Their wedding ceremony embraced a marriage of two women while incorporating traditional Indian/Hindu elements. Both women arrived as part of the 'baarat' and Katherine wore a western style white wedding dress with an Indian dupatta. They took turns leading each other around agnidev (fire) and exchanged jai malas.

The wedding reception featured an adorable first dance, a massively awesome dessert table with macarons, mithai, and cupcakes and lots of dancing (of course!).
