Avantika & Sandeep

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!

Katie & Greg

We've seen a lot of beach weddings. So, when Katie contacted us in February about her Marco Island Marriott celebration for the following November, we knew we could expect a few things: sunshine, sand, waves, and romance.

What we didn't know? Katie is an absolute STUNNER, whose sense of fashion and seriously-better-looking-than-Prince-Charming groom (Greg) would make for an unforgettable wedding!

Seriously? Could this BE any more perfect?

Katie perfectly paired her Lazaro dress with Badgley Mischka shoes and jewelry from Rent the Runway (how brilliant is that?!). 

Katie got her hair done at The Spa at the Marriott, and she did HER OWN MAKE-UP. Repeat: she did her own make-up. This girl? Talented. Katie's ladyfriend (in the photo on the right) is her Matron of Honor, Paige.

So then, we met Greg. You know how sometimes, a couple just fits so perfectly together, it's like kismet for them to have found each other? Yeah. Greg is every bit as handsome as Katie is beautiful.

And then, before we knew it, it was time to head to the beach!

And then? They did.

Oh, did I mention, this ridiculously romantic wedding was happening on one of the most beautiful beaches in the country? Marco Island. 

Special thanks to the JW Marriott Marco Island for hosting us!
