As professional wedding photographers who’ve had the privilege of capturing countless nuptials at this dreamy venue, we can’t help but fall in love with it over and over again. Every wedding celebrated at this venue is a new chapter in a beautiful love story, each with its own unique sparkle. From the sacred rituals to the decadent food menus, there’s always something new and different to look forward to! Speaking of unique, Max and Ramya’s wedding was an extraordinary blend of Western and Indian traditions, creating a breathtaking fusion that mirrored their strong bond. Their big day was a celebration that checked all the boxes of a bright, colorful, and unforgettable wedding.
Meet The Lovebirds – Max and Ramya
Max and Ramya’s love story began at a casual pre-medical school event held at Beer Market. They started as acquaintances, striking up conversations that flowed effortlessly. It wasn’t long before they realized they shared more than just a career path; they shared a deep connection. On October 1st, 2016, their friendship blossomed into something more, as they officially became a couple.
The moment that sealed their commitment was both breathtaking and intimate, set against the stunning backdrop of Yosemite National Park. Max proposed on the 4-and-a-half-mile trail, with the iconic half dome towering in the distance. Ramya’s heart skipped a beat as she said “yes,” and their journey together continued to unfold, filled with love, adventure, and the promise of a future together.
Max And Ramya’s Beautiful Fusion Wedding At The Palm Event Center
Celebrations began at the famous Palm Event Center, where Max and Ramya tied the knot and promised each other love and happiness forever. Getting ready for the big day, Ramya, our radiant bride, looked absolutely stunning in her lehenga (An Indian ethnic bridal apparel) by Swati Designs. Her attire had the most delicate and detailed design, and her bridesmaids wore a combination of bright pink and orange lehengas – all looking smashing! A huge shoutout to Faces by Emily for working her magic! The groom, Max, was dressed in a stylish sherwani (An Indian ethnic groom attire), and his boys donned classic maroon kurtas (Indian ethnic apparel). Soon, it was time to get married!
From the flowers by Nicole Ha Design to the seating arrangements – everything was tastefully selected and placed. As the ceremonies and celebrations proceeded, we made sure to capture every special moment from their wedding ceremony. There was so much love and happiness in the air, making our job easy. The 45 minutes of the abbreviated Hindu ceremony were filled with vibrant colors, fragrant flowers, and the sweet melodies of sacred mantras. As they exchanged garlands, you could feel the depth of their commitment and the joy radiating from their smiles.
Then, the moment turned even more heartwarming as they devoted 15 minutes to sharing their personalized vows. Their words, spoken from the heart, were a testament to their love’s depth and sincerity. As they sealed their promises with a kiss, their family and friends erupted in cheers and tossed petals into the air, showering the newlyweds with love and blessings.
Celebrating With The Newlyweds
Max and reception was a fairy tale come true! Words fail to express how fantastic the entire set-up looked. The newlyweds had their first dance and swayed to “Butterflies” by MAX with DJ Fantasy Sound on the console. Their reception was full of laughter and love, and the groom and his groomsmen also did a special dance during the reception, taking the day to the next level with some cool lighting help by Kevin from Fantasy Sound! We have to say, these guys know how to party! The wedding cake by Cake Expressions was every bite delicious, and Cree Daniels, the couple’s coordinator from Signature Events by Christina Romero, deserves a loud ‘woohhoo! because WOW, everything flowed so smoothly and seamlessly.
As we ask all our lovely couples about their favorite part of the wedding planning process, Ramya shared, “Blending two cultures and bringing two families together.” Talking about the most challenging part of the wedding planning process, they spoke about compromise. In the end, the process brought them even closer, strengthening their bond.
