Let's talk Indian weddings. More specifically, Avantika & Sandeep's Ritz-Carlton wedding in Naples, Florida. The lovely, family-oriented culture is complimented by the bold colors, sparkly dresses, and gorgeous people that come together to celebrate new marriages! And of course, no Indian wedding would be complete without the bride's awesome henna, done a couple of days before the main celebration!
And here, my dears, is the lovely Avantika.
An Indian bride is traditionally dressed by her female relatives. It was so sweet to see!
Avantika's other half? The kind, outgoing, cute-as-a-button Sandeep. We just adore him, and his taste - talk about handsome!
And before we knew it, it was time to take the groom to see his gorgeous bride!
After the First Glance, the bride & groom separated for some solo celebration with their respective friends and family members. Check out how cute these ladies looked!
The traditional Baraat for the groom was so fun!
After the families welcomed each other, it was time for the marriage ceremony to begin. We headed indoors, as the gorgeous Mandap was waiting for us in one of the Ritz-Carlton ballrooms.
After a day of ceremony, they were married!
The day was done, and there was nothing left to do...but party :)
One of the most exciting parts of the evening was when the bridesmaids started a dancing flash mob, and ALL the guests joined in... just for the bride to find out that the groom had planned it all when he joined the mob as the lead dancer!
We were so lucky to share in Avantika & Sandeep's special wedding weekend!
