Rosanna weds Christopher – Fusion Wedding Photographed by Peter Nguyen Photography

Rosanna Barsati and Christopher Fontana, both attorneys, met at a local restaurant in South Florida. A belly dancer by night, Rosanna was performing at Cedars restaurant where Christopher was helping a friend in the kitchen. Christopher asked his friend about Rosanna, the two went on a date, and the rest was history!

After dating for about five months, the couple planned a trip to Sicily, Italy, with Christopher’s parents. Rosanna and Christopher drove to the top of Mount Etna, the world’s most active volcano. While taking in the awe-inspiring scenery, Chris nonchalantly asked Rosanna to marry him. It took a few moments and the drive back down the mountain for it to sink in, but Rosanna knew she was an engaged woman!

Wedding festivities began with a mehndi celebration at Rosanna’s mother’s home. Rosanna’s mom and family decorated the home while tassa drum and hit music created a festive atmosphere.

Given the couple is from the Orlando area, they chose the Henry P. Leu Gardens to be their wedding venue. Rosanna’s favorite flower is the rose, so it was only fitting they married in the venue’s Rose Garden! Decor was kept simple as the garden was so picturesque with handmade touches to the arch by Rosanna’s mother and friends. Rosanna’s father was the officiant for the wedding ceremony adding a meaningful and personal touch to the occasion.

The dinner and reception were held at the place where it all began – Cedars Restaurant! Rosanna’s mom and friends created beautiful centerpieces of pink and white roses. The bride and groom danced to the classic Frank Sinatra song “Fly Me to the Moon.” Guests celebrated into the night to a medley of Arabic, top 40s Reggaeton, and Indian Chutney music.

Rosanna and Christopher assure couples planning a wedding quickly that it can be done, so don’t stress when planning the wedding of your dreams!

Nadia Weds Prem Indian Wedding at Premier Event Halls Photographed by Studio Dew Drops

Nadia and Prem’s Suwanee, Georgia, wedding was a humble affair. Nadia, a model turned entrepreneur, is founder of Blush by Nadia. Prem, also an entrepreneur, runs his own choreography school. The two met at a fashion show through their mutual friend, DJ Bobby. At this show, Nadia provided makeup for the models while Prem organized the entire event. Quite unlike the end of the story, there were no initial sparks or love at first sight. Their meeting was quickly forgotten. It was only later when Prem saw Nadia’s photo on Facebook that he thought of asking her to model for an upcoming fashion show he was hosting. It was at their second meeting when firecrackers did spark and the two began chatting. One thing led to another, and Nadia and Prem began dating. It was at the Sushmita Sen Show of Empowerment where Prem proposed.

The wedding was a simple affair planned by Nadia, Prem and a few of their professional wedding planner friends. The venue of the Nikaah was indoors at Premiere Event Hall. Pre-wedding festivities included a mehndi and sangeet that were held at Prem’s uncle’s house. The wedding was celebrated with much fanfare with Bollywood music being the highlight. There were notable performances by Nadia, Prem, and his friends. Prem’s choreography team too handled the sangeet well with one hour of non stop performances that the guests truly enjoyed. This was definitely the big highlight of the wedding. The entire act done by Prem’s team showed how the couple met and how their love led them to the wedding stage.

The couple recommends that everyone should enjoy their wedding and be sure to truly cherish the wedding planning and festivities as much as the wedding. After all, the journey as beautiful as the destination itself.

Reshma Weds Roshan Indian Wedding at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Photographed by Castaldo Studios

The beauty of life is that you never know how you might meet your life partner. Sometimes all you need is a right swipe, like Reshma Patel and Roshan Patel. The beautiful couples met through a dating app.

After dating for a while, at a weekend getaway, Roshan found the perfect moment to propose Reshma. In front of a fountain, under beautiful oak trees, Roshan got down on one knee and asked Reshma to marry him.

Reshma Weds Roshan Indian Wedding at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Photographed by Castaldo Studios

The couple chose Hyatt Regency at Grand Cypress, Orlando, Florida for the wedding; and the SUN ‘n FUN International Fly-In Expo in Lakeland, Florida for the reception. Reshma’s brother Neil, who owns his own event company, NJP Events and Design, along with Eventrics Weddings, planned the wedding.

Reshma and Roshan had separate pre-wedding ceremonies in their hometowns. Roshan had a Vidhi ceremony in his family home. The bride’s family hosted a Mehendi night and a Vidhi ceremony. For the Mehendi night, their family home’s backyard was transformed into a mini Indian village, decorated with colorful flowers and lanterns. They also hung colorful torans to add a more traditional touch.

The wedding ceremony was held in the Grand Cypress ballroom of Hyatt. Ganesha statues at the entrance welcomed the guests into a crimson red draped room, decorated with brass diyas and red and pink roses. The aisle was covered in parts, leaving an ombre effect as you went closer to the mandap. The first part had large fresh floral bouquets with red and white roses mixed with hydrangeas and lilies. The second part of the aisle was covered with fresh rose petals gradually fading into white.

The mandap was decorated with floating floral chandeliers with traditional brass bells hanging with white and green wisteria flowers. And the backdrop was a screen layered with candles, silver and gold candelabras, and gold elephants.

Their starry-night themed wedding reception was a black-tie event. The décor included fresh florals, mirrors, candelabras, candles, and a black and white dance floor. As all the other wedding events were colorful, they wanted a more classic and romantic vibe for their reception.
