I’m not desi, but since I absolutely adore South Asian culture I often find myself looking at pictures of fusion weddings. (It makes me feel included, and that’s comforting.)
Jon Armendariz of NewYorkFilmworks shot this beautiful fusion wedding, all the images are snapshots from the wedding video, which you can watch here.
I mainly just wanted to show you this mehndi, but I’ll justify the post with some saree pictures after the break.
I don’t know if she has any prefessional modelling experience (or was she a model? i don’t know). But this is a high-concept, eye-caching setup that not everyone can pull off.
Here’s an interesting classic designer’s handloom saree featured on exclusively.in – an exclusive members-only online portal bringing its members the best in Indian fashion, home decor, and travel. Do check them out. Looking at the light and intricate design, I thought it was Chanderi silk or cotton but I’m not sure – traditional sarees are different ballgame altogether, I rather leave it to the experts.
Oh, I especialy love the Tarun Tahiliani’s bridal lahenga above, it was also featured on their site.

I like the saree – everything is perfect. The color combination of Magenta, Rust And Deep Green is attractive. Resham embroidery is great. There is the right amount of glitz in the saree and then I look at that hideous flower ornamentation on the shoulder and I shudder.
Why did you have to ruin such a balanced saree?
I thought the photo composition was interesting. Way too many colors for my taste but doesn’t look too bad.
