Ronisha and Vishal
Anything worth having is always worth the wait. For Ronisha and Vishal, their long-distance relationship was a test to see how far love can travel. The virtual world brought them together, but the real world tugged at their heartstrings. The first time Vishal flew out to meet Ronisha, it was a meaningful encounter. The next four-and-a-half-years went by with the two taking many trips back and forth between Orlando and Maryland and proving that when the love is real, distance only matters to the mind, not the heart.
For the proposal, Vishal picked Ronisha up from BWI airport, and on the pretext that it was his birthday, insisted on going to the MGM Casino at the National Harbor. Though Ronisha was too tired to go anywhere, she still accompanied him. Vishal took her to the rooftop of MGM Casino, where the entire area was decorated with blushing flowers and sweet-smelling candles. Without delaying any further, he surrendered his heart and asked for one chance to keep her happy for a lifetime. Their beautiful moments together were perfectly captured by the private photographer Vishal hired.
The couple hired a wedding planner for an elaborate Indian wedding affair. Pre-nuptial events included the Chanla Matli (engagement ceremony), Mehndi, and Garba. From deciding the wedding theme and venue, booking caterers, choosing decorations, sending invitations, and performing traditional rituals, Ronisha and Vishal enjoyed every moment spent together, smiling and appreciating everything.
Ready for their happily-ever-after, Ronisha and Vishal’s wedding took place at the Omni Championsgate, Orlando. The couple went with a romantic vintage glam theme with the bridal party in coral and mint green hues. Vishal arrived for his baraat in a Rolls Royce Dawn with his close friends, fraternity brothers and family members. A local football team that was staying at the Omni Championsgate enthusiastically joined the baraat dancing and enjoying the Bollywood songs that accompanied the baraat. The entire baraat kneeled down for a huddle and exploded into a massive celebration. With old and new Bollywood songs playing along, Ronisha and Vishal’s wedding included swoon-worthy, tear-inducing, and heartfelt moments that melted the hearts of the 450 guests attending.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the reception dancing to Bollywood and Hip Hop hits. The newlyweds enjoyed a first dance to “My Heart Will Go On” from the movie Titanic, followed by a mother-son duet to “Pehla Nasha” and a father-daughter duet to “Mere Papa.” Next, the groom surprised the bride with his hot moves along with his friends on the dance floor. As guests headed to their respective tables, two large wood panels read “Travel to your seats,” symbolizing how long-distance can never separate two hearts who care for each other. The guests took home a luggage tag with their names and table numbers as a memento along with a lot of happy and fun-filled memories.
