Maharani Wedding Feature: Supriya & Steven

We love fusion weddings, and Supriya and Steven’s was a special one! Everything about their day was truly remarkable and we’re so glad we were able to be a part of it. Their wedding was featured on Maharani Weddings, so we wanted to highlight some of our favorite photos and the amazing vendors that were involved. If you’re planning to have a fusion wedding, we hope this will bring you some inspiration!

We know we come from very different backgrounds, cultures, and religious traditions. So throughout the planning process, our North Star was the idea of “One True Fusion Ceremony,” which was a lot of fun to brainstorm!

We wanted the important elements of each of us represented. I wore a white dress as a nod to Stevie’s culture, and he wore an Indian suit for me. My bridesmaids represented my tradition in red lenghas, and the groomsmen represented his culture, in black tuxedos. Our ceremony featured both a western Officiant and a Hindu Pandit. We had Bible Readings and Hindu Mantras, recited our own Vows and even Broke the Glass. Our wedding had everything from the Henna to the Horah! Even our hashtag (#OneLesserMenon) combined both our last names and embraced the spirit of unity. Before the wedding day we had a Mehendi, Rehearsal Dinner, and Sangeet — this rounded out all the traditions of our families. It was a wonderful, colorful, and authentic wedding for the two of us.
