Pooja Ruhi Rastogi & Krishnan Perumbala - Indicative of modern Indian weddings, the mandap was heavily draped in a stunning spray of brightly colored flowers by Petaloso.
To honor their Indian ancestry, Pooja and Krish Perumbala made sure their Holy City wedding represented both Indian and American customs. The ceremony was decidedly Indian traditional, while the reception was more American in style.
Adhering to tradition, Krish donned an Indian sherwani while Pooja wore a richly embroidered saffron red lengha, accessorized with mehndi body art and ornate jewelry, including the heirloom nose ring her mother had worn at her own wedding.
The invitation suite came from Delhi-based Shivam Cards and adhered to their wedding palette of pink, coral, orange, and red.
While Indian weddings do not customarily include bridesmaids and groomsmen, Pooja and Krish’s wedding party was substantial—30 people in total, including two maids of honor and two best men.
The reception, with its neutral champagne and gold palette and simple greenery, ushered in a more American aesthetic.
The menu featured both American and Indian cuisine.
For the reception, Krish sported a tuxedo, while Pooja wore an ivory gown from Muse by Berta.
