Shreya and Dustin // A Nepalese and Chinese fusion wedding
While our Indian customs are full of customs and traditions, we almost forget that we neighbor geographically another country with as much color and fanfare. It is only fitting that when our gorgeous Nepalese bride, Shreya decided to marry her Chinese fiancé, Dustin, it was going to be a wedding that would go down in history as one amazing wedding. And when Shreya reached out to Mint To Be Events to her plan her wedding, we simply couldn't resist. The thoughts of blending in a tea ceremony, dancing dragons at the baraat, and helping plan Nepalese specific elements to the ceremony were something we looked forward to.
Enjoy Shreya and Dustin's wonderful love story through the lens of our dear friends, Fern and Feather Studios.
