Over Easter weekend on Saturday, April 15th Amruta and Emmitte welcomed their guests to Keswick Vineyards with a taste of our sparkling wine. It was the perfect way to set the tone of the day!
If you tuned into our blog last week, you’ll remember that one of our favorite things about weddings here are the different cultures we’re able to experience through them. Like our couple last week, we were again able to celebrate another cultured wedding at Keswick Vineyards!
Amruta and Emmitte joined together with their families to bring them together in Christian and Hindu marital bliss. In traditional Christian weddings there are prayers the couple will share and bible readings their guests will bless them with to wish them a fruitful marriage. Similarly, in Hindu fashion there are a series of steps that both welcome in a new member of the family and send them off into marriage on the right foot.
The ceremonies are one part we love about fusion weddings, but that’s just where to fun starts! Throughout the day more rituals unraveled and their wedding day was pieced together in a way that beautifully represented both sides of the family. All details from her traditional “American” wedding dress paired with her absolutely stunning gold heels, to the bright pops of color in their flowers, down to the sari she changed into to dance the night away were well thought out and perfect for combining their two lives into one.
Thank you to all of our vendor friends who helped make this day so magical!
