Ravi & Jessica
A wedding is the coming together of two lives, two souls, two people with their own unique backgrounds and life stories to create something so special. We especially love mixed weddings and the way that two cultures come together in a way that is so heartwarmingly beautiful. Ravi and Jessica’s Des Moines wedding was exactly that, a perfect blend of western and traditional that was as beautifully crafted as their relationship, itself. We sent GB, Karm, and Anil down to see it all for themselves!
This celebration of their love was so Ravi and Jessica – it was energetic, authentic, real, compassionate, and of course, filled with music and love (Jessica is a singer, afterall!). Our three Visual Storytellers couldn’t stop beaming about this wedding! Karm told us, “They like to have a lot of fun with each other and be silly with one another. They are so in love it’s crazy!!!” Anil agreed, he said, “They are really fun, loving and extraordinary people. They value their family and the family of their partner extremely highly and it shows in the relationship they all share.” We love everything about these two, from Ravi’s need to always have food to Jessica’s permanent smile!
And there wasn’t just love beaming between the happy couple, but everyone there, as well! The speeches given by Ravi and Jessica’s friends and family were some of the most beautiful speeches we’ve ever heard and we were even lucky enough to capture a beautiful moment of Ravi tearing up at his brother’s speech at the final reception. “Ravi’s friend, Stacey, officiated the service for their western service and literally every word he used was so impactful and held so much truth – he went as far as researching stories about the couple from their parents. All of their speeches were so epic,” GB told us.
Looking back, GB, Karm, and Anil said the whole week was an amazing experience. “It was such a long week – but honestly it didn’t feel like it at all – every event was lavish but that didn’t matter what mattered was the couple and their love and that was the most present in the room.” We couldn’t agree more and the love between Ravi, Jessica, and all of their loved ones beams through their photos! From all of us at Banga Studios, we want to wish the happy couple a big congratulations and may there be many more beautiful memories to come!
