Helen and Deepak hail from Chicago but traveled down to Port Orange, Florida, to get married at The Estate on the Halifax. The twosome intertwined Hindu wedding traditions with Taiwanese influences and owned it — the day included a lot of awesome details, like the fan-turned-wedding program and mismatched red bridesmaids dresses. Twinkle lights lined each corner of the reception hall, and the party moved indoors to enjoy a fruit-heavy dessert table (no cake!), and tons of dancing.

If you don't want this wedding to end, you can also check out their wedding video here. Thanks to Mark Dickinson and videographers You and I Pictures for sending this one our way!

  2. What a sweet couple! I love that there are lots of interesting details but they still kept it simple – it still looks like a down to earth wedding.
