Dynamic opposites, Shelly Tiwari, 26, and Amit Shah, 30 met through mutual friends in 2010 and dated for five years. Amit planned a romantic proposal by Amit on his birthday in March 2015 with the help of Shelly’s sister and best friend. She said yes, and wedding prep began shortly after.
Amit’s parents took charge of wedding planning, though always paid attention to feedback from the couple. Since Shelly and Amit are from Orlando, they both jumped at the suggestion by Amit’s father to hold events at the Sheraton Lake Buena Vista. All other places paled in comparison. A few of the pre-wedding ceremonies were held at Amit’s parents’ house.
Two large tents with Indian décor were set up in the backyard to accommodate 250 guests. Creating a mystical Rajasthani ambience, golden centerpieces with glass centers were illuminated with LED lighting and spotlights on the outside and a red rose floating inside.
