This bold, color-driven design combines modernity with tradition. “It’s a beautiful thing to be part of a Hindu wedding where lively traditions meet the symbolic beauty of bright colors and the sweetest smelling flowers,” says Noor Siddiqui of Noor’s Decor & Events, who specializes in cultural events where she often combines the couple’s modern style with elements from their heritage. Minneapolis’ Mosaic was the perfect blank canvas for creating a bountiful celebration.


A great mandap design is not just about pleasing aesthetics but also about the meaning behind putting up a canopy with four pillars that marks the auspiciousness of a fruitful married life.

The mandap, a traditional “sanctum sanctorum” of Hindu rituals, is adorned with vibrant pink roses, anthurium stems and whimsical greenery. This essential structure symbolizes the universe under which a new beginning starts: The bride and groom enter as two single people and exit as a married couple. A statue of Ganesh, adorned in florals and candlelight, keeps away bad luck, blesses the happy couple and smooths their path in the future.

The reception incorporates Western traditions, such as a head table and showstopping wedding cake. Vibrant florals in shades of magenta pop against the gold structure over the table while modern basket lamps add texture. Newlyweds Pika and Paurakh set the scene in the wedding attire they wore at their own ceremony a few weeks prior.
