Ryan and Jessica had a gorgeous multicultural wedding at The Villas At San Louis Resort In Texas. They first met in the fall of 2011 at Texas A&M University. Between late night studying and dinners at a local restaurant to playing in the rain on campus and cheering on the fightin’ Texas Aggie football team, Ryan and Jessica realized there was something special between them. Ryan has loved Jessica so much that he waited patiently for her to finish nursing school before they got married.
The ceremony took place at First Baptist Church in Galveston which was also the church that Jessica attended and grew up in. Some of Jessica’s extended family flew all the way in from India to watch them tie the knot. Her pastor, who had seen her grow in her faith over the years, gave the sermon and blessed their marriage.
To celebrate Jessica’s Indian heritage, Ryan wore a traditional kurta, and the bridesmaids and Ryan’s mom wore colorful lehengas. Usha, Jessica’s mom, traveled back to India before the wedding to have the gowns custom made especially for them. Although red is the traditional color for brides, it was important to the Jessica that they wore white as a Christian symbol.
After the ceremony and family portraits, everyone headed to the San Luis Hotel on the Seawall. It was a non-stop party from the minute the DJ turned on the dance music to the last song of the night. Usha never stopped dancing. She pulled family members up on the stage for little dance sequences and truly celebrated this day to the maximum.
