Red, Sapphire, and Gold Indian Wedding | Downtown Tampa Hilton Hotel

Regal, vibrant colors of red, blue, and gold filled the room at Binny and Uttam’s Downtown Tampa wedding. “Something out of old Bollywood,” the bride reminisced. Because it was an Indian wedding, the colors were so vibrant and beautiful. Having that level of beauty balances well with my type of photography, capturing color and depth to all that is photographed. Their love for each other and their fun spirit made it so easy for me to capture beautiful images.

The wedding was held in the courtyard of Downtown Tampa Hilton. The intimate and unique setting of this Indian wedding gave the bride and groom the chance to interact personally with all of their guests. The courtyard sits below a line of trees that shades the courtyard, allowing the sun to peek through. This accounts for the beautiful light you see in photos.

The Proposal
His proposal was perfect. He took me out to dinner at the Signature Room in Chicago. The restaurant has one of the best views of Downtown Chicago. Uttam is very expressive and loving on a daily basis. But, that night he had a speech prepared about why he wanted to spend his life with me. I cried. He popped out the ring and I said, “Yes!”

How would you describe your theme and what made you choose it?
I am not sure if we had a theme. We wanted our wedding to be vibrant and colorful! Our colors are Gold, Red & Blue.

Welcoming of the Groom
“Bahraat” is a time for the bride’s family to ceremonially welcome the groom, accepting him to marry the bride. Uttam’s entrance was non-traditional. He did not come on horseback, but in a monster truck!

What city do you live in and why specifically did you chose this area for your wedding?
We met in Chicago. I moved to Florida to be closer to him. I have always loved the scenery in Tampa and St. Petersburg. The juxtaposition between the architecture and the ocean is breathtaking!

The Ceremony
“Mundap” is the area, typically under a canopy laced with fabric and ornate decor, where the wedding ceremony is held. The decor and clothes were so colorful and elegant. The gorgeous outdoor location made the wedding fun and informal, yet stylish and memorable.
