Ashley and Ronak celebrated their love with a bloom-filled Indian fusion wedding at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa. Inspired by Indian traditions, a live dhol player, colorful Indian attire and cultural Indian wedding rituals, their wedding was nothing short of spectacular.
The couple first met in the summer of 2015 on a downtown rooftop bar in Cleveland, Ohio, where they enjoyed time with mutual friends. After exchanging numbers, Ashley and Ronak went on a taco and ice cream date that turned into an 8-hour long affair. Ronak popped the question during a holiday in Italy, in the coastline town of Manarola, Italy, surrounded by picturesque and bright buildings.
The couple carried the colorful inspiration from Manarola into their wedding ceremony and reception through bright clothing and florals. Ashley and Ronak married on September 18, 2021, surrounded by loved ones, including their two fur babies, who wore matching custom-made Lehengas and Sherwanis. Guests enjoyed the delicious Mango Lassi drinks prepared for the Baraat. Ronak’s grand entrance was accompanied by a dhol player and Bollywood music. Ashley and Ronak chose to have a traditional Hindu ceremony, wearing red, gold and cream under a Mandap, a traditional Hindu wedding altar supported by four pillars signifying Truth, Mercy, Meditation and Purity. The Mandap was covered with blossoms in white, pink, burgundy and peach, and trailing greenery. The Indian fusion ceremony was performed in three languages; Sanskrit, English, and Gujarati. The couple celebrated not only their love but the union of their two families through various traditional rituals.
The celebration switched gears to a modern reception in green, silver and gold. Ashley changed into a deep green Lehenga while Ronak switched to a sleek black suit. The Hyatt Lost Pines ballroom included white and gold furniture with a backdrop of geometric mirrors. The tables were covered in green and cream velvet tablecloths, gold chargers and stunning floral centerpieces. Guests dined on delicious North Indian food. The couple cut into their four-tiered white cake, decorated with delicate pink roses. Clay look-a-likes of the couple’s two dogs served as cake toppers. Ashley and Ronak spent the rest of their unforgettable wedding dancing the night away with their family and friends.
