This past March Dashua & Joseph got married at Beaches Ocho Rios in Jamaica! We were lucky to be able to work with them and their family to plan and execute their Destination Wedding and their families travel! Check out their beautiful photos below!

If you thought Day 1 was fantastic - wait until you see day 2! There were 3 total ceremonies and a reception on this day - the Chuda Ceremony, the Baarat, the Wedding Ceremony and the Reception. Check out a couple of photos from each! Chuda Ceremony - On the wedding day the rituals at the girl’s home begin with the Chuda ceremony. To commemorate the Chuda ceremony, a havan or puja is conducted by the pandit. Thereafter, the pundit ties a mauli on the to be bride’s wrist. The oldest maternal uncle and aunt play an important role in the performance of the ceremony. They fast till the event is completed. Chuda is basically a set of red and cream ivory bangles that is touched by all present. People touch the chuda and give their heartiest wishes to the girl for her future married life. Also, they sprinkle flower petals on the bride. Prasad is distributed to all. After that, the girl’s uncle, aunt, friends and cousins tie kaliras (silver, gold or gold plated traditional ornaments) to a bangle worn by the girl.
Next up is the Baraat!
Sorry I am posting this one so late! Things have been a little hectic, but this wedding that you are about to view is my favorite for 2015 for sure. It was also the most challenging and it was so wonderful to LEARN about another culture. The families from both the bride and groom were just wonderful and we were blessed to be a part of their special day! Day one was full of Henna and the ever fun Sangeet! The dancers were awesome! Huge shout out to the NC State Dance Teams!!!
This couple was AWESOME! They already walk in sync with one another! This bride traveled a distance to get married here and it was so worth it! This group cried and laughed during the ceremony while the bride & groom made "googly" eyes at one another, then the entire group partied until they couldn't party anymore!
Here are just a few of the highlights!
During the reception on this wedding I have never seen such lively men - all dancing to the Old School R&B & Hip Hop (MY FAVORITE!) they had it going on with the Michael Jackson, New Edition and....BBD! Not only that the love in the room was great because the families mixed well and all were waiting for them to take the next step! Thank you to all of the wonderful vendors: High Point University, Grandover, Human Graphics Photography, Designs North Florist, Maxie B's for the wonderful cake!
