Ionie and Amit met for the first time while dressed up wearing costumes in a sea of people, their conversation was brief and not all too rememberable but the meeting; the moment they locked eyes was indistinguishable. They remember the exact date they met; it was Halloween 2008 at Georgetown’s Nightmare on M Street. They had mutual friends who introduced them to each other after which they simply said hello and went about their business enjoying Halloween and forgetting about meeting their soon to be significant other.
It wasn’t until the winter of 2011 that their paths crossed again and with the help of friends Amit coerced Ionie for her number and took her out on a date. Within moments of dinner, together and alone they realized that they had more in common than they could ever imagine. They went to the same Alma Matter and lived freshman year a building away from each other, they went to the same concerts, lived in the same city and had dozens of mutual friends. Yet their paths never crossed outside of Halloween. From that moment, masked or unmasked they were by each others side and in love.
Ionie and Amit’s dual wedding ceremonies both Indian and Sri Lankan took place at the Fairview Park Marriott. Where family and friends gathered for a Baraat that started on top of a Hum-vee, ceremonies that were both magical and beautiful and a reception that kept family and friends, laughing, dancing and partying the night away.
