A wedding is not just a blending of families, but it is often times a blending of cultures. For this couple it rang true, as they wanted to blended both their Indian and Chinese backgrounds for an elegant wedding and celebration with their closest family and friends.
Their wedding took place at the Hare Krishna Temple and National Ballet of Canada, a nod to both the old and new. Beyond the lovely traditional attire that was worn for the temple, the bride changed into a custom made sari that was inspired by the Chinese qipao with the mandarin collar. Guests enjoyed a family style Chinese and Indian fusion meal from Daniel et Daniel, accented by cookie favours with both henna and Chinese influence. Decor was kept understated, to compliment the very modern and light-filled studio at the National School of Ballet. Their colour palette was also a blending of traditional colours, with ivory and gold accented by pops of fuschia, berry and red created by Coquette Studio.
They started off the day with a graceful ceremony at the temple and ended off their night with table toasting, a traditional Chinese practice. It was a beautiful celebration and we were thrilled to be a part of it. Captured so beautifully by Aron Goss Photography.
