Anjali and Carl had a beautiful, traditional Indian Christian wedding at Spruce Mountain Ranch this summer. These two met while they were in medical school and living in St. Louis. They became good friends until their relationship turned into more than just a friendship! After they graduated med school, they took a celebratory trip together through Italy. Carl proposed at a castle at sunset in Tuscany. Anjali said it was a total surprise!
Traditional Indian and Christian Wedding – Anjali + Carl
It was really important for Carl and Anjali to incorporate both of their cultural and religious traditions into their wedding day. Anjali wore a traditional Indian wedding Lehenga and had a mehndi henna ceremony before her wedding day. Carl wore a navy blue suit with the most amazing Star Wars socks! At the ceremony, they incorporated both Christian and Hindu traditions with a unity candle and Saptapadi, or 7 steps, ritual. They also incorporated saris into the wedding altar.
At the reception, they made sure both of their styles were represented in the decor. There were lots of wood elements, which Carl loves, and the whole wedding took place at a ranch. The decor was also bright and colorful, which is Anjali’s style. And the wedding cake was not just bright teal, but gold with exquisite henna design icing (with their names!). Their wedding reception was so much fun too! They had an amazing first dance, choreographed by their friends. They ended the night with an amazing dance party with both American and Indian music. No matter what was playing, everyone was on the dance floor!
