Pittsburgh, PA Indian Fusion Wedding by Jorge Santiago Photo

Welcome back, beauty queens! We are wrapping up Tara & Casey's wedding celebration by taking a look at an elegant and luxurious reception party hosted inside the halls of the Omni William Penn Hotel. For this closing gala, both our lovebirds attended looking elegantly and fashionably; however, it was Tara who stole the show! She wore a blue-hued trendy gown from Tarun Tahiliani's collection, very well complemented with the nude makeup and wavy hairstyle designed by Payal Patel. The whole night was a cornucopia of elegance and amazingness designed by Pearl Celebrations and decored by Imperial Decor. This winning combination delivered nothing but perfection throughout the entire festivities, and we are lucky enough fo being able to lay our eyes on their fabulous work. All the guests enjoyed the evening and danced the night away to the beats of Dhoom Events, right before tasting the culinary experience prepared by Taj Mahal and Udipi Cafe. One of the most memorable and romantic moments of the evening took place when our handsome Raja surprised his now-wife with a fabulous performance in which he played the piano while Tara's cousins accompanied him on the guitars. Hands down, a beautiful and unforgettable moment that got captured by Jorge Santiago Photo. In between dancing, chatting, and sweet pieces of the delicious cake baked by Tasty Bakery, the night got to an end. But, remember that you can always relive this beautiful wedding celebration by taking a peek at the full gallery that we have prepared for today!

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
Casey and I met working together in a medical office while both applying to medical school. One month after we started dating, we were accepted to different medical schools, and had to spend the next 4 years living in different states. The fact that he was so willing to put in the effort to make a long distance relationship work while going through med school made me realize very early on that he was the one. We went through the residency match process and were lucky enough to match in the same city, and shortly afterwards got engaged! We make each other laugh about the smallest things, and he always boosts my self confidence just when I need it!
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
I am South Indian, and I knew I wanted to incorporate South Indian traditions with elements of a Western wedding as well. While my hometown of Pittsburgh is a wonderful city, it doesn't offer the variety of vendors that bigger cities do. For that reason, I used several vendors based in larger cities like DC and NYC and was very happy with how everything turned out. Casey's family is not Indian, and so we wanted a wedding that was festive but also felt warm and inclusive. We think we achieved that with the help of our fantastic vendors!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Casey and I traveled to India with my parents to do all of our shopping. I knew I wanted a hybrid of South Indian, North Indian, and Western looks for the wedding events, and we were fortunate to travel to different parts of India to achieve this. I found my bridal sari, a red traditional South Indian silk sari, in Bangalore, and my Sangeet lengha at a boutique in Delhi. While I love the blush and neutral tones that are really popular with brides, I wanted something a little different for my reception look, and when I saw my blue Tarun Tahiliani gown, I thought it was perfect. I loved how unique it was with its striking color and full skirt, and it made me feel so special!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
Of course we are biased, but our family and friends really had amazing speeches that left us, and our guests, crying with laughter. Also, I have a huge sweet tooth and really wanted a big dessert spread, which ended up being a big hit!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Casey plays the piano really well, and he knows how much I love it when he plays. It's also hard for him to ever surprise me with anything. I was completely shocked when in the middle of our wedding reception, Casey and two of my cousins, Reka and Ashwin, surprised me with a performance, with singing, guitar playing, and Casey on the piano! They had secretly rehearsed via FaceTime for weeks without my knowing, and I was blown away by their thoughtfulness and talent! It was so special and I felt so lucky to have such a great family (and an amazing new husband)!
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
Our families are very important to us, and my wedding ceremony jewelry reflected this. My paternal grandfather is no longer living, but prior to his passing had gifted me with gold that was then turned into the Mangalsutra, my wedding chain, that Casey placed around my neck to signify our marriage. The other necklace I wore was a gift from my maternal grandfather. It was really special to have reminders of my grandparents' love during our ceremony!
Our venue, the Omni William Penn Hotel, is one of the oldest hotels in Pittsburgh. We especially loved the elegance of our reception site, the Grand Ballroom, which has a beautiful gold balcony. Our wedding ceremony was held in another room in the hotel that has a very unique art deco vibe. We wanted a venue that had three distinct event spaces for our three main wedding events, and were lucky to find it in the Omni! We wanted our cake to match the elegance of the venue, and Tasty Bakery more than delivered! We loved the combination of gold leaf with the textured gold base and maroon flowers, and it truly matched the aesthetic we were going for.

Today's story has come to an end, but don't forget to join us tomorrow for more!
