Caroline and Sanket were married at Congress Park in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. followed by a reception at Canfield Casino on June 29. The couple had two ceremonies at the park, the first one being a traditional Indian ceremony. The bride looked radiant in a mint, pink, and gold lehenga and donned classic curls for the affair. The groom looked dapper in a white sherwani featuring red, gold, and mint embroidery. The groom and his family danced underneath a red umbrella as part of his entrance to the ceremony. They were married under a big structure featuring mint and hot pink draping and stunning floral arrangements. The bride and groom sat in red velvet chairs surrounded by their family in gold chiavari chairs. “Despite the heat, I really enjoyed the Indian ceremony,” Caroline said. “It is hard to appreciate all the details of the ceremony — the colors, smells, sounds– unless you’re right there in it.” A traditional American ceremony followed, and the bride changed into an A-line gown featuring a beaded sweetheart bodice and a tulle skirt. She wore her hair in a delicate updo and carried pink peonies, garden roses, and succulents. Her ‘maids rocked long pink chiffon gowns with various necklines. After the second ceremony concluded, everyone moved to the Canfield Casino for the reception. The venue featured high ceilings and stained glass windows. The tables were decorated with bejeweled votive candles, mint and gold table numbers, and light pink compote vases filled with roses, peonies, and hydrangeas. The escort cards had a pink, blue, and gold pattern on them that was reminiscent of their invitation style. Guests ate and danced the night away, and indulged in a one-tier buttercream cake with a gold lasercut topper and adorned with flower petals. “Be unique and personalize your event to you and your partner– don’t compare your wedding to friends’ weddings or Pinterest,” Caroline said.

Niyati and Shashank were married at The Westin Pasadena in Pasadena, Calif. on August 31. Niyati looked beautiful in a traditional bright pink and orange sari. She accessorized with a jeweled headpiece, a gold collar necklace, matching bangles, and henna art on her hands. The groom looked handsome in a white sherwani with gold embroidery, a red scarf, and a bejeweled red wedding turban. “We wanted a bright, colorful, and fun wedding. It was really important for us to enjoy the wedding and make sure our guests were having fun,” Niyati explained. The couple incorporated Indian and Hindu traditions into their wedding ceremony, which was complete with a baraat, where the groom rode  in on a horse and the groom’s family danced around him. “Even though it was hot, Shashank’s family participated fully in the baraat by dancing for almost an hour!” Niyati said. The bride was then walked to the alter under a brightly colored scarf. Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the hotel for the 220 family members and friends in attendance. Guests sat at tables with orange and yellow floral centerpieces. The newlyweds surprised everyone during their first dance by breaking into a flash mob with family members to the song “Happy” by Pharrell. After dinner, traditional Indian desserts were passed around on a silver platter. Niyati advises couples not to sweat the small stuff. “Try to remember that it is your wedding but don’t be too rigid about every little detail.” See the full board here.
