Global Village | September 1, 2013 | Photos by Alante Photography


NAMES Trisha Dwivedi and Adam Feldman LIVE IN South Lake Union OCCUPATIONS She’s a finance manager; he’s an investment manager WEDDING-DAY WEATHER Perfect; cloudless and 70 WEDDING TIME 10am for the Hindu ceremony; 6pm for the Jewish ceremony NUMBER OF GUESTS 270 THEIR APPROACH TO WEDDING PLANNING Neither of them had ever given any thought to pulling something like this off and even with a planner they found it exhausting, but to be fair the weekend celebration included two ceremonies, two receptions, and the blending of two very different cultures WEDDING MOOD They wanted every guest to feel like an essential part of the wedding; they wanted the Hindu components to feel light, airy, and colorful, and the Jewish components to be classy, elegant, and inspired by New York City ONE WAY THEY INVOLVED EVERYONE For the Hindu baraat, or groom procession, they had all of their guests join Adam while he made his way through downtown Seattle PROCESSIONAL SONGS “Life in Technicolor” by Coldplay for the Hindu ceremony, Pachelbel’s “Canon in D” for the Jewish one RECEPTION MENUS Curry salmon and chicken tikka masala after the first; halibut and short ribs after the second FAVORITE MENU ELEMENT S’mores at the Jewish reception FAVORITE RECEPTION MOMENT At the end of the night, gold confetti shot into the crowd while Rihanna’s “We Found Love” played FAVORS FOR GUESTS Welcome bags with infographic itineraries, cookies, water, Advil, and granola as well as sandals for the ladies and sunglasses printed with “I Love Trisha & Adam” IF THEY KNEW THEN WHAT THEY KNOW NOW They would have started planning much earlier and done it all themselves THREE WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE DAY Epic, beautiful, best HONEYMOON Thailand

I outfitted Adam with a GoPro camera on top of the horse and had two shooters following him. It was one of the most epic processions I’ve ever seen.
