A Traditional Indian Wedding at A'Bulae in St. Paul, Minnesota
Planning one gorgeous celebration isn't easy, but Vineeta Lall (Registered Nurse) and Neil Ramdhan (Geotechnical Engineer) did it right and partied for five days. One day included a traditional Hindu wedding ceremony at Sri Venkateswara Balaji Hindu Temple in Edina, Minnesota. With its massive arches out front and an auditorium large enough for their 400 guests as well as the mandap, it was one of the few Hindu temples that caught their attention. Shades of red and gold colored everything for a ultra-traditional look. Everything about the ceremony—from Vineeta's traditional palanquin entrance to the flower malas—was thick with family and cultural traditions. The next day, the party continued with a Western-inspired reception at A'Bulae in St. Paul, Minnesota. Since purple is Vineeta's favorite color, she made sure the hue colored everything from the attire to the centerpieces and the lighting. It was accented with metallic silver and bright green for a summery aura. See all our favorite details from this traditional meets modern wedding, beautifully captured by LaceHanky Photography, below.
