A Modern and Colorful Indian Wedding at The Museum of Contemporary Art

Kathy and Rohan’s colorful Indian wedding at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.

Instead of attempting to replicate the traditional weddings they had witnessed as children or experienced through old photographs, Kathy and Rohan weaved together pieces that each personally revered and valued to create a unique and comfortable experience.  They wanted to tie together the exuberant chaos and color inherent to Indian weddings with the clean lines of modern spaces they both love so much. The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago quickly became an obvious venue choice.

The couple was even sentimental in their clothing choices.  Rohan’s chose an Indian take on a tuxedo jacket that was adorned with a floral print from his father’s home state of Rajasthan. Kathy wore a gold saree adorned with traditional floral motifs and golden coins that reminded her of the glamour of the 1920’s.

Rohan’s baraat was easily one of the event highlights. Atop a white horse named Dusty, the groom was led by colorfully dressed friends and family to his bride.  The streets of downtown Chicago blasted with bhangra music, laughter, and dancing. A perfect processional into the amazingly colorful (and fruit-filled) traditional Hindu ceremony that the couple decided upon.  It was magic.
