There are some wedding films that preserve memories, and some that create them. Johnson and Priya’s wedding highlight by Epique Cinema definitely belonged to the second set. This lovely couple blissfully exchanged nuptial vows at the St Thomas Syro Malabar Catholic Church, while Hilton Dallas/ Rockwall Lakefront housed the wedding party. Wedding planner extraordinaire and day of coordinator, Events by Hala orchestrated this traditional Malayalee Catholic fusion affair. The buildup to their ceremony was truly the real deal, where we got to see Priya looking so elegant in all her bridal glory. She opted for a classic tulle white gown with a sweetheart neckline, featuring decadent, almost-artisanal beading work. Makeup by Shilpa dolled up Priya in the most fitting way, giving a subtle gold tint on the eyes and an overall neutral look. Priya’s side-swept hair was let loose in gorgeous curls, with a braid to hold her tiara and veil. Henna by Afshan was responsible for the intricate mehndi designs. Going by the glimpses of the couple’s private shoot outdoors, we could tell that the talented team at William Bichara Photography captured stunning keepsakes. The ceremony came to a close post vows and the candle lighting ritual, after which the party moved to Hilton Dallas/ Rockwall Lakefront to celebrate the newlyweds via a reception. Divine Decor of Dallas decked out the ballroom in whimsical white florals, and Desi Junction DJs perfectly complemented the decor with a luminous pink glow. The white, blue, and pink color palette of the decor was made to coordinate the couple’s ensembles. Draped2Nines styled Priya in a rani pink kanjeevaram sari, complete with a gold waist belt, matha patti, and an exquisite necklace set. We particularly loved the starry night vibe that we got thanks to the sequin linens, a stone-studded stage backdrop, and metallic accents. Hilton Dallas and Bollywood Sizzlers treated the guests to the most amazing spread of Indian delicacies. DJ Chani brought in the party with his energetic beats and mixes, accompanied by the live Dhol beats. Relive this fusion fiesta by hitting play on the video!
