Ramya & Srikant ~ JW Marriott Desert Ridge ~ Scottsdale, Arizona

On a warm and lovely Spring day in Arizona, Ramya and Srikant tied the knot in April 2012 at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort. Being a destination wedding, the couple welcomed friends and family from all over the world for their South Indian celebration. The welcome dinner and traditional Sangheet dance party featured a special dance that bride Ramya, who has studied Indian dance her entire life, performed for her groom. Groom Srikant and his groomsmen, also a-cappella singers, likewise performed beautiful music for the bride. The traditional South Indian ceremony featured beautiful orange and yellow florals and jasmine hair braids for the bride. The evening’s dinner celebration was definitely a room in bloom featuring manzanita trees indigenous to Arizona and a surprise flash mob dance with more than 200 people on the dance floor.
