Indian Fusion wedding in Austin

Marigold Events has a beautiful feature of Eric and Shalou’s Indian fusion wedding (Indian and western).  As a photographer, I’m impressed by the thoughtfulness and planning that went into their wedding. They planned not just one, but two full ceremonies, with stylish and significant details as a way to honor the heritage of each of their cultural backgrounds.  What an achievement, and a pretty one at that!

My favorite moment:  Eric riding in on a white horse for the baraat, accompanied by both a dhol band and a marching band (with Shalou watching from her room upstairs while the wedding guests danced and escorted Eric to the ceremony).  The Indian ceremony was in a ballroom at the Four Seasons followed by a brunch with classic sitar music.  Later that day the celebration moved to Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center for a western ceremony and lots of dancing, including a Bollywood dance by the bridal party that was a fantastic surprise.

    One of my favorite weddings, no doubt…we were honored to be their wedding planner, helping them pull together their epic day. Guests arrived at 10am at the Four Seasons and partied all the way thru to 12midnight at the Wildflower Center…magnificent! Every vendor involved did a fantastic job and Suzi Q captured it perfectly on film.

    A marathon day, for sure…I did 15 hours of coverage myself, can only imagine the house everyone else did, creating a fantastic wedding for Shalou and Eric!

    What gorgeous photography! As the Baraat and Vidaai horse provider, we often don’t get to see all of the other beautiful elements of our clients’ weddings so it was delicious to see these photos!!! – Lisa, Angeli Carriages
