Roshan and Alejandro
Roshan and Ale are a Washington D.C. power couple in love and life, both navigating political and military careers in the nations's capital. Their romance was packed with days in congressional meetings and the Pentagon for Ale nights on the campus library of Georgetown, where he finished up his MBA before saying "I do". They ran their lives efficiently and to the max. Their wedding would be nothing less.
Their amazing planner kept all the details of a large wedding held at the Andrew Mellon Library tack sharp.
The morning of the wedding was spent with a festive crew of bridesmaids, the Mother of the Bride and new Mother-in-law. Roshan finally sat down in my chair in an impressive calm despite the cyclone of wedding celebrations happening that weekend. She was a delagator and had truly given all the right jobs to all the right people. Every thought had been thought and here she was ready for fine detailing of hair, makeup and getting dressed. It was a pleasure to watch. She was a bride who needed no convincing. Sometimes the hardest battle is convincing a bride to be her natural, sexy and confident self. It was inspiring to watch Roshan. She wasn't asking permission to be herself, she just was graceful, kind and absolute assured. Everyone was there for her and she reveled in it.
Later that night, I watched Roshan and Ale on the dance floor, Ale a natural salsa dancer in perfect keeping with Roshan, who'd been dancing her whole life. The two could have a burned a whole in ground. I was on hand for an occasional lip touch, but along with the other three hundred or so persons in the room, I could have been a fly on the wall or just decoration to the party they celebrated between them two.
Theirs' was a night to remember and would be published in DC/VA/MD edition of the Knot Magazine the following spring.
