Pea to Tree Events recently planned the most beautiful Hindu fusion event in Tampa, Florida, for bride and groom, Amrita and David, and we're unveiling all the delightful details today in special double feature! Rad Red Creative captured the stunning collection of images from the Guyanese-American bride's fairy tale affair, and we're starting off with a look at some of Amrita's gorgeous bridal details! From her jewelry to her ravishing, red lengha, it's the perfect peek into her and David's traditional Hindu ceremony, which you'll be seeing later today! We love the close up of the happy couple's wedding bands, cradled in the blushing bride's incredibly mehndi'd hands, and her gold and red eye makeup by Michele Renee The Studio. Before we jump into all the wedding wonders from Amrita and David's first of two ceremonies, head over to the Videos Blog for a look at their highlight reel created by the talented team from Paul Duhon Videography, and visit the complete gallery for some getting ready moments with the groom!
Maharani Amrita, on her Raja, David's, proposal:
"David proposed in our kitchen after I told him he would never propose. I jokingly told him he should use aluminum foil to make rings. I turned around and he was standing on one knee. It was the perfect proposal because David knows I don’t like being the center of attention and wanted a very low-key proposal.”
On shopping for the perfect wedding lengha:
"It was important to me to find a red lengha but not just any red. I wanted to find a deep, darker red. I found some inspiration online but it was actually quite challenging finding exactly what I was looking for in stores. My family and I went shopping for the groom's outfit and found my wedding lengha unexpectedly. It was simple but had just the right amount of detail."
On her hair and makeup:
"We used Michele Renee The Studio for all hair and makeup. I chose to do two different looks for each ceremony. My makeup for the Hindu ceremony was very bold and beautiful. I went for a softer look for the Christian ceremony."
