Orlando, FL   The wedding celebration started Thursday night with an intimate mehndi celebration at the parents’ home in Melbourne, Florida. Tejal from Tejal Henna did the Mehndi and a local girl named Minali did everyone eles’s. Ashmi’s mom and the other ladies sang songs and danced a lot during the celebration.   Friday night was the garba, which is a pre-wedding celebration night with music and dancing. It was held at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando. A band named Surbahar played the music that night, and everyone did traditional gujarati dancing called garba and raas. Ashmi performed a dance for Tushar with her friends.   Saturday morning was the ceremony, also at Rosen Center. The highlight of the morning was Tushar coming in on an elephant. Ashmi went out to meet Tushar as he arrived and everyone danced outside a while before going into the ceremony. That evening was the reception, where everyone ate, drank, and danced the night away.
