Our sweet couple of the day bonded over their love of all things jazz. Raajit is an oncology fellow at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center/amateur saxophonist while Michelle is a professional saxophonist and adjunct instructor at Molloy College."Instead of a traditional first dance, we played a saxophone duet. Instead of a traditional bouquet toss, I hosted a unisex fortune toss - a breakaway bouquet of flowers with fortunes and lotto tickets tied to the stems."
Now let's talk food! You know the usual Indian wedding reception is not complete without butter chicken and naan. But our couple collaborated with Lisa Teiger of CuisinEtc.
to come up with an eclectic Indian fusion menu
that was inspired by the traditions of both families. A few of the many
- Tandoori shrimp atop cumin lime scented cream cheese on rice crackers
- Italian lollipops - fresh mozzarella and tomato skewers
- Brie and mango chutney foccacia pizzettes
My favorite part? The bhel puri chaat served in martini glasses. What a refreshing presentation!
From the bride:"We were very pleased with our photographic results from Tina Sbrigato. She was very professional, communicative, on time, and got every important shot for a very reasonable price.Our wedding ceremony and reception was truly about the coming together of two families- we could not have done it without every family member helping. It was a lot of work, but we thoroughly enjoyed the process and found it very meaningful."
