Palace Inspired Indian Wedding in Dallas, Texas

When Vidhya and Kishore couldn’t travel to India for their Indian palace wedding (after already postponing the wedding three times), they decided to bring India to the United States. With only 4 weeks to plan their 3 day wedding weekend nonetheless.

Firstly, the couple needed a venue and fell in love with The Olana. A mansion on the outskirts of Dallas, TX. The mansion’s vast grounds, fountains, pools, and chandeliers mirrored the European influences of the palaces in India.

The couple have both lost their mothers but they were able to bring them into the wedding celebrations. They used their moms as the inspiration for the design. The couple worked with an amazing team of vendors to create three unique and beautiful events. Similarly, the couple’s attire for each celebration matched the design and set the tone for the weekend.

Indian Wedding Style

As a tribute to Vidhya’s mother’s wedding dress, the couple selected pale green colors for the ceremony. Therefore, the bride wore a custom green lehenga gown. She paired the gown with a gold necklace and earrings with uncut diamonds, emeralds, and pearls. She completed the look gold bangles.

Finally, for the evening Sangeet, the florist Prashe created a chic oasis with a custom emerald green dance floor. To match the bohemian vibe, the bride wore a Payal Singhal gown paired with a top by Cinq a Sept. The groom wore a blue sherwani embroidered with the wedding date. Even though the wedding was not what the couple initially planned it was a weekend to remember.
