KELSEY GALLAGHER & AMEYA BOPARDIKAR
JULY 28, 2017
Ameya and I met in the elevator of our apartment building six years ago.
Over the course of three months, we kept running into each other and really enjoyed those 15-second long “elevator conversations.” After our third elevator exchange, Ameya asked me out on a date, and the rest is history.
Our wedding’s central theme was to weave together our cultural backgrounds into one big celebration.
Our colour palette was bright and Indian-inspired with deep pink, gold and navy—which also tied into the bridesmaids’ traditional Indian attire. We introduced ample elegance with fresh pops of colour at our modern wedding venue.
Having garden roses lining the dinner tables was such a treat.
We loved them for their beautiful look, fragrance and because they really spoke for themselves. My bouquet contained stargazer lilies, which are my mom’s favourite and were in her wedding bouquet as well. The best part was that the guests got to take home the bouquets alongside custom-designed favours from India that were filled with chai spices and other spice mixtures and herbs. We
performed a Bollywood flash mob. With many former figure skaters in the room, we had a lot of dance enthusiasts to say the least. One of my bridesmaids and I took Bollywood dance classes in the months leading up to the wedding, and then we choreographed a dance that was sent across the country to our cousins, the wedding party and some close friends. Our guests were really surprised and it set the tone for our amazing dance party!
