Modern Telugu & Gujarati Hindu Wedding at the Hyatt Regency Burlingame

2018 Jul 1 - by Preeti
What a chic wedding we have today! Our multi-ethnic couple, Kavya and Saumil, blended their Telugu-Gujarati ceremony into a modern Hindu wedding.

Having a colorful Garba a couple prior to the wedding, Kavya wore a navy blue lehenga with peach accents along with heavy floor embroidery. Saumil matched her with a navy blue kurta pajamas and a gold Nehru jacket. TM's Makeup Artistry completed her hair and makeup ensemble.

On the wedding day, Kavya wore a classic red toned South Indian saree with gold kamerband belt and matching jewelry. All of the bride's jewelry were custom designed in Hyderabad and Mumbai, India.

Saumil came in a white house for a traditional baraat entrance and ponkhwanu welcoming to kick off the wedding.

Kayva uncle's escorted her down the aisle in the kanya aagaman.

By far our favorite moment in this Telugu wedding was the thamalbralu, the showering of tumeric colored rice on each other. It usually turns into a competition between the bride and groom, and it's fair to say the bride won!

For the wedding reception, they choose modern colors in blush peach, cream, and gold. It was a dreamy Indian reception. Our bride wore her hair down with curls in her gorgeous pink blush lehenga. Makeup was on fleek featuring a dramatic, but not over the top, eye shadow.
