{Katie & Vish @ Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay}

Here's my 3rd and final posting on all of Katie and Vish's wedding prettyness!  After their Indian wedding ceremony in the morning, it was time for one more style change!  I love that they incorporated both of their cultures into their wedding celebration.  Katie had custom painted wine glasses for the girls and beer mugs for the guys, that totally looked like each of them!  Let's talk about Peanut.  She's their little 3 lb 13 year old adorable little chihihuah flower dog:-)  Before the girls dressed in their gray short dresses, Katie had super cute orange floral robes for them.   Katie looked stunning in her gown detailed with lace and beading, and gold Jimmy Choo's.  Vish, and the boys were looking handsome in their gray suits and orange socks and ties.  Vish's cuff links were tiny chihihuah's:-)  

Katie and Vish said their I do's in a beautiful candle lit ceremony.  Their reception decor had 3 type of centerpieces; short and very tall silver vases filled with orange and white florals.  They had an amazing sweets table with all kids of different little desserts and macaroons.  They made their grand entrance on a Rickshaw!  I will say, one of the most unique things we have seen, Vish sang his first dance song to Katie!  Toasts, dances, and so many sweet moments.  We snuck out to top floor for some outdoor pics and this humidity fogs up on lenses but I think it created a pretty cool effect.

{Katie & Vish Indian Wedding Ceremony @Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay}

Saturday mornings festivities started with getting ready with Katie and the girls and Vish and the guys.  I love the deep, rich colors, jewelry and makeup that are involved.  The Baraat is the arrival of the groom, and traditionally on an elephant or white horse.  Well, when you have a Mazerati who needs a horse:-)  Once Vish arrived, the Jaan is where Katie's family welcomes him before the ceremony.  In Hindu weddings there are a lot of traditions that signify the importance of the marriage commitment.  Their officiant did an amazing job of explaining what each of the elements signified, it was so interesting!  Since Vish's family is Indian and Katie's family is America, we also did an entire American wedding that evening so that will be coming next!!
