Dorado, Puerto Rico Indian Fusion Wedding by Ray Roman Films

Welcome back, darlings! The charming love story of Debora & Omar continues, and we have all the details for your enjoyment. For this second installment, we'll be joining our lovebirds at a First Look photoshoot leading to their big wedding ceremony, so get ready to be amazed! Ray Roman Films took advantage of all the beauty surrounding Su Casa - Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, to immortalize the most beautiful and intimate moments of this lovely couple right before uniting their lives in marriage. And all that we can say is that we absolutely adored every single shot! After the photoshoot, it was time to carry on with the wedding ceremony thoroughly orchestrated by Rosalina Torres and fully decored by Emilio Olabarrieta. This winning combination resulted in a magical setting more than perfect for this grand occasion. There was so much beauty all over the place, but it was Debora who had all eyes on her! She glided into the scene, almost floating, wearing a white wedding dress from Pronovias, and we were utterly impressed by how elegant, and stylish her bridal gown was! Just take a look at the long beautiful veil. Simply amazing! Following this line of elegance and glamour, Ingrid Rivera designed a fabulous makeup and hairstyle for Debora that praised her innate beauty, making her look like a princess! Check more of this mesmerizing ceremony in today's gallery. It is an absolute visual delight that you don't want to miss! So, make sure to take a look at it!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in our first year of residency (post medical school training for our respective specialties). I knew he was the one when he started speaking fluent Spanish to me!
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
We had invited all of our closest friends from all over the USA to our house in Phoenix to celebrate his birthday (or so I thought). We have a beautiful balcony in our house that overlooks the mountains and right at sunset, after we all sang him a happy birthday on the balcony he said "I made a wish, let's see if it comes true" and he got down on one knee and proposed. Nobody knew! It was a surprise to all of us.
 
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.
We hired a wedding planner from Puerto Rico and she helped us with everything. Experience was great!
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
R. I looked at all the designers websites and Instagram pages and fell in love with Ali Xeeshan.
I knew I wanted a bright multi colored lehenga for the mehndi and a traditional red/gold one for the reception.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Planning this together as a couple and all the trips to PR.
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
I think they loved how unique it was and how involved we were in the whole process. They also loved that they felt taken care of the whole weekend and that everyone had so much joy and love for one another.
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Our first look, the speeches.
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Enjoy the process and don't stress over the little things (easier said than done).
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Thank you so much for featuring us! We are truly honored.

Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Nittin told me we were going to meet his mom at the Planetarium in Chicago, right on Lake Michigan.   We got there and waited in the lobby because it was 15 degrees outside (gotta love January in Chicago!).  30 minutes later, he said his mom was running late because she was trying to find parking; I didn't think anything of it because the parking lot was really packed that day!  Finally he said, "She's here!" We quickly run outside where holds my hand and walks me over to the lake to propose to me - I couldn't believe it! People around us were cheering and applauding! He hired a photographer to capture the proposal with the Chicago skyline in the background. It was absolutely perfect.
 
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.
We wanted to get married that summer and feel like we were guests at our own wedding. Ali Phillips at Engaging Events by Ali made it all possible, she planned our entire wedding in 3 months!  We went with her recommendations for DJ, Decor, Photography, Video, Hair and Make-up.                                         
 
Ali very patiently helped me vet about 30 different photographers before we landed on Banga Studios from Toronto.  I was looking for a photographer who could handle editing all the beautiful color you see in Indian wedding photos. Gurminder Banga flew down to Chicago for our engagement shoot and he captured photos that looked like they were straight out of a magazine. His team shot our wedding day and there are so many lovely photos that it was so tough to decide which ones would make it into the album!
 
Mark Wynimko from Wynn Films was our videographer.  His creative filming technique and music choice was exceptional - you can tell he loves what he does and is an expert at it!
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
Nittin and I both looked forward to dance practice for our first dance with DeMaira Dance Studios.  Joe and Kathy DeMaira were excellent instructors and made our classes so much fun. Our first dance went incredibly well and our guests loved it! 
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
There's so many aspects of our wedding that our guests really enjoyed! Sri Krishna Jois officiated our wedding ceremony and he was a hit! He did an amazing job explaining the different customs as part of the Hindu marriage ceremony and made everyone laugh!  He seamlessly performed the ceremony switching between four different languages: Sanskrit, Telugu, Hindi and English. I feel so fortunate that he was a part of our wedding day.
 
Food overall was definitely a highlight.  After the ceremony, we had lunch catered by Seven Spices Indian Cuisine and they served all my favorite Andhra specialties which our guests loved! For dinner, Gaylord Fine Indian Cuisine served innovative North Indian dishes family-style.
 
The decor stood out because of the seating arrangement in the ballroom and the neutral palette with a pop of color (coral to be exact!). Erin McDonald from Erin McDonald Design made the place look incredible and we were even able to re-purpose our mandap which he transformed into a fairy tale, garden-like setting for the reception.
 
More recently, Nittin and I (ok, maybe it was really just me) have become to love pie and we wanted to share this with our guests on our special day.  As a wedding favor, we had individual pie slices with the note "A Sweet Ending to a New Beginning." Bang Bang Pie & Biscuits catered these sweet treats.
 
The one complaint one of my closest friends had was that the entire day was on schedule (thank you, Ali Phillips!). 
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
During the wedding ceremony our priest, Sri Krishna Jois, asked all our guests to raise both hands and bless us.  It was such a wonderful thing to see the entire ballroom filled with the people who want the best for you and they showed it with this very meaningful gesture all at the same time.  I will never forget this moment.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
My engagement band and wedding ring were custom designed by Jose Torres of EcoKarat Jewelry.  I wanted a non-traditional engagement ring and what he created was absolutely stunning! To this day, I still can't stop staring at it!
 
During the wedding ceremony, I wore a gold choker that has been in our family for a few generations; it was an honor to wear the family heirloom on this special day.
 
Rosie Scianna of Makeup By Rosie was fantastic! It was so hard to find a makeup artist whose makeup philosophy matched mine. She believes in you looking like yourself and enhancing your natural features and not only does she believe it, but she's able to create a look that aligns with it as well!
 
In lieu of a traditional guest book, I found a watercolor painting of the Chicago skyline for our guests to sign.  I knew a guest book would sit in some shelf that we would rarely look at so a painting was the perfect option! During cocktail hour, the painting was available for guests to leave a note and I had this sign placed next to it:
 
Please sign our guest book.
 
Chicago is very special to us.  It's where we met, fell in love, and tried olive oil ice cream on our first date.
 
We wanted to capture the memories of our special day with messages from our favorite people on this painting.
 
Love, Sireesha & Nitti 

Don't miss the upcoming wedding reception party, ladies! You're going to love it!
