Roshni and Corey wanted their Indian fusion wedding at The Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes to be a refection of timeless love and Raining Roses Productions helped to make that vision with fabulous floral and decor! A wonderful mandap is cascading from above. Jensen Larson Photography captures our delightful bride as she does her walk down the aisle in her Anita Dongre lengha with a white rose bouquet.

From the bride, on her favorite part of planning:
"I loved sharing unforgettable memories, laughs, and lots of opinions with my mom and sister. My mom is a fantastic designer, incredibly hospitable, with a sharp eye for the finer things in life, and my sister is a very honest and the most elegant person I know, so wedding planning was that much easier with these two by my side."
On the wedding style:
"Corey and I were college sweethearts and shared almost a decade of memories together and so we wanted our wedding to be a reflection of timeless love. My mom and I had been planning this special day since I was little girl and when Corey proposed on April 5, 2014 all the details that we had been talking about for years fell into place beautifully with the help of our dream team of vendors just eight months later. Corey and I have opposite personalities. He is the quiet, level headed one and he often describes me as fun-loving and spontaneous. We kept that in mind and wanted our theme to be not only a fusion style wedding, but one with elegance and glamour. Corey helped with some of the fine details, but he let my mom, sister, and I enjoy this time together to organize a wedding we had been planning for years. We wanted a traditional Indian ceremony because of the beautiful meaning behind the Sanskrit words that would be uniting us that day, but wanted to write our own vows to each other as well. I had always dreamed of wearing a white gown for part of my wedding day and because we had an Indian ceremony I surprised Corey with a white bridal gown and veil. We danced the night away with our close friends and family and ended the most perfect weekend with a sparkler sendoff. Our special weekend was truly unforgettable thanks to our amazing vendors, our sweet friends and loving family."
On a special moment:
"Our vows were the special and emotional part of our ceremony. Corey and I had written them and given them to my sister, Sonali. She had read them over and approved them and was in charge of giving them to us during the Varamala after we placed our wedding garlands on each other and the priest placed a unifying cotton thread around us to bless our union as husband and wife. We both cried unexpectedly and so did our family and friends. After we took our first seven steps together as husband and wife, my dad unexpectedly said "you may kiss the bride," and with that we sealed the most magical ceremony with our first kiss."
