Let's show these rings! Bling, bling!

Waauw, what a year! Normally you would go to the theater to see these kinds of epic stories about a worldwide pandemic. So this seems to be our new reality for a while. This was my first assignment after almost all weddings were postponed. Still, no party allowed, unfortunately, but love still rules! Some couples won't be stopped by an enemy they can't even see. Damn you COVID virus, for ruining our party, but you can't stop love!
