A Traditional South Asian Wedding in Laval

  |   By Alexandra Davies

A traditional South Asian ceremony was the only option for Binish and Dinar's two-day wedding. The duo said their segregated "I dos" in Binish's parent's house, and they were united moments later. "He walked into the living room, sat next to me on the couch, and the first thing he said to me was 'hey wifey'--and I just burst into tears," Binish laughs. Despite the 320 guests, the bride admits, "I can honestly say planning it wasn't as hard as I imagined." With a purple theme in mind, the couple created a colourful fete complete with Islamic customs, lavender accents and the full support of loving family members surrounding them every step of the way. "Our wedding reflected what is most important to us: family, friends and making good memories," the newlyweds conclude.
