Leena + Joseph | Jul 30, 2016
Leena and Joseph, both first generation Americans, grew up together, with Leena and Joseph’s sister as best friends. As the story goes, Leena had a huge crush on Joseph who paid no attention to her. Fast forward a few years and the couple started dating before Joseph decided to pop the question in Romare Bearden Park.
On July 30, the couple said “I do” in a Catholic Indian wedding. The two planned a Bollywood inspired Charlotte wedding, complete with a traditional coconut exchange ceremony. The Charlotte wedding reception was held at CenterStage@Noda. The bride had an outfit change and two separate entrances to show them off. Instead of a traditional sweetheart table or head table, the couple opted for a gorgeous lounge area.
They infused a nod to their Indian culture in the reception cuisine. The night was complete with a fun dance battle and glow sticks on the dance floor.
Congratulations the newlyweds!
