So many elements of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night's Dream came to mind as I perused through Ami and Ambrish's grand celebration. There are some weddings that land on the editorial desk that just whisks me away to a fairytale adventure! Those ones are my absolute favorite. Ami and Ambrish's Indian wedding was everything they could have dreamed of and more. With the help of the lovely ladies of Red Umbrella Event, the couple prepared to take that step into the soft petals. I am so in love with these first look pics! I can never get enough of them. All the love simply glows in our gallery by Banga Studios with all the live action being helmed by J. Diliyok Productions, LLC. (P.S. Get to know the bride with all the personal details tucked down below!)
Nashville, TN Indian Wedding by Banga Studios
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I met my husband through childhood friends. He lived in Virginia and I lived in Tennessee so I didn't see him again until 10 months later. I decided to ask him out through Facebook messenger. We spoke every day and met up once or twice a month in a different city. We would spend the weekend exploring new cities while we also got to know each other. I knew he was the one when we
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We drove for an hour to a remote location. He said it was a pit-stop on our way to another city and wanted to show me something. In Virginia, there are several places that have giant artworks that spell LOVE. He took me to the Humpback Bridge in Covington, VA to show me the LOVE spelled out by historic bricks, a gear from an old paper machine, a tree, and railroad ties. At first, I didn't see the LOVE but after taking a second look, I saw it. When I turned around, Ambrish was on his knees. After I said yes, we went to a restaurant where my family and friends were waiting to surprise me.
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
I loved our venue Marathon Music Works. When I first saw it, I could easily envision my wedding there. I loved its historic roots and the rustic look. It was different for any other venue I had seen. My hair and makeup were done by ReedMyLipstick. She was patient and listened to what I wanted. My hair and makeup couldn't have been more perfect. I went to India for a month to have my outfits custom made. My decor theme was simple. I wanted to incorporate greens, soft pinks, white and gold. I wanted minimal decor because the venue itself would be enough of a statement. I used Red Umbrella Event based in Clarksville, TN. Tejas and Sejal were absolutely amazing to work with. I felt taken care of throughout the entire wedding process. They were on top of anything and could problem solve without hesitation. They really did everything could to make the wedding planning easier for me. I couldn't have done it without them.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They absolutely loved the venue. It was like nothing they'd ever seen at a wedding. They also loved the donut dessert bar! The donuts were created by a local shop in Nashville called The Donut + Dog.
Such a fun couple! I have more of them coming up!
