Truth be told? This Big Day shared by Luminance Wedding Films had me tearing up as soon as I pressed play. Uniting two hearts as one, their wedding proved to be a significant celebration that paid tribute to tradition. It’s one of those love stories (and vows!) that’ll surely have you shedding a few happy tears. Share in the joy and press play for more!
From Luminance Wedding Films…Nirali and Robert are two souls that were meant to be together from day one. Not only were they born in the same hospital, but they were in the same music recitals as well. It was a relationship that would begin to blossom many, many years later. Robert’s proposal to Nirali took place at the Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale, where he played the grand piano and sang her favorite song, re-writing the last verse to ask for her hand in marriage. Some of those verses he incorporated into his vows, which you can hear in their wedding film. Robert and Nirali have so much respect, deep love and the most endearing fun. Each time they were together, they were dancing and having their own little party for two. This couple is truly all about having fun and living an adventures life. Having come from two completely different cultural backgrounds, Nirali and Rob never let these differences deter them. In fact, it was the most significant part of their wedding day. As the best man said it, quite well, “Mr. & Mrs. Markham, thank you for showing us all how two completely different worlds can come together and make one beautiful life.” And beautiful it is!
The Wedding was just as beautiful too. From the dark walnut Mandap to the gold painted bells which hung above the lovely couple this Hindu wedding was breath taking. The couple was married at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort under the stars of the warm, November Arizona sky. The ceremony began in the late afternoon with the traditional Bridegroom Processional of the Barat and concluded with a dark starry sky behind them and white billowing smoke from the sacred fire in front of them.
The Vidhi and Mendhi party were just as colorful as the ceremony. Nirali, giggled as she was covered in the cold Tumeric paste, a tradition Hindu brides undergo for that beautiful bridal glow. The Sangeet took place in the home of the brides family where guests mingled, ate and had a wonderful time watching and dancing with two belly dancers, who were a surprise to both the bride and groom. Needless to say, this wedding was one of beauty, grandeur, heart and lots of love! Congratulations to this lovely couple!
