Laura and Rahul’s Hindu-Jewish wedding at the Phoenix Art Museum had a beautiful mix of modern and traditional elements. One of the traditional Hindu wedding ceremony rituals they celebrated was Saptapadi, Sanskrit for seven steps/feet, where the bride and groom circle the holy fire seven times. With each circle, the bride and groom make a vow specific to creating a happy life and household together.
This was a beautiful moment captured by Laura Segall, in between taking formal posed photos.
Personalized blanket favors adorned the ceremony chairs for guests to snuggle up at the outdoor evening January wedding.

Instead of having a traditional wedding party, the couple selected their closest friends to participate in their ceremony by carrying a glass bubble holding a votive candle to hang on the mandap demonstrating their support of the marriage. One of the most beautiful ceremonies I’ve seen. Their mandap was spectacular, dripping with orchids and sparkling with candlelight.
The artwork behind the head table stole my heart as I am addicted to orange.
Mr. and Mrs. celebrate with the traditional Jewish Hora Dance!
Laura & Rahul were an absolute pleasure to work with, beautiful people inside and out. It was an honor to help them create their dream wedding celebration in Arizona. Cheers to Laura & Rahul!
