Inspired by the lights of Diwali, Max and Sujata created an intimate wedding that felt warm, natural and romantic. Surrounded by greenery, beneath a canopy of stars, and in front of a backdrop of light, they said their vows before close friends and family members.

The couple began the evening with a first look, where they read each other private letters and took stunning photos around the grounds. The guests took their seats amidst a candlelight aisle, while a live stream began to include Sujata's family from India. A string quartet was playing as the the couple walked down the aisle hand in hand. Max's parents helped them tie the knot with a handfasting, and his nieces handed them rings from handmade wooden ring boxes. Vows were exchanged in two different languages, and the ceremony was concluded with a sweet kiss on the cheek.

To keep both families included across two different continents, the live stream was kept going for the next portion of the evening- a fun and spicy choreographed first dance. Following a bit of dancing for everyone, Max, Sujata, and their guests enjoyed light appetizers for a quick thanks in the adjoining cafe. Sujata stayed in her green dress, guests mixed and mingled freely over a mix of Indian and American apps, and light music played over the speakers. It was a lovely evening filled with romance, light, and ease.
