As a wedding planner, I get to work with couples of different faiths and cultures, and I have been blessed to have some wonderful couples. This week I am excited to share Kathlynn and Nishan’s multicultural wedding at The Bolger Center in Potomac, MD. These two are one of the nicest couples you will meet; throughout our year plus of working together we developed a great bond and friendship. It was wonderful to see all of their details come together, it was such a beautiful and fun celebration! Kathlynn and Nishan’s wedding day included a stunning and traditional Hindu ceremony and Christian ceremony. Photographer Kate Fine Art was there to capture everything! I am honored to have been able to work with Kathlynn and Nishan, here is part 1 of their day!
Kathlynn started the day getting ready with her mom, sister (and brother) at The Bolger Center hotel. Alison Harper from Alison Harper & Co and Makeup by Mimi Tran did a wonderful job on their hair and make-up. Kathlynn, who is a beautiful lady, looked stunning on her wedding day! She was truly glowing with love and happiness.
Kathlynn and Nishan chose to do a “First Look” and family pictures prior to their ceremonies. I love the photos that Kate captured!
Their wedding ceremony was led by Priest Harish, who did a wonderful job. It was a beautiful wedding for Kathlynn and Nishan.
To start a Hindu ceremony, the groom is processed down the aisle first. There are several customs and traditions before the bride enters.
To incorporate Kathlynn’s faith, they chose to end with the lighting of a memory candle to honor Kathlynn’s father, followed by a Christian Ceremony.
The beautiful photos are all from Kate Fine Art Photography. Part 2 photos will be posted later this week.
