Ami had been working on her dream wedding day and night for 8 months now and here it was, finally, the day had arrived. She had put on her bridal shoes on and was ready to marry her prince charming Jainan. I was absolutely awestruck with the minutest details she had managed to gather for her wedding to be perfect. It was a destination wedding at the magnificent Ritz Carlton Amelia Island Florida as well her family members were flying down to attend her wedding.
The festivities started with the Pooja for both families in the morning, progressing to Haldi/Pithi which is the fun part of the ceremony. As the day progressed, in the evening the patio of the Golf club was light up under the sky with starry lights and colorful center table lamps. It was time for some garba raas and dandiya. The guests had a great time savoring the finger-licking Indian dishes and rejoicing to the beat of Gujarati music. We wouldn’t spill any more beans, go check it out for yourself.
