Jessica and Ravi hosted an intimate and idyllic Indian and Western wedding ceremonies where their chemistry shined brightly in front of all their loved ones. Their Indian ceremony took place at the Coralville Marriott and Conference Center, where Prashe adorned the venue in a dazzling array of gold and ruby hues, with planning orchestrated by KIS (cubed) Events. Sparkling candles and fragrant red roses surrounded the ballroom, creating the ultimate romantic ambiance. Our adorable couple coordinated their ensembles, with Ravi in a champagne sherwani and Jessica in a royal red lehenga featuring stunning zari work. Bridal Elements Hair & Makeup gave Jessica a sleek updo and swirling mehendi, letting this Maharani’s radiant beauty shine through. Bridal Elements Hair & Makeup finished Jessica’s look with dewy coral blush, ruby lips, and mesmerizing smokey eyes. What a beauty. For the Western ceremony, Jessica slipped into an angelic white dress, and the twosome recited their emotional vows in front of their elated guests. The lovely bride told us, Music runs deep in my family, and my grandma was a professional pianist and still teaches to this day. She played a beautiful Debussy piece during our unity candle lighting and marriage license signing at the Des Moines wedding ceremony, and that was really special. How precious. For more lovely moments, head to the full gallery captured by Banga Studios for so much wedding inspiration.
