From the Bride... Evan and I met during a very busy time in our lives. He was in the process of expanding his business and I was applying to doctoral programs. It would seem that the odds were stacked against us, however, it now serves as a testament to our unique and special bond. After three years of dating, we knew we had found our perfect counterparts.  Evan surprised me with a getaway trip to Clearwater. What I thought was a graduation present, ended up being the gift of a lifetime.

Beyond our theme, it was important for our wedding to be an accurate reflection of who we are as people, and as a couple. Having both family and friends in Florida and New York, we easily narrowed down the region. Knowing that we wanted an outdoor spring ceremony, Miami became the inevitable choice. We selected W South Beach as the ambiance and décor impeccably matched our vision of a chic paradise wedding.
Our theme was modern and metallic. The chrome metallic accents easily allowed for the touches of glam, including the bedazzled shoes gifted to me by my little sister and maid of honor, the sparkles on the dress, and shimmer of the linens.  We were incredibly fortunate to have our monogram by Elevennote, which was incorporated on the stationary, ceremony sign, welcome bags, menu, and acrylic card box. Our silver foil accented place cards were placed over a mirrored table top adorned with glass frames of pictures from the weddings of our bridal party members and our grandparents.

W South Beach was the perfect venue for us as it had a perfect spot for each chapter in our day. Our getting ready suites were spacious, stunning, and provided great ocean views for pictures. The private pool was adorned with a mural that just screams Miami, perfect for the first look. While waiting for the festivities to begin, the guests were able to enjoy the dip their toes in the ocean. We wanted a transition from light to dark from ceremony to reception. The palm trees and lawn provided the perfect palate for elegance and the earthy marble accents of the Great Room allowed for the transition to modern and metallic glam.
We were adamant about being true to ourselves individually and as a couple during our ceremony. We recognize our cultures while being sure to highlight the important tenets of marriage that we cherish. We wanted it to be simple, yet deeply meaningful. We collaborated to create our customized ceremony and wrote our own vows. What can be seen simply as an acrylic wedding arch adorned with fresh, white flowers, crystals, and candles was actually a key requirement for us in our ceremony. This chuppah or mandap, is an important symbol in both cultures. Symbolic of our cross-cultural union. In both cultures it represents, with open walls, the home and life we will build as a married couple. Acknowledging an Indian tradition, we opted to have our parents stand with us to represent the each of the pillars, a sturdy foundation. 

We are fortunate to have many loved ones in our lives, but opted for a smaller intimate wedding. Our bridal party consisted only of family members and childhood friends. Evan had traditional groomsmen, but I wanted to honor three important women in my life so I opted to include not one but three titles of Maid of Honor, Matron of Honor, and Best Lady. Our flower girl and ring bearer were born just in time for our special day. Both were born in the year of our engagement and were able to share the aisle with their moms for our ceremony.
