I say, “YES” to the dress. Both of them!
We just got back from the Youghiogheny Country Club in Pittsburgh, PA. We hosted a beautiful Sri Lankan and American wedding! Congratulations to Ron and Ishi. While Ishanka wore an American style wedding dress for the outside ceremony, she changed into a traditional Sri Lankan wedding dress for the reception. Both dresses were absolutely gorgeous! We were so happy to host this multi-cultural event.
Ishi and Ron made their parent dances extra special! Before Ishi and her father danced, not only did I translate the meaning of their song, Ishi actually sung the first part! While I was not able to grab Ron’s special dedication to his mom on video, it was AWESOME! Ron escorted his mother, Lisa, to the floor to dance to, “Hot, Hot Hot” by Buster Poindexter. After dancing a few seconds together, they started to invite guests to join them! Secretly, Lisa didn’t know I planned to give our dancers flowered leis to add to their fiesta!
Wait! There’s more surprises! Ishi and Ron pleasantly shocked their guests with their first dance which was a mix of “Thinking out lout” by Ed Sheeran and “Danza Kuduro” by Don Omar. We LOVED their latin dance moves! Ishi and her girlfriends also planned a special dance to perform for their guests! This was truly a unique wedding! We were very honored to be a part of their big day.
Below is a short video of a few clips we captured on our iPhones from the wedding. Congrats to Ron & Ishi!
