While the colors of the morning wedding reflected regal elegance, after the sun went down, the colors became even more trendy as royal blue, hot pink, and purple entered the room. The reception gave guests an opportunity to perform dances to show off their culture and expression of their love for the bride, groom and family. Family and friends shared in expression with personal dances dedicated to the bride and groom. The delicious food, refreshing drinks, and excellent music ensured that everyone had a good time.
A traditional Indian wedding, in the U.S., lasts about three days. Binny and Uttam decided to make full use of one day so that the cultural aspect was maintained in both the wedding and the reception.
My engagement ring is a sapphire because I love color. I wanted to ensure that sapphire was incorporated into our wedding.
His and my entrance. Our first dance! I think what I remember the most is dancing the night away at our reception.
How did you incorporate you and your husband’s personalities into the wedding?
My husband and I are an easy-going couple. We’re both fun-loving and non-traditional. We wanted our wedding to be fun and informal, yet stylish and memorable! We did not stress about minute details. We made sure we had an excellent DJ, served good food and drinks. Our goal was to have everyone on the dance floor.
It’s the bride’s moment to shine as she performs a dance for the groom, truly expressing her love for him.
Indian weddings are all about family. The whole day is truly a collaboration of events and moments that the entire family participates in. Whether the morning ceremony or the reception, you can see how important family is.
