Wedding Series – #KandSKnotItUp Ceremony

Photographick Studios | www.photographick.com | 571-449-7468

Every bride has vision for their wedding day and I knew I wanted mine to be elegant, traditional, and fun! When picturing my wedding, I always knew I wanted an outdoor ceremony. We selected the Westfields Marriott for its beautiful terrace and colonial look and feel. While we knew there could be a chance of rain, we decided to hope for the best. In wedding planning and in life, I’ve learned that not everything happens exactly how you wish. You have to trust that whatever happens – happens for the best. Including rain on the morning of our wedding. Thankfully our friends and family were amazing and still danced in our Baraat (a groom’s outdoor wedding procession)! Our wedding planner Sagina saved the day by making sure our wedding ceremony was still as beautiful as we envisioned. Here a few of our favorite highlights!

Wedding Series – #KandSKnotItUp Ceremony

Decor

  • A mint and gold colored Mandap, full of lush flowers, and accented with hanging flower stands was always my dream.

Outfits

  • Coral is my favorite color and of course my wedding outfit had to be coral! I love how the color paired so well with our mint and gold decor and custom mint colored saris for my bridesmaids.

Personal Touches

  • We wanted our ceremony to be a reflection of our love for each other, our family, and loved ones. Shiv and I are both very close to our grandparents. We added photos of our grandparents on their wedding day to our entrance and felt their blessings with us.

Masti (Fun!)

  • While Indian weddings ceremonies run longer than most (over an hour!), we wanted our guests to have fun. The Baraat – accompanied by a horse, DJ, and Dhol (Drum) player set the tone for a festive mood. The bride’s side wanted to make sure we had our own fun with “Jutti Chupai’, a tradition where the bride’s sisters and bridesmaids stealthily take away and hide the shoes of the bridegroom. Our “Jutti Chupai” lasted over a half hour with intense negotiations from the groom’s side on how to get the shoes back!

Labor of Love

  • A wedding is truly a labor of love and each and every detail meant something special to us. As we went around the fire seven times, both Shiv and I were overcome with joy by seeing all our loved ones with us on our wedding day.
