Sometimes the love of your life is a childhood friend you grew up with. Sometimes it’s someone that lives 5,000 miles away in another country — as was the case with Vishesh and Renu. Hailing from Alberta, Canada and Ocala, Florida, respectively, their fates crossed in Albany, New York during medical residency. The rest, as they say, was history.
Just as of historic proportions was their wedding decor. Set at the Ritz Carlton in Amelia Island in Florida, it was already off to a great start. What made it even better was the ocean view and the sea breeze as the bride and groom tied the knot in an intimate beachfront ceremony. The mandap was draped with blush pink chiffon fabric and enhanced with ombre garland made of dark red, dark pink and light pink carnations. This added a perfect layer of texture and just the right touch of whimsicleness. A large floral hedge featuring hydrangeas, roses, spray roses and green stock gave the mandap more gravitas, while the clear acrylic chiavari chairs kept the outdoors space feel light and airy.
