This afternoon I have an awesome wedding video to share courtesy of Washington, DC wedding videographer, KD Productions. I am continually in awe of how elaborate and HUGE Indian weddings are. Whenever I think about how over-whelmed I felt sometimes with planning my 135-person wedding, I just cannot imagine what it’s like to plan an Indian wedding that usually entails over 300 people and takes over 3 days to execute.
Thanks to Katie, I get to share Part 1 of a real Maryland, Indian & American wedding ~ the wedding of Alex & Sukhmani. The video today showcases the traditional Ladies Sangeet – a bridal shower that the family of the bride throws to kick off the entire wedding celebration. It featured 200 guests … the shower … 200 guests … *mouth gapes open*.
Sukhmani shares more:
Alex and I had two weddings; Indian and American. The festivities started with the traditional Ladies Sangeet, a bridal shower that the family of the bride throws to kick off the celebration. We celebrated with 200 guests, music and great food! Our Indian ceremony took place at the Silver Spring Gurudwara on May 5th. A week later, 110 friends and family joined us for our Western Wedding on May 11th at Oxon Hill Manor in Maryland. It was a beautiful day and we had a garden ceremony overlooking the Patomic River. It was funny that even though we both were already married, we felt butterflies. The entire night was filled with eating, drinking and dancing; just the way we wanted.
It was so great to see two families from different cultures embrace each other. The entire journey was truly magical and unforgettable!
