What made you choose the outfits you did for this event?
Our outdoor June ceremony and reception in Iowa blended Hindu, Jewish, secular, South American, and North American traditions. We were looking for a vibrant, contemporary, ethically made, lightweight, and totally one-of-a-kind look.
I was instantly drawn to the Harleen Kaur yellow floral lehenga, and that was our jumping off point. It was a dream to wear Harleen’s gorgeous, unique, multicultural designs. We felt like our HK outfits perfectly highlighted our tastes as individuals and complemented our vivid color palette.
We also loved the versatility: for the ceremony, we both donned traditional Maharashtrian bridal and groom adornments, including mundavalya (a string of pearls worn on the forehead) and green glass bangles.
For the reception, I changed tops and Will opened up his vest for a more casual party look. It was especially exciting to consult with Harleen and the team to design Will’s custom vest and my fuschia top and dupatta, and then to see everything come together, from conversations in the showroom to digital renderings to, finally, the real thing.
