We've got a treat today with the dual ceremony and reception of Jis and Amritha photographed by one of our Spotlight Vendors Kimberly Photography
! Our couple were married in sunny Tampa
over July 4th weekend. Kicking off their celebrations was a beautiful Catholic ceremony. Lining the pews were gold elephants and bright colored flowers adding the subtle touches that make up an Indian wedding.
Our bride looked stunning with a jeweled headband and beaded gown. The back of her dress was absolutely jaw dropping with a cutout window lined in beading. Kimberly Photography
did such a wonderful job capturing all of the details and emotions of this wedding!
Following their Catholic ceremony the couple had a traditional hindu ceremony. Draped in a pink and orange sari with flowers down her braid and a full matha patti, Amritha transformed into a picture perfect Indian bride. I absolutely adore the bright colored mandap with beading and bouquet with a floral Ganesh in the background- stunning!
The bride and groom share how they got engaged:
On the evening of their five-year anniversary, Jis and Amritha decided to go out for dinner. Jis suggested they check out the Christmas lights at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens before dinner. It was a cold and damp night, and as they walked toward the botanical gardens through Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, they came across a beautifully lit pavilion in the middle of a pond. Jis said the spot looked interesting and they should take a photo there since it was so pretty.He took a selfie of them on his camera phone, pretended to check it and then showed Amritha, saying, “I don’t know, it looks like something’s missing…”
Instead of showing her the selfie they had just taken, he had pulled up a photo he had previously taken of himself, kneeling with a ring, and with the words “Amritha, will you marry me?” across the bottom of it. Amritha was surprised, so the first word she uttered was a confused “What?” But then she followed up with “Of course!”
Thank you to Kimberly Photography
