Akshay and Nithya’s DIY sangeet ceremony is what we are crushing on. They bumped into each other in the Bay Area at a Tamil movie and eventually started talking. While she was reluctant in the beginning owing to other priorities, the familiarity was very compelling and eventually agreed to date. They started dating in the middle of 2018, bonding over movies, long drives and our love for travel and here they are today about to get married.
So, Akshay and Nithya’s wedding is to take place on 1st December and since all of their US friends cannot travel to Chennai. They decided to host a California sangeet ceremony in the middle of October in their backyard, so that they get the chance to celebrate with their friends before they jet to India.

They wanted the decor to be full of color, embracing the vibrance of Mehendi and Sangeet occasions in India. Taking inspiration from Pinterest and YouTube, the couple ordered all decoration pieces from Amazon, ranging from lights and colored paper lanterns, to paper fans and colored drapes. They also set up a DIY stage using four light poles, strung with lights and paper lanterns that were illuminated with stage lights rented out from a local theater staging company.
