Shanna and Kirill Wedding Story

Shanna and Kirill Wedding Story The marriage celebration of the couple is unique. They married amidst the pandemic. However, they celebrated their first anniversary at the reception party with all their loved ones.  Shanna Khan, a Registered Nurse and Kirill Kiselchuk, a Mortgage Closer started dating back in 2015 when they were teenagers. After 4 years Kirill proposed to Shanna in 2019 at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, their favorite place, standing on the bridge of the waterfall. It was an expected moment that came with an unexpected feeling of emotion and fulfilment. Shana said ‘I do’. The couple planned to get married in 2020. However, the deadly pandemic compelled them to refrain from ceremonies involving many people. Abiding by the Covid norms, they had a private ceremony on 23 May 2020 with only 10 people. No pre-wedding festivities could be organized. However, the two lovebirds made their relationship official following the rituals.  As the situation began to improve and restrictions were relaxed, Shana and Kirill decided to celebrate their wedding with their family and friends on the day of their first anniversary, 23 May 2021. This time they could have the festivities and enjoy the company of the close ones. There were 100 guests and the venue was Gale Mansion, Minneapolis. The couple carefully chose the central location keeping in mind the convenience of the guests of both sides. And, Minneapolis is a specially significant place for them as both Shanna and Kirill grew up there. The reception party was in the evening and the decoration was simple and the color theme was all white.  It had an arch decorated with tulle and lighted candles on the floor with flower petals. Classical music was being played along with Bollywood hits and Latin songs. The first dance was with ‘How Would You Feel’ by Ed Sheeran and Shanna and her father danced on ‘My Wish’ by Rascal Flatts. They celebrated a year later. They did not take the help of any wedding planner as the family of Shanna helped in the preparation. It was an intimate party with close ones who were absent during the wedding. However, their blessings and best wishes were with them.         Shanna and kirill fusion wedding at Gale Mansion BANQUET HALLS : Gale Mansion612-870-1662 | BEAUTICIANS : OnSite Beautiful612-217-1113 | CATERING : Gale Mansion612-870-1662 | PHOTOGRAPHER/VIDEOGRAPHY : Alexandra Robyn Photo + Design952-843-8630 , Tinker Yan763-280-2233 Romantic moment captured by Alexandra Robyn Photo + DesignGroom with groomsmenFusion wedding banquet hall Gale Mansion Indian Bride take a look on her wedding gown Wow!! feeling after looking indian bride in wedding gown by bridesmaid Beautiful Indian Wedding Ring welcome wedding name plate Indian wedding guest Welcoming Gorgeous Indian wedding Couple Indian wedding guest looking at Indian Couple Indian Bride Dancing with her father Fusion wedding guest enjoying dj Party Fusion wedding couple performing their dance in reception ceremony Guest enjyoing dance partyOutlook of Gale Mansion hall Fusion wedding Invitation card with bridal wedding accessories Very Pretty Diamond righ and earing with blue gem stone Happy Indain bride captured by Alexandra Robyn Photo + Design Indian Bride getting ready for her wedding Groom knotting tie Family Photoshoot by Tinker Yan marvellous Wedding gown Indian bride getting ready for her big day Beautiful Makeup and hair style by OnSite Beautiful Indian Bride possing for photoshoot Indian Bride giving hug to her friend Great moment captured by Alexandra Robyn Photo + Design Indian bride and bridesmaid with wedding bouquet Indian Couple First look Gorgeous Indian bride capture Love Bird with wedding bouquet wedding couple ready in wedding dress What a lovely moment of Love birds Wedding couple kissing to eachother Perfect Indian wedding Bride in white gown Indian Wedding Cake Beautiful Flower Decoration Indian couple posing for outdoor photoshoot Fusion couple's Romantic moment captured by Alexandra Robyn Photo + Design Loving fusion couple Wedding couple in dancing mood

Uthara And Michael

Love transcends all borders and creates an eternal bond between two loving souls. The marriage of Uthara Rajasekhar and Michael Burceseu is a living example where traditional Indian and East European cultures and traditions met for a lifetime partnership based on love and respect for each other. It was 10 April 2021, when the two Doctors of Orlando tied the knot in presence of their family members and friends.  Couple Posing For a photoshoot It’s a small world. Uthara and Michael went to the University of Central Florida and even had a class together! But they never got introduced to each other. It was at the Medical School that they met again and the strangers became friends and gradually fell in love with each other.  After three and a half years of dating, Michael proposed to Uthara at Crete. After a trek on the Samaria Gorge, he asked Uthara to bring out some snacks from the basket. To the utter surprise, Uthara found a Sapphire ring inside the basket. Michael designed it for his sweetheart and proposed to her with that ring in the picturesque location.  The marriage took place at the Holy Trinity Reception Center of Orlando in the presence of 180 guests. Among the pre-wedding ceremonies, Mehndi was celebrated with great enthusiasm amidst the color theme of gold and burgundy.  The marriage had the unique factor of being the first Nair/Menon Hindu Wedding in Central Florida. Following the traditional white, gold and yellow color theme of Keralite marriages, there were yellow and white fresh flowers at the marriage ceremony. Followed by the traditional Hindu wedding in the morning, a civil wedding took place in the evening.  The reception had a beautiful blend of Indian and East European traditions and cultures. There were fresh flowers of red, pink and orange colors along with matching centerpieces. The couple danced to the hit Bollywood song Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. Two lovers put their hands together for a wonderful journey ahead.
