Jason loved Anu and Bharani’s wedding! Dancing in the streets, bright colors, beautiful decor, an awesome couple, and lots of love and laughter – what an amazing day! The wedding was at the Powel Crosley Estate with Sarah Lansky as the day of coordinator. Anu was a gorgeous bride! She had her hair and makeup done by Geetaz. Her red sari stood out brilliantly against the bridesmaids and the yellow decor at the reception. Flowers by Fudgie was the florist and Affairs in the Air set up the lighting. Jason had Van Tran with him as a second shooter during the ceremony to help capture all the fun events and traditions. To keep things simple for people visiting our blog to see Jason’s pictures, we didn’t share any of Van’s images here, but Jason said it was great to work with him and we appreciate his help!
The horse for the groom’s procession (the Baraat) was from Sunshine Carriages and the priest at the ceremony was Pandit Vishnu (813-728-7512). It was a meaningful ceremony with traditions such as the Jaimala where the bride and groom exchange flower garlands, the Agni Pradikshina where the bride and groom’s garmets are joined together, the Mangalphera or walk around the sacred fire, and the Saptapadi where the priest guides the bride and groom to take seven steps forward in their first act as a married couple. There was history and cultural tradition in each part of the start of their lives as husband and wife. What a wonderful foundation for their marriage!
The reception was outside in a tent from U.S. Tent Rental. I love the deep yellow color used for linens and decor! There were also candles and tall crystal candelabras. Dinner was from Milan Catering with a cake made by Publix. The music was from Dudha Productions and guests had fun in the photo booth from Shutterbooth. Jason was honored to be part of such a beautiful day for a terrific couple. Congratulations and thank you Anu and Bharani!
