Becky & Nilay: A Boldly Beautiful Affair

Becky and Nilay’s two — you heard us right, two! — magnificent celebrations were infused with touches of contemporary glamour and cultural beauty, making for a truly magical day that was just as vibrant and joyous as this amazing couple that met while they lived next to one another in a dorm at their alma mater, the University of Chicago.

While it may have taken Becky and Nilay eight years following their first encounter to begin dating, they could no longer deny their love for one another and have been inseparable ever since.

The former dorm neighbors became engaged and wanted a wedding day that was a perfect representation of their multi-cultural backgrounds. The day began with a beautiful Hindu ceremony in the ornate ballroom of the JW Marriott. Becky walked down a flower-petal-lined aisle in a dazzling gold and red sari while surrounded by oodles of bold-hued flowers. Following their first ceremony, the couple said their ‘I Do’s’ in an evening Christian ceremony that took place at the uniquely modern Bridgeport Art Center.

Guests then headed to the ultra modern and chic Skyline Loft at the Bridgeport Art Center for the couple’s reception. From sequin-adorned table cloths and accessories to lush pink floral centerpieces to a 60′ projector screening the couple’s favorite videos and songs, this reception was filled with bold hints of glamour, modernity and pure bliss.

Congratulations, Becky and Nilay!
