Loulu Palms Estate Wedding on Oahu’s North Shore

I love to see how families celebrate their blended cultures and traditions through weddings.  Shaiya and Sachin’s vision to honor elements of their Indian, Pakistani, Hawaiian, and Japanese heritage came together at the beautiful Loulu Palms Estate on the North Shore this past weekend. The ceremony began with a traditional Baraat in which the groom’s family and friends parade to the wedding site where the bride’s family awaits them. When Sachin and his baraati arrived, they were greeted with warm Salaams and Hawaiian leis from Shaiya’s family and friends. The wedding ceremony included Hawaiian, Hindu, and Islamic prayer and reflection, so rich with symbolism that I would need a much bigger blog to explain. What’s more… Shaiya and Sachin great sense of humor and youthful spirit made this wedding such a fun celebration to photograph.  “Wedding coordination by Melissa and her talented staff at Let’s Do This
