Southern Elegance Fusion Wedding at Hilton Head {South Carolina}

February 9, 2017 - by Kate

This beautiful autumn Hindu Christian fusion wedding in Hilton Head, South Carolina is all about fall elegance with a Southern twist. We just love the beachy, laid-back vibes.

Bride Nisha and groom Ryan live in Atlanta and decided to host family and friends who traveled from all over the country on Hilton Head Island. Nisha is Hindu and Ryan is Christian, so the wedding incorporated both religions.

Family and friends danced up a storm to get into the wedding spirit Friday night at Nisha's Sangeet.

Saturday marked Ryan riding a traditional white horse through the Sonesta Hilton Head Resort for the Baraat. Ryan sparked many hotel guest's interest when he rode by on his horse!

A spectacular mandap was constructed near the beach, with gorgeous blue sky and palm trees swaying gently in the breeze. Nisha was walked down the aisle by her aunt, who had traveled all the way from India for the wedding.

A pujari performed a traditional Hindu ceremony and immediately afterwards, Ryan's father (who is a pastor), conducted a Christian ceremony with an exchange of vows and wedding rings.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed traditional Indian food at a reception at the hotel. Nisha is a huge Disney fan, so her first dance with Ryan included acting out scenes from Aladdin and a full, ballroom-style dance to "A Whole New World." No we're not crying. It's just a little something in our eye.

Congratulations Nisha and Ryan! Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness.
