Multi-Day Hindu Wedding Masterpiece
This will be the first summer wedding season since Covid began without any guest, mask, or vaccine restrictions. And as such, many couples who have been delaying their big wedding plans, are finally getting to have that dream wedding. This is especially the case for Southasian couples as their events can include very large guest counts and multiple days. Priya & Pathik have been planning this multi-day Hindu Wedding for a while. They live in California, but the bulk of their family live in Toronto. So this will inevitably be a destination wedding for them, but local for me.
The events for this wedding are scattered across 4 days. Two are pretty small scale with close family and traditional ceremonies. While the other two days were big celebrations with even bigger guest counts. This also happened to be one of the best organized multiday Hindu Weddings I have ever done. Every traditional element was planned out and kept on schedule. And as a result, the couple actually got to enjoy the days with their family.
Day 4 Wedding Day
The wedding day of a Hindu Wedding is no doubt the longest day. The ceremony itself lasts about 3 hours. And there is normally an outfit change before the reception. This couple had both their ceremony and reception at Deer Creek Golf Course. The ceremony was outdoors. The venue’s main gazebo was transformed into a traditional mandap for the hindu ceremony.
We did do some couple portraits around the grounds before everyone had to go in and change. That intermission was a great chance for my team to reenergize after the long weekend. The remaining reception was kept pretty simple. First dance, speeches, and a lot of photos with the guests. Considering the guests at this event have been partying for the last 4 days, I was pleasantly surprised that they still had an energetic dance floor. Always love some good energy at a reception party. They make for some great photos.
