Rupa & Ian: An East Wind Inn Wedding

East Wind Inn wedding photos by NYC wedding photojournalist, Kelly Williams

Hi everyone!  I hope you are all having a good weekend.  The weather here is abysmal, and so I thought I would spread some cheer by sharing the joyously colorful photos from the wedding of Rupa and Ian.  They chose to have a traditional Indian wedding, complete with Hindu fire ceremony, to celebrate and honor Rupa’s cultural roots.  The wedding took place at East Wind Inn out on Long Island.  This is a family that loves to dance, and the mix of Indian and American house music was hopping.  Enjoy the pics!

But first, a few more details about the wedding: the day started with a bharat — the traditional Indian ceremony where the groom meets the bride’s wedding party.  In some bharats, the groom arrives in a fancy car or even on an elephant, but Ian dispensed with any fancy mode of transportation and used his own two feet to greet Rupa’s family.  The ceremony itself was a full Hindu fire ceremony, complete with the family hiding a shoe of the groom at the end of the ceremony.

For the reception, the bride changed into a beautiful, white sari.  The photo booth was a huge hit with guests, as was the Indian music blasting on the dance floor.

Ceremony & reception venue: East Wind Inn
