Multicultural weddings are always some of the most fun! Watching two families come together and learn about each other's customs and culture is so heart warming.
One of our favorite wedding venues of all time is Hawkesdene Estate located in beautiful Andrews, North Carolina. Hawkesdene is a true estate, with cottages and housing to host all of your wedding guests. The meticulously maintained grounds and amazing natural surroundings make it the perfect destination wedding locale. In addition to the natural beauty, the staff are truly amazing and their culinary team always knocks it out of the park! Our favorite things about Hawkesdene are the Llama's that reside next to the main house, which always provide fun photo ops for weddings.
One of our favorite Hawkesdene weddings was the two day extravaganza celebrating Eric and Sofia! A truly multicultural affair, the couple hosted a traditional Indian style wedding the first day, and then had an American style wedding the following day. This arrangement allowed for the both cultures to be honored and celebrated and we were honored to be a part of the festivities! Friday's Indian wedding featured some of the most gorgeous wedding attire we have ever seen. The playlist of Bollywood and Bhangra boogie tunes was infectious and got everyone on the floor!
Saturday's American style celebration included traditional guilty pleasure wedding favorites with an ample amount of sing a longs and 90's hits thrown in. Both sides of the family came together and danced the night away and no one wanted the wedding to end after the two epic nights of dancing. Truly one of our favorite weddings of all time!
