Indian Weddings Sarasota

Shilpa and Patrick’s Indian Wedding at the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota
Sunday morning kicked off with the groom’s baraat (groom’s processional).   In lieu of a white horse, Patrick chose to ride in a beautiful white vintage car.  The baraat, complete with Dhol drummer,  lasted 45 minutes and concluded at the Ritz-Carlton ballroom porte-cochère.  Everyone was dancing and, as the baraat approached, Shilpa’s family was there to greet Patrick … it was a very sweet scene.

Shilpa and Patrick’s Bollywood Style Wedding Reception at Ringling Museum
Shilpa, and Patrick, celebrated an amazing Indian-Irish Catholic fusion wedding weekend.  Each and every day was full of beautiful and memorable moments.

Their beautiful Bollywood style wedding reception was the culmination of wedding festivities kicked off a few days before with the Mehendi and Sangeet Ceremonies.  Then on Saturday afternoon we had a Catholic wedding at St. Martha’s with an evening reception at the Ritz-Carlton Members Beach Club.  The following morning we had the traditional groom’s baraat followed by the Indian wedding ceremony, in the ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton, and then a luncheon for all.

The grand finale was the reception at the Ringling Museum.  Cocktails were held on the Ca’d’Zan Terrace and then guests were taken by trolleys to enjoy dinner and dancing in the Museum Courtyard.
