Anyhow, to take my mind far, far, far away from the storm outside, I have holed up in my house with my puppy comfortably sleeping by the fire.  All I can seem to think about these days is summer and warm weather, so when I happened upon this unique Indian wedding, I knew it was going to make the perfect feature.

Amita and Abheeshek grabbed their closets friends and family and got married on a cruise from Tampa to Cozumel.  Their wedding was inspired and based on the sea, so their color palette was naturally turquoise with hints of white and gold.

From the bride : Abhee and I had both discussed a cruise/ destination wedding because it was something that my parents wanted.  Abhee and his family agreed and the process began!  We searched many options from resorts to cruises to even Disney!  After searching and figuring prices, our best choice was a cruise.  We immediately got with a travel agent and started to get prices.

After we chose the cruise option, we had to pick a destination of port and from there we chose the cruise line.  The best option for us was Royal Caribbean – Grandeur of the Seas.  It set sail on December 17, 2009 and went to Cozumel, Mexico and returned back to Tampa on December 21, 2009.  We got the chance to actually go to Baltimore and check out the actual cruise boat and see the locations of where each event would take place on board.  It was amazing!  We got to speak with the chefs and other coordinators on board who helped out with the planning process.

Shandro Photo was on hand to take some fantastic shots that truly captured the essence of their wedding. I mean, this looks like SO MUCH FUN!



Much more heading your way tomorrow….staaaaaaaay tuned!
