Karishma + Rusty

Love story

We met at a bar in Austin while hanging out with mutual friends from Google (where we both work) and quickly realized we shared a love of hockey. Watching hockey games quickly turned into concerts, hiking, trying new restaurants in Austin, and spending time with friends.

In 2018, Karishma decided that he was serious enough for Rusty to meet the family. It went well enough that by the end of the weekend there was talk of wedding venues! That took a little longer to figure out, but 6 months later, on February 21, 2019, Rusty surprised Karishma by interrupting her "girls' night out" with a proposal on a rooftop in Austin overlooking our "Owl Building." favorite.

On June 14, 2019, we were married in a small civil ceremony in a park in St. Louis, Missouri (where Rusty is from) attended only by our families. This just two days after Rusty's hockey team, the St. Louis Blues won their first Stanley Cup in 50 years, bringing our relationship full circle.

We planned to have our Indian wedding a year later, the weekend of June 12-14, 2020, but COVID had other plans for us. A few postponements later, we decided on February 25-27, 2022 and can't wait for it to get here so we can finally celebrate the Red Miraculous Wedding with all of our family and friends at the Hard Rock Riviera in Mexico. We chose #RedMiracleWedding as our hashtag because it combines the meanings behind each of our names (Rusty means "the red one" and Karishma means "miracle") with the miracle that a white boy from St. Louis and an Indian girl from Miami could be found in Austin, Texas. Wedding weekend

A white guy from St. Louis and an Indian girl from Miami are in Austin, Texas, getting married in the riviera maya and chose a riviera maya wedding photography style for their mexican caribbean wedding photo collection! !

The wedding photographer was an Italian and the other Argentine, the make-up artist was Colombian. It was a true cosmopolitan wedding! 3 days full of laughter, dance, love and deep hugs. It was wonderful to share this beautiful wedding with our friends at I do Celebration and ShaadiDestination.
We can also celebrate Mr Rusty's birthday.

We dedicate this gallery in memory of Mr. and Mrs. Rusty.
