Bollywood Party Meets Traditional Indian Ceremony in Maui Wedding

Here is something we don’t often feature on Love & Lavender’s wedding blog — an ethnic/cultural wedding! I have a feeling we need to showcase a lot more after today’s glamorous destination wedding in Maui, Hawaii.

The bride’s intricate outfits and henna tattoos are just wonderful, as are the number of flowers adorning that ceremony space!

“This is one of the most unique weddings we’ve been to. Our modern Indian bride and groom who grew up in New York chose the breathtaking Andaz Maui as their wedding destination.

“Instead of having a traditional Indian wedding or more westernized wedding, they chose to keep both of them in the 3 main events (welcome party, ceremony and reception) over two days.

“The welcome party was a modern Bollywood style event. The ceremony incorporated all the traditional Indian wedding elements including the barratt with groom on the white horse!

“The reception was a more westernized ballroom event. We are obsessed with the fashion, the colors, the culture and our stunning bride!”
