In an Indian wedding, it really is all about the details. Everything from the proposal, finding the perfect lengha, picking out the bridal jewelry to hunting down wedding invitations, it is no wonder that wedding planners have their planners full to the brim! However, when an Indian wedding turns into a fusion wedding, the bride really has her work cut out for her! Maharani Deepal met her Maharaja six years ago in the whimsical town of Davis, California. Their love would culminate the interwoven cultures of Deepal’s Hindu Gujarati family with her future husband Owen’s Jewish background. The wedding events spanned over a whirlwind of a week that included the Pithi (Turmeric Ceremony), Khatuvaru (Seafood Party), Santak (Religious Ceremony), and the Garba (Traditional Dance Night). On the Mehndi night, Deepal’s hands and legs were adorned by Maaz Henna Creations. I have to tell you how impressed I am by the work of Maaz. The rhythmic design of his work flows symmetrically with the personality of his brides; Deepal was no exception, her henna stood out and looked amazing with each of her outfit changes. Guests were invited to the week long event with invitations from Gemini Card Products and Hsin Ruey Embroidery provided the wedding favors. This Maharani had numerous outfit changes throughout her wedding celebration and her bridal fashion was handpicked from Roopkala. I loved the simplicity yet pizzazz of this bride’s jewelry selection from Sunil Jewellers; truly befitting for this charming Maharani! Take a look into the gallery as we peruse through more photos of this week long event photographed by Sameer Soorma Studios.
