Tanya and Tushar // Virginia Rustic Indian Wedding
This rustic Indian wedding held at Riverside on the Potomac in Leesburg, Virginia featured a true blend of traditional Hindu elements and rustic, American details. The couple had a traditional baraat with the groom arriving on a decorated horse as well as a vintage style car for photos.
After a classic Hindu ceremony under a natural mandap, the couple also held a more personal ceremony led by their dear friend with vows they designed themselves. The guests enjoyed cocktail hour in the barn followed by dinner and dancing at long tables adorned with burlap and lace runners and simple Mason jar candles and sweet vases of brightly colored wild flowers. The barn was decorated with white lights and lanterns. Table numbers and escort cards echoed the colors and double elephant motif from the invitations. The cake was covered in a vivid purple paisley design.
The couple and guests danced long into the evening and then Tanya and Tushar exited the wedding while guests waved sparklers.
