Anita and Shivan’s exuberant Hindu-Muslim wedding caught our attention the moment we saw it.

The couple, who were introduced to one another by mutual friends in 2013, might not have become a couple at all, had it not been for Anita’s initiative: “The first time we met, we talked, but not much happened. The second time all of the friends got together for dinner and I asked him out on a date,” Anita says. “He politely accepted…and it was all history from there!” A big part of that history was Shivan’s spring 2017 proposal at Hermann Park. As Anita explains, “It is one of my favorite places in the city. Shivan invited my family and friends, because he remembered that I once told him I would want all my loved ones to be there for the moment. He set up the old oak trees with lights, flowers, and pictures of us from dates we had been on, and proposed under a tree. We went from there to brunch, to celebrate with everyone. It was the most perfect proposal.” And while she notes that, “Our biggest hurdle was that my family is all Muslim and Shivan’s family is all Hindu,” she says that, ultimately, “both families accepted each other and we did ceremonies for both religions. It was beautiful to see two different religions coming together and accepting each other as family.” Join us on a colorful, lively, joy-filled journey through this lovely couple’s multi-day celebration, which included fabulous floral design from Raofactor, at a 350-guest bash held at glamorous Hotel ZaZa Museum District. Wishing Anita and Shivan a lifetime of love!
