Pooja and Shashank had the most gorgeous cross-cultural Indian wedding and we are super impressed. Two MBA graduates from two contrasting cities and cultures of India, who met in the habibi land, Dubai. Really, if you aren’t already thinking about “Two States”, then you don’t exactly qualify as a Bollywood fan.

The Punjabi-Marwari couple always wanted to have a quintessential big fat Indian wedding, so they most definitely had one and their cultural differences made it all the more extravagant as they went ahead to have not just one but two weddings. It was a mad and epic never ending string of parties which lasted until early wee hours.

So clearly the wedding was just as dreamy and fun as it sounds and the pictures from their wedding are absolutely mesmerizing and 100% pin-worthy.

Scroll away to check out some amazing pictures from this cross-cultural Indian wedding that we are gushing over big time – 

1. The Dhamakedaar Wedding Festivities

The couple left no stones unturned in making their pre-wedding festivities and reception just as fun and every bit special as their extravagant weddings. Everybody knew a little about the opposite side’s marriage customs through movies and TV shows but experiencing it all in reality was more surreal than anything.

The couple and their family had a fun series of events to celebrate both their cultures & backgrounds as they thoroughly felt connected with the cheery vibes and these pictures precisely narrate their zealous energy and excitement.
