Namita and Don – June 9, 2013

Namita and Don were married on June 9, 2013, at the Franklin Plaza in Troy, NY surrounded by friends and family during deeply personal, fun and colorful wedding infused with their personalities! 
 
Namita and Don had a Hindu ceremony with some Western traditions mixed in.  The bridal party wore traditional Indian attire for the ceremony and festivities, Namita was stunning in her deep red lengha surrounded by her bridesmaids in bright blue, indigo, and teal saris. Don looked almost regal in his sherwani, especially when he arrived for the baraat riding a costumed horse named Sunny!
 
Namita and Don’s vision (and the help of some crafty friends) changed the look of the Franklin Plaza ballroom to feel like a bright and cheery Hindu wedding tent.  Elephants were scattered throughout the space in the ceremony and reception, with the centerpiece being a large paper mache elephant made by a good friend.  After a beautiful ceremony the bride and groom made a quick change into their Western wedding attire and arrived for their dance until you drop reception!  Namita and Don’s families were beaming with happiness throughout the day and everyone was touched by the parent dances and the toasts given by family.     

There was a fantastic team of vendors working this wedding!  Joe and the team at Franklin Plaza did a great job with all of the food and service throughout the day.  Niki Rossi was on hand for photos, and her videographer Ray Stockwell was there, too.  Niki you’re photos of this wedding are so great it was hard choosing just a few to feature here!  Fernando Bustamante from Piano Man rocked the dance floor, and Evan Euripidou from Anthology Studio did such a beautiful job with their flowers.  Alayne Curtis from Make Me Fabulous made the girls look simply stunning, Pandit Balu Dixit performed the blended ceremony, and Dolce and Biscotti made the couple’s tasty wedding cake.
 
Namita and Don’s day was so beautiful and filled with love and laughter, it will be a wedding to remember for me for and for everyone who attended!  Wishing you love and luck in the future!
 
XO Ginny
