Brooklyn bridge park wedding

Afsheen Lalani and Sashi Tanuku had a short hybrid Indian wedding. The ceremony was held at the steps at Granite Prospect at Pier 1 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, where we got engaged. Our ceremony included Ismaili, Hindu and American traditions. We then took everyone on a shuttle to the reception venue at My Moon. Where everyone was greated in the garden area with mango lassi in flutes, sangria and cava! We had five Indian fusion canapes also being catered by Junoon. We conducted a final Pokneka ceremony which is to welcome the bride into her husbands home and ward off evil. Everyone loved it! After cocktail hour everyone was greeted with thank you notes to their seats and the reception began with a phenomenal welcome speech by the bride’s dad and followed by sibling speeches with a break in the middle to play the shoe game. The reception speeches ended with a sentimental speak by the bride for the groom and finally the groom’s speech which roasted to the bride. There was a bouquet toss which everyone loved followed by cutting the cake and a first dance to Mumford and Sons song “There is a Time”. This was followed by a couples dance and then opened the floor where many guests were on the dance floor until the end of the night!! – written by Afsheen Lalani and Sashi Tanuku
