Blending of Traditional Indian Culture



The wedding of Sneha Lokesh and Ajay Pallegar was a grand scale event, given that both their families are prominent members of the local Tampa Bay South Asian community. With a total planning time of nine months, a beautiful celebration joined the lives of a doctor, Sneha and Ajay, an attorney. “Being a modern day Indian woman with strong traditional roots, I was determined to make our special day a refined blend of culture, tradition, elegance, romance and fun,” Sneha said. Traditional elements included Sneha’s mom’s choice of a Wedding Sari from Bangalore India, and white jasmine florals woven into the bride’s hair. The jasmine interwoven into Sneha’s hair is meant to give the bride luck, good fortune and prosperity in her married life.
