Oscar and Shaivi’s Fusion Wedding Part II
Our wedding was nothing short of incredible! It was a dream come true, not only because of our union and a long time coming but because of the beautiful fusion of both of our cultures and seeing so much happiness and love in our parents and all of our family members’ eyes! Our wedding extravaganza lasted 4 days with 7 events among 5 venues and over 30+ vendors. Check out our first day of events by CLICKING HERE.
We had traditional Indian festivities where we started the pre-wedding ceremony from my home, had a colorful and bright henna night, and a beautiful luxurious Indian wedding and reception at The Pierre in New York City, with a Central Park Baraat as the highlight! We also celebrated Mexican style with a timeless Catholic Ceremony in Oscar’s hometown church, a fiesta-filled Mexican Sangeet, a live mariachi band, a 16-piece Mexican Banda, home-cooked Authentic Oaxacan food by Oscar himself, and custom favors designed and hand-woven by Oscar’s family back in Mexico! The wedding concept and vision was planned by me and along with the help of our wedding planner, Urvashi Mishra of Electric Karma, we were able to execute flawlessly. All our friends, family and vendors worked so hard to make our wedding an absolute dream come true and we couldn’t be more grateful to each and every one of them!
