They have known each other for years; since they were 10 years old. They grew up, moved apart, and eventually married others and had families separately. But as fate would have it, these two were destined to find each other again. Somehow, across the years, those previous relationships ended, and Amarish and Anju found each other once more. A love story coming full circle once again.
We are so happy they did find one another again, and on this beautiful day in the incredible natural landscapes of the Valley of Fire, they were married. Standing in front of a beautiful circle arch adorned with pampas grass and sunflowers, and other Hindu elements of their culture, they pledged their love to one another. During the ceremony, Amarish placed a mangal sutra on Anju, which is the Hindu version of exchanging wedding bands, which they also exchanged.
We were so happy for them, and those present were so supportive and loving to this couple. Our bride looked amazing, with a slight air of beautiful and exotic mystery and elegance. Her gown was a two-piece blush crop top and skirt with a long shawl draped across her shoulder. The detailing of lace and mirror added sparkle to her graceful movements. It was a perfect weather kind of day, and the couple had arranged for acoustic guitar music to add depth and beautiful layers of sound to the already romantic day.
Amarish and Anju, it was a pleasure to witness and provide this special day for you both! Our best wishes and love go with you both, as you travel together once more on a beautiful journey together! Congratulations from all of us at Cactus and Lace Weddings!
