Keyana and Nirav

‘Sharing is caring’ … this proverb was true for the couple Keyana and Nirav. They shared their aspirations and dreams. The common thread of strong belief in family unity, values, and culture strengthened their bonding. Deeply immersed in love and respect for each other, they decided to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife.

Both Keyana Vyas and Nirav Patel went to the University of Florida. They had often crossed paths, but had never become close. After being formally introduced by a common friend, however, they grew closer together—and love bloomed. Ultimately, he proposed to her at Morro Bay, California, at the beach, overlooking the sea. Before that, however, Nirav had met with Keyana’s grandparents and had sought their blessing. Both being truly family persons, the proposal also took place in front of Keyana’s cousins and sister.

Their prayers were answered in the form of the perfect venue for the couple: Lake Mary Events Center at Lake Marie, Florida. It is a beautiful ballroom, with a majestic lake as its backdrop. Like all their common interests, the couple jointly agreed on the venue.

Keyana’s family took an active part in the marriage preparation. They met the organizers and vendors; and the entire process was fun and festive for everyone. The pre-wedding ceremonies were close-family affairs and included some close friends. There was a Mehndi night with Pithi and Grah Shanti. The theme for the Pithi and Grah Shanti decorations was simple yet elegant. There were colourful garlands amidst a bright, beautiful background.

Mehndi night was a glittering ceremony with centerpieces of floating flowers, and magenta and gold curtains with white and green flower drapery. There were floral frames perfectly designed for taking photos.

Finally, the day of days came on May 23, 2021. The couple tied the knot in a beautiful morning ceremony. The theme and décor were a perfect synchronization of Indian tradition and western elegance. The central aisle had elephants at the entry point; and pink flower petals covered the aisle. The ballroom had white drapery with magenta, light pink, white, and green flowers surrounding the Mandap.

The big windows behind the Mandap presented a beautiful view of the lake and its surrounding greenery. All 175 guests witnessed the marriage, which was held amidst a beautiful, serene backdrop. Nirav arrived in a classic white jeep with doors and an unhinged roof. The music was an assimilation of Bollywood songs, Punjabi songs, and Garba music; and the family members particularly loved to dance to the Garba numbers.

One of the many exceptional parts of the Keyana-Nirav wedding was that the reception took place the night before the wedding. The starry night theme was beautifully created and brought to life at Altamonte Springs, Florida with silvers, purples, and blues, amidst a black backdrop; paired with sparkling LED lights, and centerpieces with candles and flowers. The stage had a beautiful cream-colored couch with blue and silver cushions, matching the color scheme.

There were old and new hip-hop and pop songs with Bollywood party songs. Keyana’s family put up an incredible dance presentation that left even the bride awestruck.

The wonderful wedding and the reception the previous night included a melodious surprise: live flute playing. This created the perfect ambience for the pledging of eternal love and the connection of these two lovers, just like the flute of Shri Krishna created the magic of love.

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.
