Aemish and Resh Cancun Wedding Part 2

To tell the story of one beautiful wedding we need to start with another one...


Resham Uttamchandani and Aemish Shah met when they walked down the aisle together at a mutual friend's wedding. She was a bridesmaid, he was a groomsman, they made small talk in line for the bar and neither of them thought anything of it.  Well, Resh didn’t think anything of it, but Aemish had her on his mind when he drove home, and when Hurricane Irma hit Saint Martin, Resham’s hometown, Aemish sent a note to Resh. After a series of facebook messages and texts, Aemish had a critical decision to make - skip a talk with his idol, Kobe Bryant & tickets for the World Series or go to Palm Springs and finally meet up with Resh in person?  He went to Palm Springs. During their first date, they watched game 7 from a TV. Resham did not understand baseball, but made a strong effort for Aemish. 


After months apart and countless weekend trips, Resham took a physician job in SF, she claims it was not because Aemish lived there ;). The couple started dating and a few years later on February 29, 2020, Aemish took Resh out on sail around the bay, and proposed under the Golden Gate Bridge. The joy from the engagement overshadowed the growing headlines about a virus, and two weeks later the world shut down.


Little did these two know that COVID-19 was ready to spice up their wedding planning. Flash forward to a year later: Resham’s search history consisted of Alibaba and Aza Fashion. Finally, May of 2021 came and the couple got married in Orange County at the auspicious BAPS Swaminarayn Mandir. An intimate wedding that could have been set in Jaipur, India was in the backyard of Chino Hills, CA. The small wedding brought together some of the couples nearest and dearest friends and family. Resh and Aemish saw the festivities as a means to bring their community together during challenging times. 


The couple knew the world changed after the pandemic, and as things opened back up they wanted to plan a larger celebration in Mexico with those who couldn’t attend the intimate California ceremony. Everyone had been deprived of traveling, and with their love for tacos and tequila and Resh’s dream of tying the knot on a beach, the couple set their hopes on bringing friends and family together in Costa Mujeres, Mexico for one last celebration (a walk down the aisle for the third time).  After a year of continual planning and canceling, they were gluttons for punishment trying to plan a mega-event in another country, but thanks to the brilliance of JC Castillo Weddings and Shaadi Destinations, their efforts were slightly at ease. 


Friends and family came together for 4 epic days at the TRS Coral Resort in Costa Mujeres, Mexico. A sangeet, margaritas by the pool, white party on the beach, 3 baarats, a few boats, a monsoon (wedding) last minute audible, and endless laughs and dances was a perfect cap to the couples celebrations… Sometimes, missing a Game 7 is worth it - especially when you have to see to a girl.


The past 18 months have been beyond challenging for the world. Resh and Aemish feel blessed to have started their lives in this way and incredibly grateful for the ability to do so.
