The fusion of their cultures, traditions, and love story made their wedding at the historic Villa Woodbine Mansion in Miami, Florida, a truly enchanting affair. Join us as we recount the magical moments of their special union.

Day One: A Mehendi Function Filled with Joy and VibrancyThe festivities commenced with a lively mehendi function held at a nearby airbnb where the immediate family had stayed. . The air was filled with anticipation as friends and family gathered to revel in the joyous occasion. Vibrant hues of orange, yellow, and pink adorned the decor, reflecting the rich heritage of both Sri Lanka and Cuba. Intricate henna designs adorned the hands of the bride, bridesmaids, and guests, adding an element of traditional beauty to the event. The atmosphere was electric with laughter, chatter, and smiles, setting the stage for the grand celebration to come.

Day Two: A Captivating Display of Love and EleganceThe second day of Darshan and Christina's wedding unfolded at the magnificent Villa Woodbine Mansion, a picturesque venue that perfectly complemented the couple's vision. O Luxe Design transformed the venue into a dreamlike setting, with meticulous attention to detail evident in every corner. The highlight of the day was the mandap, nestled beneath the shade of the famed tree in the mansion's yard. It served as a breathtaking backdrop for the couple's union, symbolizing strength, growth, and the intertwining of their two cultures.
