Highlights. Sonia and Christopher wanted a fusion wedding that highlighted both of their backgrounds, from the food, to the ceremony, to the clothing, music and decor. Both sides of the families really embraced the fusion concept, combining the vibrancy of the Indian culture with a classic Washington, DC vibe. For the Mehendi Party the day before the wedding, we used many vibrant colors in an “Indian blowout” complete with singing, Indian and Contemporary Jazz dancing, and henna. Sonia designed the wedding reception gown she wore herself, with a nod to both cultures, by combining Indian embroidery on a more classic western trumpet silhouette.The ceremony was a combined Hindu (performed by a Hindu priest) and Christian (performed by a reverend) ceremony under a regal mandap. For the wedding reception, we designed with a timeless romantic aesthetic, with two tablescape designs using navy blue, gold, blush pinks and ivory. indian wedding Washington DC coed mehndi party fashion whittemore houseindian wedding Washington DC coed mehndi party whittemore house dance performanceindian wedding Washington DC coed mehndi party rangoliindian wedding Washington DC coed mehndi party bhavna naik henna artistindian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotel baraatbaraat indian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotelindian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotel hindu christian ceremony gold dome mandapindian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotel hindu christian ceremonyindian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotel interfaith ceremonyindian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotel state ballroomindian fusion wedding Washington DC fashionindian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotel grand ballroom navy gold whiteWashington DC Mayflower Hotel wedding antique mirror table clear chivari chairs blueindian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotel university of maryland bhangra danceindian fusion wedding Washington DC Mayflower Hotel fluffy thoughts wedding cake textured buttercream Event Partners: Wedding Planner: Vicky Choy, Event Accomplished Mehendi Party Venue: Whittemore House, Washington, DC Henna Artist: Bhavna Naik Mehendi Party Hair & Makeup: Bridal Artistry Mehendi Party Caterer: Bollywood Bistro Rehearsal Dinner: Old Ebbitt Grill Wedding Ceremony & Reception Venue: Mayflower Hotel, Washington, DC Wedding Gown Designer: Mona Vora Groom’s Attire: Burberry Photographer: Kurstin Roe Videographer: Shutter and Sound Films Wedding Reception Caterer: Bollywood Bistro and the Mayflower Hotel Florals and Decor: Prabha Bhambri, Nivanjoli Rentals: DC Rental and Davinci’s Baker: Fluffy Thoughts DJ and Dholi for Mehendi Party and for Wedding reception:Dynasty Entertainment Wedding Hair & Makeup: Carola Myers Lighting: Mayflower Hotel Horse for Baraat: Harmon’s Hayrides and Carriages Classic Car: Regal Limousine Officiants: Panditji Bhatta and Rev.
