Florence probably hasn’t been much in demand for hosting a lot of weddings for a few centuries, but it was given a glimpse of royalty just last week.
Jakarta-based couple Rachel Nathani and Amrit Lakhiani got hitched at their luxurious destination wedding in Florence a few days ago. Rachel is the founder and director of Label Ideas & Co., a branding firm, and Berrywell, a venture in the health food industry. Her fiancee-turned-husband, Amrit, is a real-estate developer. Nothing less than a powerhouse couple, both were ranked under the ’40 under 40′ tag by Prestige Indonesia in October 2015.
But their professional lives aren’t the only aspect of their lives we are envious about; their personal lives are equally drool-worthy. This eye-candy couple had been dating for over three years, when Amrit finally asked Rachel the big question atop a yacht in Bali last year. Once wedding planning began, this adorable couple created their own Instagram account itsamora2017 and used the hashtag #itsAMoRA for their big event.
Yeah, let out that sigh. We won’t judge you if you decide to head to the fridge for a tub of chocolate ice cream and put on a rom-com because that’s as romantic as normal people get.
Scroll down for some heart-popping cuteness.
The story of how they met
“We met in New York, on our way back to Indonesia. Both of us lived in Indonesia and knew of each other (small community), but didn’t interact until we ran into each other”. – Rachel
