Prarthana and Abhishek’s families are originally from South and North India and therefore they had two Hindu ceremonies. First, it was a traditional Tamil, South Indian Ceremony. Prarthana wore a Kanjeevaram sari with traditional jewelry and hair that was in a braid decorated with beautiful jasmine flowers.
Wedding Documentary was shooting two weddings that weekend, one team was covering a wedding in Las Vegas, Nevada and the second team was here in California at Dolce Hayes Mansion covering this beautiful wedding. We have collaged both the south and north Indian ceremonies side by side to show the beautiful amalgamation of North and South Indian ceremonies.
