Elia and Priyanka seal their marriage with a kiss as their wedding guests clap, cheer and celebrate this long-awaited moment.
For Elia and Priyanka, their wedding was meant to be more than a ceremony in which they became husband and wife. They wanted to celebrate their love for one another as well as their colorful, vibrant cultures with their closest family members and friends. They hosted their outdoor wedding at the Tamarind Hill restaurant in Singapore and live-streamed the ceremony for those who could not be in attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The couple arrived for their wedding day relaxed and present, which resulted in stunning candid moments in which their love for one another was on full display.
As a surprise, the groom sent a luxury Rolls Royce vehicle to fetch his bride for their wedding ceremony. As he gallantly opens the door for her and takes her hand, the bride looks at him with adoration. It is clear that she feels lucky to be marrying this charming man.
Draped in the bride's veil in the late afternoon sun, the happy couple glows as they look into each other's eyes.
Elia and Priyanka began their wedding ceremony with a Bollywood-style dance processional. The dance was a way to pay homage not only to the bride's Indian heritage, but also to the couple's origins. They met while attending a dance class together.
The bride and groom put energy and joy into each step of their Bollywood dance entrance. The crowd was enamored by the fact that they kept smiling at one another and giggling in unison during the procession.

After being declared husband and wife, the groom scooped up his bride and carried her down the aisle as the guests tossed rice at the happy couple. The act of throwing rice at newlyweds is an Italian tradition that symbolizes blessings being bestowed upon the couple.
Once the ceremony was complete, the couple and their wedding guests gathered inside the high-end restaurant at a long, colorful table. Elia and Priyanka toasted those who were able to be at the ceremony, as well as those who were celebrating from afar.
Many of Elia's family members were not able to attend the ceremony due to the ongoing pandemic, so their personal messages were shared with the groom via Zoom during the reception. Elia had a difficult time containing his emotions during this moving moment.
