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. 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.

It is our pleasure to present inspiring and unique Indian wedding decorations using fresh flowers by Nikun Events. Flowers are symbols of a new beginning, beauty, joy, prosperity and auspicious blessings of love. Since flowers represent the natural within us, they are central to any Indian wedding defining the mood, sensibility, and theme of the wedding. According to Indian traditions, each flower has its significance. Red roses are very auspicious and signify purity, protection and valour. Marigolds, widely used in Hindu rituals, represent the Sun, the source of energy and are also the flowers of prayer for Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi, the perfect couple. The Mandap, four-pillar structure with a canopy, is the most sacred, fascinating, enthralling and attractive site of a wedding. This is where the wedding rituals take place. Both the pillars and canopy are intricately decorated with fresh flowers, and the reigning colors are red, orange and yellow. The reception is another event at Indian weddings where floral decor plays a significant role, specifically for the centerpieces and stage. The centerpiece can make a bold statement and define the overall theme of the wedding, while a stage decorated by fresh flowers makes the entire event come to life. Another widely used flower at Indian weddings is fragrant rose petals. From a design or sprinkling down the aisle or as decor on a table or stage, rose petals add to the splendour and majesty of the event.
