Sandra and Kalyan | Amway Grand Plaza Pantlind Ballroom Wedding

Sandra and Kalyan’s wedding day actually took place back a few months and was held in India. Last weekend they made it legal here in the states with a small ceremony and a large wonderful celebration at the amazing Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in the Pantlind Ballroom. A Pantlind Ballroom wedding is one to remember for all, such a gorgeous space and wonderful staff and chefs. A truly luxurious wedding location. The perfect spot for this wonderful couple to celebrate with their friends and family. Some of my favorite parts of the day were watching Sandi swoop in for hugs when she saw any of her younger guests, the toasts highlighting how excited both families are about Sandra and Kalyan’s being added to their family, and as always the dancefloor and this was a good one! Kalyan and Sandra are so loved and when you meet them it’s easy to see why… they are delightful. I’m so glad you found each other!

This cake! Loved watching the attention to detail as the orchids were placed on this cake. The care put into the details at The Amway is commendable. 

Sneaked away from the party for a few extra portraits in the magnificent lobby, gosh I love those chandeliers.

What a wonderful day! Congrats Kalyan and Sandra!
