Melissa and Diego were married at Vrinda’s Meditation Garden in Miami, Fla. on September 10. “I always wanted to have an outdoor wedding,” Melissa said. “I love nature, and I wanted it to be at an ashram, so it was the perfect place.” Surrounded by 50 closest family and friends, the couple proclaimed their vows to each other. “During Vedic wedding ceremonies, the vows you exchange with your spouse include swearing friendship, fidelity, companionship, love, care, and to abide by them for 100 autumns,” she said. “How beautiful is that! Every word, and my husband’s look into my eyes when he was saying them to me are unforgettable.” The reception followed underneath a tent lit with lanterns. Tables were decorated with pink and orange linens and grass centerpieces. The guests’ favorite detail? The naked wedding cake with three different flavors: passion fruit, blueberry, and spirulina.
