Anjali and Galen’s Indian and Western Fusion Wedding in Utah by Kate Olson Photo

Happy Friday everyone, and how are you all? If you are living in the north then I’m guessing you may be moving into Tier 3 today or tomorrow. Here in South Yorkshire we are moving from 2 – 3 tomorrow. So today, as his school has broken up a day early, I am escaping South Yorkshire for a day out with Dexter before we aren’t allowed to any more! Then we have the rest of the half term to look forward to. We are out for the on Saturday and then we have a host of Halloween events and trips out planned for the rest of the week. We may be in Lockdown but I’m not going to let that ruin our fun! So on with today’s wedding and I have this gorgeous Indian and Western fusion wedding of Anjali and Galen who were married on 4th August at The Lodge at Blue Sky in Coalville, Utah. The wedding was submitted by Hoopes Events and captured by Kathryn Bruns Photography The whole day is glorious, full of gorgeous colour, amazing outfits and a rather fancy entrance from the groom in a helicopter instead of the traditional horse!

Anjali and Galen celebrated their beautiful day at Blue Sky Ranch, located in Wanship, Utah. Their ceremony and reception were a fusion of Indian and Western wedding traditions. The festivities started with a unique groom’s entrance. In the Indian culture it is traditional for the groom to ride in on a white horse. However, Galen chose to fly in on a helicopter! Quite the grand entrance. Guests were able to see him land in the field before driving up to the ceremony at The Arena. Guests were encouraged to wear traditional Indian garb which includes bright, vibrant sarees and long-sleeved tunics. They arrived at a stunning outside ceremony space on the terrace. An elegant draped Mandap stood at the end of the banana leaf lined aisle. After a lovely ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the terrace and were invited into the Arena for the reception. Inside the Arena, the ceilings were draped with fabrics in different shades of green, to create a flowing canopy. The white farm wood tables were covered by fresh greenery runners, with gold votives sprinkled throughout. Guests enjoyed an evening of traditional Indian foods, music from the popular band, Changing Lanes, and a night full of dancing and fun.
