First of all, we'd like to say, "Welcome home Jelly + Avneesh! We hope you had a fabulous and relaxing honeymoon in Bora Bora!"
Jelly + Avneesh had a spectacular wedding that included two wedding ceremonies: a Hindu and Western one. It was so beautiful to watch them honor both of their cultures and bring their families together for such a wonderful day. Their wedding was filled with so many lovely little details, colors and love. So much love.
The morning started with preparations for the Hindu ceremony. Both Jelly's mom and Avneesh's mom helped the bride get dressed in layers and layers of gorgeous fabric and family jewelry. It was beautiful to watch Avneesh's mom gracefully place bangles and necklaces on Jelly, a wedding tradition going back for generations. There was so much care put into Jelly's bridal outfit; the silk was perfectly folded, and her bangles stacked up her wrist like glittering gold coins. Jelly looked stunning.
Avneesh also had a wonderful, white wedding outfit that made him look like royalty. The groom's turban was ceremoniously placed on his head by his older cousin, and his late father was remembered with his portrait by Avneesh's side. Once dressed, Avneesh went up to the terrace of the JW Marriott, to await his bride for their first look.
When the two finally got to see each other, their faces lit up with excitement. Their wedding day had started, and they couldn't have been more thrilled to finally be in each other's arms! Total perfection.
After the first look, everyone drove to Treasure Island for family photos before the festivities began. There are so many wonderful moments from their wedding day we can't wait to share, so we'll be posting more photos during the week. To start, enjoy these moments from their wedding preparations and adorable first look!
As you can tell from the photos, these two are beautiful, inside and out! Next photos we'll post will feature the Baraat and Hindu wedding ceremony.
Congratulations Jelly + Avneesh!
