It’s no doubt that Deepti Vempati is one of the favorite contestants from Love is Blind Season 2. And the reason is quite obvious: She chooses herself every time before choosing someone else, giving us ultimate self-love goals. Hers and Shake’s wedding moment is unique to the show and will remain iconic. Thus, it is no surprise that Netflix recently uploaded a tweet video about Shake and Deepti’s wedding, celebrating the self-love moment.
Spoiler Alert: If you are still not done with Love is Blind season 2, watch the iconic moment of Deepti and Shake’s wedding.
What happened during Shake and Deepti’s wedding?
On February 25th, 2022, in the finale episode of Love is Blind season 2, Deepti Vempati walks away from the wedding, and it’s best to say that she doesn’t regret it. In the final episode, she says, “I deserve someone who knows for sure. So, I’m choosing myself. I have no fucking regret.”
Since the beginning Love is Blind fans were sure Shake was not the man for Deepti, and we were always team Deepti. Throughout the show, we heard Shake compare Deepti to his aunt several times. After their families meet, Shake’s mother told him outright that he doesn’t deserve Deepti. In hindsight, he should have listened to his mom and broken off the relationship since even he wasn’t happy in it. It certainly would have saved him a rejection at the altar.
As embarrassing as it may have been for Shake, for viewers of Love is Blind and Deepti herself, her saying no was a huge moment of self love.

In the conversation with US Weekly, Deepti shares that there are a lot of things Shake had said to her face, and a lot of things he didn’t. Apparently, she heard many things from other cast members of the show as well. It’s best to say that Deepti doesn’t have any room for anyone in her life who doesn’t see her in the best way. She showed us that we all deserve a partner who is sure about us, becoming the biggest example of love in the show.

Before meeting Deepti, Shake shared about his necessity of physical attraction into a relationship. However, when the two met, they didn’t feel that attraction towards each other.
In conversation with BuzzFeed, Deepti confesses that both of them knew for sure that they lack physical intimacy and chemistry between them. It’s like they are forcing each other to be a part of a relationship. On the day of their massage date, she knew she couldn’t marry Shake.
She explains, “There was a pivotal moment after we had this massage date. It was really to instill some intimacy and to bring us closer together on that level — but it felt so disingenuous and like we were forcing it.”
Her last question to herself before deciding is, “I’m done trying. I’m over this. I just need to move forward and figure out what I want — instead of trying to figure out why he doesn’t want me, do I even want him?”
