Today we’re celebrating the joyous union of Merline and Jason. We were swooning with admiration as Merline was beautified by the masterful brushes of Hilda & Co. Merline’s lovely face resembled a Bollywood goddess with her shimmering eyes and rosebud lips. Her fairytale white gown was the stuff dreams are made of, featuring the most incredible beading and floral appliques. Handsome Jason also was fashionable in a sleek tux that would make James Bond green with envy. As guests made their way into the holy chapel, they were waiting with breathless anticipation for the couple of the hour to make their grand reveal. Soon, Merline’s bridesmaids floated down the aisle, who were stunning in their own right in hot pink saris. The groomsmen were also dapper gents in crisp grey suits accessorized with pink ties. What a styling group! One of the beloved memories of the day was when the gorg bride made her way down the aisle with poise and grace. As the lovebirds took their sacred vows, Bella Lumi captured all the beloved moments with their sensational snaps. Coming up next is the colorful and energetic reception soiree at the Tuscan Courtyard. While you wait, peruse the full gallery captured by Bella Lumi.
