Priya Siva + Elliot Kim | Apr 6, 2018
Priya and Elliot met while attending medical school at Vanderbilt University and quickly became best friends. They maintained their tight friendship for five years before Elliot approached Priya and surprised her by telling her how he felt about her and she realized she felt the same way. They finally decided to start dating much to the delight of their friends who had been waiting for the two to make it official for years! They knew right away after they started dating that they were meant to be. A couple of years later, Elliot and Priya’s friend, Emily, created a plan to trick Priya into going to one of their usual spots to “pick up something that Emily forgot before the venue closed for the holidays.” When they arrived, Priya was surprised to find that Elliot had reserved the space and was waiting there to propose! They then met up with friends to celebrate before heading home to Charlotte to celebrate Christmas and their new engagement with Priya’s family.
For their wedding, Priya and Elliot planned an entire fusion wedding weekend. They had a traditional Catholic ceremony before moving the party to The Mint Museum Uptown for their festive reception, all captured by Amanda Moss Photography. The modern space was decked out in shades of coral and pink paired with white linens and gold accents that created a clean and elegant look. The couple also incorporated Hindu elements into their day in honor of Priya’s family’s culture. Something Classicprovided a delicious spread of hors d'oeuvres and a fabulous dinner. After the speeches and toasts, Priya changed from her sleek, white gown into a bright pink and floral two-piece that was a nod to her Hindu culture and perfect for dancing!
The newlyweds had so much fun celebrating their union with their friends and family but the fun didn’t stop there. The next day, they had a full Hindu ceremony as well.
Congratulations, Priya and Elliot!
