East Meets West


Normal Indian weddings do not have bridal parties, but this bride wanted to Westernize it and include a bridal party. Nina Gookli and Adam Bramer had the traditional Indian ceremony but put a little Western spin on it by having the bridal party walk down the aisle as well. Pandit performed the beautiful ceremony with both Nina and Adam dressed in Indian formal wedding attire. In going with the theme of fusion, they opted for an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception at the Sheraton Harbor’s ballroom.

The bride then changed from the red sari to the white dress, which normally is not worn in Indian weddings but the bride as I mentioned was Westernized

Nina chose tropical flowers like Birds of Paradise that were vibrant in color that complimented her theme: East meets West.

The couple had a sitar player during the cocktail reception where Indian food was served. Their grand entrance  was more traditional in terms of Western weddings with the bridal party and then the couple entering.
