helped her exchange the vows of togetherness with her fiancé Patrick Delgado.

This couple decided to get married in a small ceremony and spend all the wedding deposit on Thanksgiving meal for 200 people in need.
Lockdown brought them closer
Sundeep Dosanjh and Sharath Puttichanda met back in January for their first date before the pandemic plagued the world. Soon everything came to a halt with various countries announcing lockdowns and they were stuck in their own homes in different cities in the USA. However, the distance ended up bringing them even closer and they finally decided to tie the knot.
‘I do’ on Brooklyn Bridge
Nikolina Kovalenko and Stefan Ponova met about a year ago when they both were backpacking through South America. Their story would have ended as Kovalenko was just starting her backpacking tour while Ponova was ready to go back home after 2.5 years of travelling. However, Ponova decided to stick around and when they returned to their home in the USA, they decided to see more of each other. However, as fate would have it, quarantine started after a week they returned. It’s during that time they realised their connection and love growing stronger. Finally, they decided to get married in a very small ceremony on Brooklyn Bridge.
