Even though the skies have cleared, my mind is still on summer. We have a couple of lovely summer weddings for you this week and I will leave it up to you to see which one catches your fancy. Both unique, both stylish, and both with a sense of flair. Well, what else would you expect when you have Square Root Designs behind all of the ahhhhmazing décor?!
Our first submission comes from Amita, who met her hubby, Rahul, in college and got married to him almost 10 years later on the 4th of July. Fireworks were definitely in order!
From Amita : All of our wedding clothes and jewelry shopping was done in Delhi and Hyderabad, India within 5 days. Our wedding was a combination of cultures from North and South India. I am from Rajasthan and the groom from Hyderabad. We wanted to have a fairy tale wedding that was stress free and fun for everyone. We had a traditional wedding with all the week long festivities which ended with the Sangeet, Ceremony and Reception. We also merged some western traditions, such as the incorporation of bridesmaids and groomsmen, and the throwing of the bouquet, into the festiviites. The Sangeet was held at my home in Hemet, CA on July 2, 2009. We had approximately 200 people attend. The event was held in the backyard and it was a beautiful and very fun event.
More tidbits from our beautiful bride : The Ceremony and reception were held on July 4 at the Hyatt hotel in Long Beach, CA. During the baraat, groom came in on a white horse accompanied by a huge procession. The ceremony followed with the tranditional walking around the fire, exchange of garlands, wearing of mangal sutra, and exchange of rings. There was a light hearted and sweet atmosphere as the pundit joked around with bride and groom during the ceremony. The Bidai was held by the Lagoon and the bride and groom were taken away in a Cinderella horse drawn carriage.
Aren't these shots of Amita just gorgeous? Amita's hair and make-up was done by Jeannie Jefferies, of Couture Beauty, and Yogi Patel, of Global Photography captured her magnificiently. They are the kinda shots Amita's mom with love and her future daughter will cherish.
