Averill Park, NY
Inder and Mike's colorful, tradition based wedding day began at a Sikh temple - where groom Mike was cerebrated in traditional Sikh fashion. A drummer announced his arrival and family members crowned him with a traditional beaded veil. A prayer was said and family members from the bride and groom's families symbolically exchanged flower garlands. The families stepped into the temple after a quick breakfast and all eyes were on Inder as she arrived in a stunning red beaded gown. The couple sat for the Sikh wedding ceremony and took photos with friends and family before heading to the Old Daley on Crooked Lake. On the grounds, Mike and Inder took some fun formal photos in their Indian church outfits before separating to get ready for their American ceremony. Inder and her bridesmaids sat for hair and makeup before several experts from Inder's family joined them to help tie their Saris. Inder stunned once again in a beaded white two piece dress. Mike and Inder shared a sweet "first look" in their new outfits before more formals ahead of the ceremony. A short but sweet American ceremony followed lakeside, officiated by a close friend of the couple. The newlyweds shared champagne and took family photos before stepping inside for the party of the year! The Crooked Lake House was transformed into a multicultural dance party, complete with Caribbean food to honor Mike's heritage. The couple even gave out Mike's own homemade hot sauce as a favor! Congratulations to this awesome couple!!
