Smita & Ian | The Nine's | Portland, Or

East meets West... Overused term maybe but for Smita and Ian it was a running theme. I got the extreme pleasure of meeting Smita when I worked at Intel and we were blessed to be in the same WiFi Finance group. It was such an amazing time in our lives.

I got to meet Ian at The Nines before the wedding for a walk thru, and he was every bit as special as Smita described- the kind of guy that meets you and gives you hugs- loved that! They truly have an engagement story that is better than any J Lo. romantic comedy. Big gold star to Ian, it's long, but short version- the first time Ian saw Smita was at an Indian festival downtown where she was wearing a yellow dress, they later met thru friends, but she was forever the girl in the yellow dress. They were friends that turned into love. He lives on the East coast and had a surprise day planned using her girlfriend that involved treats, love letters, ticket stubs, a personal shopper at Nordstrom with a room filled with every yellow dress and accessories for her to choose from- then the surprise visit to the rose gardens with him waiting in a tux with her family- Ahhhhh.... I melt!

The wedding was a beautiful mix of traditions, families, and the best wedding food I've ever had the joy of tasting- and a fabulous wedding party up for anything.

One of Ian's family traditions. An old German tale of a man that had to make a cup that both he and his wife could drink from before the father would allow her hand.
