Sujaritha and Andy fused a traditional Indian ceremony with a Texas-inspired reception, and we couldn’t love it more! The couple’s fairytale began online, eventually making the two realize they were soulmates. Andy proposed with his great grandmother’s ring at their home around the dinner table with their three kids. Sujaritha said, “It was simple, sweet, and heartfelt. The joy I felt was shared around the table and was as genuine as it gets!” We absolutely love that!
Sujaritha and Andy’s wedding day began with Sujaritha and her two best friends getting ready for a truly special day! Surrounded by their friends and family in a picturesque garden setting, the sun filtering through a lovely canopy of trees, Sujaritha was ready to walk down the aisle. Sujaritha shared, “I could feel a sense of serene joy wash over me, as I listened to my son Vik’s beautiful original composition “Ethereal Walk,” which he made for this very moment! I could not stop smiling as I looked at him waiting at the end of the path to walk me down the aisle to the ceremony and Andy!”
Sujaritha and Andy incorporated three meaningful rituals in their Indian wedding ceremony. Their Hindu priest Paresh Pathak was able to describe the significance of these rituals to all the guests. In addition, the entire wedding party wore traditional Indian attire for the ceremony. After saying their I do’s, the couple and bridal party transitioned into their Texas-inspired attire. Sujaritha and Andy opened their reception with their first dance. The couple danced to another original composition by Sujaritha’s son. Certainly extremely special! The couple shared, “the reception contained laughter and dancing from friends and family. The joy and warmth in the room were not just from a typical warm June evening in Texas.” Pharris Photos + Films captured all the stunning images below.

Sujaritha and Andy’s Favorite Wedding Detail:
“I am originally from India and my husband is from Texas. We had a blended ceremony and incorporated rituals from an Indian wedding as well as an American wedding. The entire wedding party wore traditional Indian attire for the ceremony and we all changed into western attire for the reception.”
