Continuing National Pride Month, dedicated to love and equality, we have a lovely wedding for you!
Yana and Archita had a truly mixed cultured, mixed religious, mixed everything wedding that was a ball of goodness!
From homemade Russian vodka (by dad of course!) to bindis and bangles, this adorable couple got married and celebrated their Russian Jewish and Indian Hindu heritages all in one.
This is a colorful and happy lesbian wedding you cannot miss! For the full story and more photos, visit our sister blog, The Big Fat Indian Wedding.
In Hindu weddings, the couple walks around a fire seven times, known as the saptpadi. In Jewish weddings, a bride walks around the groom seven times. Yana and Archita combined both cultures and walked around a unity candle together.
Mazel tov Yana and Archita. We wish you both lots of love and happiness in life!
