For Judy + Prem, their goal for their big day was to combine their two unique heritages (hers, Taiwanese + his, Indian) into one sophisticated wedding celebration full of rich color and unique design elements. To pull that off, they entrusted the talented team at The Nouveau Romantics for the day’s event design, planning + florals – and we love how they filled the setting at Brazos Hall in Austin, Texas with saturated red hues to bring vibrant visual interest, paired with subtler orange, cream, and metallic tones to help soften the dark, moody space.
We are as in love with meaningful, cultural ceremony as we are with the striking, candlelit reception. And there’s no better way to show all of than off that to jump right into the stunning wedding-day captures below by James Moes!
↑ We’re in love with this ombre bridal bouquet! ↑
Judy + Prem looked stylish in Reem Acra (for her) and Burberry (for him) but, we have to say, we’re loving the traditional attire they wore during their Hindu ceremony even more! See what we mean in just a sec…
INLOVE with all the red! So bold + captivating…
The Nouveau Romantics share, Keeping in line with traditional Indian wedding customs, Prem arrived at the ceremony riding a white horse in a baraat, a traditional groom’s procession, surrounded by musicians, family, and friends.
The traditional Hindu wedding ceremony included rose petals for tossing, auspicious liquids, such as milk, honey, and ghee (clarified butter), puffed rice to be offered to the gods through the sacred fire, coconuts, and an image of the deity Ganesh.
The dramatic reception lighting + metallic touches incorporated into the modern, industrial space at Brazos Hall set the perfect stage for a lively evening filled with good food + fun vibes.
The best part of the day was dancing to hip hop music at the reception.
Embrace your family cultures and also the spirit of your relationship. It will create an authentic, unique and memorable experience for your family, friends and for the two of you.
