Livermore, CA Hindu-Christian Fusion Wedding by Wedding Documentary Photo + Cinema

Hey dolls! Today, I'm going to share with you a fabulous Hindu-Christian fusion ceremony, that takes place in Livermore, California, courtesy of the awesome photographic skills of Wedding Documentary Photography & Videography! Following the celebratory fun at the mehndi, Vidhi and sangeet ceremonies (which were respectively catered by Chipotle, the Swaminarayan Temple and Bombay Garden), we get a sneak peek at the gorgeous bride getting ready for her big day! I love that Maharani Puja went with a stunning pink, green and gold lengha by AsoPalav — rather than the traditional red and gold. And those hot pink shoes are fierce! Gotta respect a bride who dares to be different! Christal Clear gives Puja a flawless look with shimmery gold and brown shadows highlighted with a touch of pink above the crease. Her beautiful hands and feet are decorated with a magical mehndi design by Henna-World. There's so much more to come, including the groom making a grand entrance with the help of none other than the amazing Vintage Carriage Company, but for now, check out even more getting ready images in the gallery!

From the bride, on how they met:

"My Raja and I met in the Spring of 2016, on the gorgeous Caribbean island of Grenada. We were both in medical school at the time and were introduced to each other through mutual friends. After moving back to the US, Delaney and I were not living in the same state, but after two years of long distance dating, our careers brought us together again when I moved to Michigan to start my residency. I knew Delaney was "the one" when he met my parents for the first time. As an only child with very protective parents, this was the first guy my parents."

On the proposal:

"Delaney and I went to Washington D.C. for a little getaway (actually, he had to be in town for a work conference and I decided to tag along). We spent the few days we were there sight-seeing and enjoying the beautiful spring weather. On my last night in town, unbeknownst to me, he had planned a romantic proposal. We had just finished dinner and Delaney insisted we go see the Washington Memorial at night. While taking some selfies in front of the memorial, out of nowhere, he got down on one knee and proposed to me. I was in complete shock. Total awe. So much so, that I forgot to say 'yes.' Thank goodness the few onlookers standing at a distance reminded me that I needed to tell him that I would marry him. We were even fortunate enough to have captured the special moment on our camera, definitely a moment that will be remembered for a lifetime. And the trip back to the hotel after the proposal was probably the 2nd most memorable part of the evening, because as soon as he proposed, it started pouring rain. We ended up walking for miles back to our hotel, drenched but as happy as could be."

On the fashion:

"I tried to keep an open mind when it came to my wedding and reception lenghas, especially since I only had two weeks while in India to pick my outfits. I knew I didn't want a traditional red lengha for my wedding ceremony, so this made the task of finding a lengha even more challenging. We ended up finding my wedding lengha on my first day in India and found a beautiful sherwani for my Raja that matched it perfectly! Even after all of the internet browsing beforehand, the lengha that I picked was not something I would have ever been able to find online and was a one-of-a-kind piece that I fell in love with."

On hair and makeup:

"I had a general idea of what I wanted but when I met with my hair and makeup artist, I came in with an open mind. She had a chance to get to know my style based on a few ideas I threw out to her, and the rest was all her! Christal was phenomenal. She was able to create the perfect look for all of my events without making me feel or look unnatural. I cannot imagine having worked with anyone else, she was so easy to work with and made that part of the wedding planning process a cinch."

Pre-wedding portraits are coming up!

Bridgewater, NJ Indian Fusion Wedding by Events Capture

It's the first of two wedding ceremonies for today's Indian bride and groom in Bridgewater, New Jersey. Events Capture whisks us away to this romantic event at the New Durham Chapel, where our beautiful couple will tie the knot. Our Maharani looks like a vision of perfection in her white wedding gown and a sheer, floral bolero. The image of her making her way down the aisle with her traditional white veil and sweet bouquet is definitely a precious, candid moment she will come to cherish for ages. She gives us a peek at her bridal shoes, and those adorably ruffled peep-toes are simply stunning. You can't help but notice the breathtaking mehndi design on her feet too! Her bridesmaids paid homage to her heritage with their ombred, orange saris. What a gorgeous choice by the bride! Not all bridal parties are so lucky... Guests of the day's events were treated to an amazing feast catered by Masala Kitchen, and we're a bit jealous after checking out the menu on their site! For even more amazing coverage from this church wedding, including a look at the first of two wedding cakes by Chocal8kiss Bakery, head into the full gallery.
