Sean & Jono's Smiley Hindu-Fusion Wedding {Seattle}

August 5, 2014 - by Nadya

Lovelies! Today's wedding is absolutely gorgeous.  It's classy and sweet and righteous.  I'm so excited to share with you another one of the couples we featured during National Pride Month.  Sean and Jono look svelte in their matching embroidered Nehru jackets and mehndi.  *sigh* It's all so pretty.

Sean and Jono held their wedding at the gorgeous Arctic Club in Downtown Seattle.  With it's high, golden dome and it's somewhat offbeat history as the main meeting room for Yukon gold rushers, it created the perfect atmosphere for their fusion Hindu Civil Ceremony.

The handsome grooms had two baraats entering from both corners of the Arctic Club.  Fully outfitted with dhol players and an army of smiling family and friends, I'm pretty sure they made the grandest entrance Seattle has ever seen.

Sean and Jono's wedding was a glorious display of love, tradition, and joy.

Mandev adds, "It was an honor to photograph the wedding of two of the kindest, most committed, and genuinely awesome people!  I remember leaving theirengagement session thinking, 'these guys have something special – commitment and patience.' It felt like their wedding was a celebration of these two pillars, and it was a time for friends and family to celebrate love… and a celebration it was!  The energy was incredible, and they were surrounded by so much love."
