Being of different faiths Diya and Sameer had two ceremonies the same day. The first of their ceremonies was to honor the Hindu side of the family which was held overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The mandap that they got married under was covered in soft pink and white flowers decorated by florist Organic Elements. I am loving the soft colors that many brides are leaning towards for their wedding colors. It creates such a romantic tone for their wedding ceremony.
The second of their ceremonies was to honor the Sikh side of the family and was held indoors adjacent to their Hindu ceremony. One of my favorite moments from their Sikh ceremony was when Diya’s brother and cousins walked her around the ceremony site. It was really sweet to see the care that they had when walking with Diya and Sameer.
As a wedding photographer I see many inter-faith weddings. I really love that the families embrace one another’s rituals and beliefs. It makes for such a great day and allows us to capture many great memories for both sides of the families.
