A Lively Museum Wedding at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan

Sonal Singhal (32 and a scientist) and Bikram Chatterji (35 and a managing director) met online when they were both living in New York (she’s originally from Ohio). They later got engaged in Michigan, “where we made a home together,” Sonal says. It was important to showcase the state's beauty to out-of-town guests who traveled for the multiple-day celebration, which included a rehearsal dinner, a mehendi night, a sangeet, an abbreviated Hindu ceremony and a festive reception at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan. “We wanted to celebrate the history of Detroit and its hard-working, creative, passionate people,” Sonal says of selecting reception decor that highlighted the museum's existing exhibits and car collections. “Those were the elements that drew us to Detroit. We hope our guests felt some of that same magic.” —Chrissy Sorenson
