Taj Boston Spring Wedding – A Jewish and Hindu Multicultural Celebration

May 22, 2017

We love when couples are able to bring their own unique history, story, and traditions into the celebration of their wedding day, and this beautiful Taj Boston spring wedding was the perfect reflection of brides Channah and Shikha.

This two-day celebration was a unique mix between the couple’s heritage — Channah’s Jewish traditions and Shikha’s Hindu traditions made for a truly one-of-a-kind wedding weekend. The events began on Friday with a Mehndi celebration and rehearsal dinner at the Park Plaza with toasts, dinner, and traditional Indian dancing from Shikha’s friends. Both brides wore gorgeous green saris, which matched perfectly with the spring trees in the Public Garden where we took the couple for photos before the party.

Saturday’s wedding day was held at the Taj Boston Rooftop, and began with the couple’s first look in the Boston Public Garden surrounded by friends and family. Channah wore a beautiful  white wedding gown while Shikha wore a traditional ornate red and gold sari.

The day’s events featured both Hindu and Jewish traditions, with a ketubah signing, a chuppa, and both Jewish and Hindu prayers during the wedding ceremony on the Rooftop. Guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner, and traditional Indian and Jewish dancing as they celebrated this wonderful couple on their very special wedding day!

From the couple: We are so glad to celebrate with our family and friends! We hope for a wedding day full of spring colors, blushes, ivories, sage greens – that celebrates both of our cultures and religions. We have been together for 6 years and are overjoyed to be making it official!

Congratulations to this beautiful couple, and thank you for letting us be a part of your extraordinary Taj Boston Spring wedding.
