Real Bull City Wedding: Rickhouse Indian Fusion Wedding

Real Bull City Wedding: Rickhouse Indian Fusion Wedding

We are so excited to feature Carolyn Scott Photography's Indian Fusion Wedding at the Rickhouse this Fall on The Durham Bride!  This wedding had it all - beautiful families, abundant colors, and the biggest spread of both Indian and American inspired food. They had an American buffet with barbecue! They had an Indian buffet with curry! They had cake! They had puddings! They had a sundae bar! They had a tater tot bar!

More about the couple, from CSP: 'They are perfect for each other and make each other laugh often. Kate has a wonderful set of perfect teeth so it’s good that Parag keeps her laughing so we can admire them. This was their second wedding to each other. Their first was a traditional Hindu ceremony, and this was their American and Indian fusion wedding. Kate sent me the pictures from their first one which were amazing, and Kate wore a really incredible nose ring that was so large it defied the laws of gravity. Their Indian-fusion wedding was lacking in the nose ring department, but it made up for it with amazing henna designs in the shape of little elephants and brilliant colors sprinkled all over their ceremony and reception. There were traditional Indian dances and American popcorn next to the Durham Bull’s old baseball field. The little kids dismantled their incredible floral altar during the reception and threw repeatedly threw the flowers down Parag’s suit jacket, and they danced away the night with their fabulous family and friends.'

What we love: We cannot get enough of the roaming portraits the couple had with Carolyn.  This has become an unofficial guide to first look and portrait spots in Downtown.  We also adore the way the couple embraced both cultures and the vibrancy of it all.

Congrats to Kate and Parag!
