Shelley and Nishant: A Multicultural American and Indian Wedding in Durham

It’s s so exciting to do a wedding that blends two cultures together! Shelley and Nishant’s American and Indian wedding day was long but wonderful. The festivities began with a  traditional American service at Duke Chapel, followed by an Indian luncheon at the JB Duke Hotel, followed by the Barat (parade) at the hotel entrance, followed by a Hindu ceremony inside, and then to top it off a traditional American evening reception at the Washington Duke Inn!

I hope you enjoy the images of this traditional and classic meets multicultural and fun wedding from Scobey Photography!
