It was the first time we’ve had the pleasure of documenting two weddings for the same couple, in the same weekend! Mike and Meghan celebrated with two weddings at the Rosen Centre last month, and we are so honored to have been a part of it all! What a fun weekend. You can read more about Mike & Meghan’s love story during their getting-to-know-you session.
The weekend was a celebration of the creation of a new family. It was also the merging of families and traditions. On Friday, they participated in a lovely outdoor Christian ceremony that was officiated by Mike’s Uncle. They did a first look beforehand and were able to spend some time with each other before the Friday evening event. A nice dinner with close friends and family followed.
On Saturday, the amazing Hindu wedding took place, steeped in tradition. The ceremony was beautiful and full of ritual and vibrant color. The brighter the better! Mike’s procession, the baraat, took place with him atop a red Cadillac convertible. Well, it is Florida! The wedding ceremony took place inside the Rosen up on stage under the mandap, where Meghan’s father performed the ceremony with Meghan’s mom by his side. Meghan wore her mom’s wedding dress, saree, during the ceremony and then changed into her own saree for the reception. Both dresses were gorgeous. Meghan was a glowing, radiant and elegant bride. Mike was quite handsome in his kurta for the ceremony. All the men changed into suits for the reception.
We’ve seen a lot of receptions in our days, and this one just about tops them all. There was such jubilation!! Everyone danced and celebrated in such an authentic way. It was a true celebration and not just a party. You could feel the excitement and energy in the room.
We hope you enjoy the slideshow and images we’ve posted that will give you a glimpse into these amazing couple of days. Enjoy!
