When Priya Sambasivan met Ryan Foster through OkCupid, the first meeting lasted 7 hours! The connect was so strong, it seemed like a glove fitting over one’s hand. In Priya’s words,”The date felt like a long, slow exhale of breath I’d been holding for years”.
“We just fit together,” says Ryan. “We had similar values and philosophy of living but enough differences to help each other grow. She laughed at my stupid jokes, and my jaw dropped when I saw how beautiful she was.”
Two years later, the couple was tying the knot at the Hamilton Station Vineyards in North Virginia and it is just amazing how they blended each others culture and tradition within their wedding!
Everything from Priya’s dress to the wedding ceremony to the food was just fabulous as seen in the photos 🙂

The set-up for the ceremony, a fusion between an altar and a mandap!
We love the floral decor leading up to the mandap!

And also,”you may now kiss the bride!”
The buffet included a lavish spread of Indian foods and the globally famous Texas Barbecue! The wedding favours were cutely decorated boxes with Macaroons!
We love how the colour has been coordinated with Priya’s outfit 🙂
It’s the time to party!
The slipper-hooks are adorable!
