Laura and Raj were married at the Westmount Country Club in Woodland Park, N.J. on November 17. “Raj and I have very opposite taste,” Laura said. “I am rustic, he is modern. The Westmount was the perfect balance.” She stunned in a strapless sweetheart lace wedding gown, accessorized with chooras, or red and white bangles, which are an Indian wedding tradition. Laura’s hair was tightly curled and pinned to one side, and she carried a bouquet made of all-white roses and hydrangeas. Her bridesmaids wore navy blue chiffon floor-length dresses and carried bouquets made of light pink roses. The groom and his ‘men looked dapper in their gray suits with white vests and neck ties. There was the baraat, a processional in which the groom rides on a decorated horse to the ceremony with his family in tow. After the nuptials, the guests enjoyed an indoor reception that included, dancing and indulging in a multi-shaped cake. Yum! “It is a beautiful day where everyone you love comes to show you unconditional love and support during the biggest moment of your life,” she said.

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.

Julianne and Navin were married in both an American and Indian ceremony Tower Hill Botanical Garden in Boylston, Mass. on July 6. “From the beautifully landscaped grounds to the multiple breathing greenhouses, our chosen venue was one-of-a-kind,” Julianne said. The Indian ceremony was first featuring a vibrant red and orange color scheme while the American ceremony was second featuring a lavender and sage green color scheme. Cocktail hour was in between. One of the bride’s favorite moments was “when we recited our personal vows,” she said.”But then, the next day, my grandmother told me it was one of the best weddings that she had ever been to, and my grandfather was sore from dancing too much.” Doesn’t that make your heart melt? One of the groom’s favorite moments? His bride!  The reception was decorated with all white circular tables and chiavari chairs, burlap table runners, and tall floral centerpieces, and table names named after flowers.

Vibrant and Bright Indian Wedding in Georgia

Supernita & Vivek

April 7

Savannah, Georgia


What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We wanted an outdoor wedding near the water that captured the essence of Savannah – the city we got engaged. The Westin Savannah Harbor Resort provided us that backdrop for capturing the beauty of the river and historic Savannah, while providing us the flexibility of indoor and outdoor spaces that we wanted for our spring wedding weekend.

Which details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. The magical setting on Friday night, with the lights, colors, dhol player, surprise fireworks on the river against the backdrop of historic Savannah.
  2. The oversized floral arrangements and neutral color palette of our reception day, with abundant candles and flowers. Our place settings that had a rose bloom and a personalized thank you note for each of our guests at the reception.  It allowed us the opportunity to individually express our gratitude for their presence and make it a more intimate event.
  3. The beautiful weather we lucked out with on the day of our wedding. The pink orchids and crystals, rose petals down the aisle and the vibrant outfits of our wedding party, against the clear blue skies made for a perfect afternoon setting for our wedding.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

The wedding is a celebration of your love! Minor details don’t matter, focus on absorbing the love and energy around you. During the ceremony, try to do a time-out moment where both of you capture a mental picture of your ceremony – that will remain with you forever!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

The moment Vivek and I entered our Friday night Sangeet event (the first event of our wedding weekend), we were awestruck by the fact that everyone had traveled great distances (Savannah is not an easy city to get to) just to celebrate with us — and that is our most amazing memory the entire weekend!
