Arjun + Naresh // A Union of Two Souls

A Beautiful Fusion: Naresh and Arjun's Same-Sex Indian Wedding in Boston

As a wedding planner, I have had the privilege of helping countless couples create their perfect day. But few weddings have been as memorable and meaningful as the recent four-day celebration of Naresh and Arjun's union. This same-sex Indian wedding was a beautiful testament to the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit. I am honored to share their story with you.

The Journey from New Orleans to Boston

Our team at Mint To Be Events was initially hired to help plan Naresh and Arjun's wedding in New Orleans. However, Hurricane Ida had other plans, forcing the couple to cancel their original celebration. Undeterred, we quickly pivoted and moved the entire event to Boston, ensuring that all the fanfare and every detail would be preserved, despite the tight timeline.


Day 1: Mehendi Function at Home

The festivities began with an intimate mehendi function at the couple's home. The vibrant colors and intricate henna designs were a beautiful symbol of their love, as friends and family gathered to celebrate and support their journey together.






Day 2: Welcome Party and Haldi

For the second night, we organized a chic welcome party in a Boston high-rise, giving guests a taste of the city's skyline and a chance to mingle before the main events. The atmosphere was electric, filled with anticipation for the days ahead.








Day 3: Sangeet at the Lighthouse Ballroom

The third day was a sangeet function at the Lighthouse Ballroom in the Seaport Hotel. The focal point of the evening was the bistro lighting, a key feature from their original New Orleans sangeet. The room was filled with laughter and dancing as friends and family performed and celebrated the couple's love story.




















Even the catering menu was put together in less than 2 days. Kudos to Maya Grill for doing a phenomenal job under the circumstances.




Day 4: The Wedding Ceremony and Reception

The wedding day began with a delightful surprise: DJ Yogz organized a New Orleans-style B-line parade for the baraat, bringing a taste of their original wedding location to Boston. The ceremony that followed was a poignant reminder of the true meaning of marriage, focusing on the union of two souls, transcending gender.



































The cocktail hour and grand dinner reception showcased the couple's personal touch, with their logo beautifully displayed on a dance floor wrap. The room was filled with love, laughter, and joy as Naresh and Arjun celebrated the beginning of their life together.



























A Testament to Love and Resilience

Every detail of Naresh and Arjun's wedding was meticulously planned in less than three days by our very own Tanvi Rana of Mint To Be Events. This incredible feat was only possible due to the unwavering dedication of our team and the love and support of the couple's friends and family. Naresh and Arjun's same-sex Indian wedding in Boston was not only a beautiful celebration of their love but also a testament to the resilience and adaptability of the human spirit. It was an honor for Mint To Be Events to be a part of their journey, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness and love.
