There is something so beautiful about multicultural weddings - the blending of two families, the sharing of traditions, and warmth and welcoming of family and friends coming together to celebrate love all make weddings all the more meaningful. For N + S, they chose to honor both sides with their wedding outfits, ceremony, and incredible dances to kick off the night. Their wedding day started with the gowri puja, a prayer ceremony with the women to pray for and bless their marriage. After sharing a first look together, these two were ready to get the party started! Their ceremony started with an epic baraat, with the groom on his bike as their loved ones cheered in excitement, and was followed by traditional Indian wedding rituals to celebrate the start of a happy marriage. As the ceremony came to an end, they incorporated Western traditions of saying their vows to each other and exchanging wedding bands. And of course no Indian wedding is complete without traditional dancing, one of the most fun parts of the night! Check out the rest of N + S's Indian and Western wedding below!
