Vinati and Ben’s fusion wedding was a lively, full day affair! The day began with a festive Baraat, as guests surrounded Ben and a dhol player drummed along with fun music that transported Ben to be greeted by Vinati’s parents in traditional Indian custom. Ben and the guests then entered the ceremony room where the stage was set in beautiful colors of fuchsia, orange, and gold for the Hindu ceremony. Vinati was radiant in her fuchsia and gold gown as she entered the ceremony with a floral canopy overhead. Following the traditional ceremony, guests moved into a pavilion ballroom for a delicious Indian buffet dinner. Vinati and Ben then changed into more western style attire for the evening event: a reception held in a beautiful downtown Dallas ballroom. The ballroom was decorated with ivory linens, chiavari chairs, fuchsia and green floral centerpieces, and soft pink uplighting. Guests enjoyed a tasty American dinner as well as decorative and tasty bundt cakes for dessert. A performance from Ben’s university’s western dance team delighted the guests during dinner. The DJ packed the dance floor for the rest of the evening before the newlyweds’ wonderful downtown send-off.
