Being raised in the Western world but with Eastern influences can give you the best of both worlds. But the tricky part comes when you want to incorporate both of those worlds in your wedding. Today's modern bride wants to incorporate traditional aspects to the wedding, while also making it personal and relatable. This can definitely be a challenging task, which is why I admire Nishita for the ceremony she created.
While Nishita and Yosef wore Indian attire, they incorporated traditions from Yosef's African American traditions like the jumping of the broom. These two lovebirds also wrote their own vows. Writing your own vows is a great way to make the wedding ceremony all about you and your prince and the love you share. While it does bring on the waterworks, nothing can be more romantic than declaring your love and commitment to your spouse.
Siiigh...you can just feel the romance in Nishita and Yosef's unique ceremony held at the Degas House
in New Orleans. For those of you who don't know, Degas was a famous artist who would visit this house to paint in and the house is covered with his artwork. How neat is that?!
