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.
