Meera and Hayden, college sweethearts, got to have the best of both world’s at their marriage. First, the couple celebrated a traditional Hindu ceremony before changing into a classic “James Bond” inspired reception. We love seeing two cultures come together to make one big celebration and this couple blew us away with their Multicultural Bond-Themed Marriage. The day was captured by Julia Kinnunen Photography and both Meera and Hayden got to wear two wedding day outfits. I can’t decide which one I like more, Meera’s deep red dress for the ceremony or her sparkly mermaid gown for the reception. And Hayden looked pretty dapper himself in his sharp black tux and bow tie!
