An Eastern Shore Hindu Wedding
This summer, the Combsberry Inn was blessed with plenty of sunny days and luckily they just so happened to fall on each of our glorious wedding days. While each of our Eastern Shore weddings were different, and all equally lovely, Alex and Sindys was the most unique. Sindys family is Hindu, and when the young New York couple blended their two lives together, their beautiful Maryland wedding day incorporated each of their own customs and cultures.
The morning of their wedding was filled with the usual pots of coffee, hair and make up primping, and hustle and bustle. On top of all this, there was a heightened air of excitement, as we all anxiously awaited the arrival of the "white horse". In keeping with Hindu custom, Alex was to ride in to the first ceremony on a white horse followed by a parade of his friends and family. The horse was not just any horse, he was "THE" Hi Hi Silver, yes - of Lone Ranger fame.
The Hindu ceremony was lovely... A gorgeous ceremony on our lawn amongst a sea of saris, with sailboats floating in the cove behind the couple. The ceremony was followed by a Hindu Tea on our grounds - filled with curries and naan, and bright colors of fuschia and orange. Afterwards, the wedding party changed clothes and headed to the City of Oxford for a traditional American church wedding. This was followed by a delectable meal by Gourmet by the Bay, and dancing under a tent on our grounds. It was a long day, a day filled with love and laughter, and a magical one at that!
Below, take a sneak peek at photos of Sindy and Alex big day. Congrats again you two!
