Jeweled peacocks and gourmet donuts at this Portland meets India wedding

Following a month-long trip and a traditional wedding in India, Jess and Chintan returned home to Portland, Oregon for a low key, small, and simple wedding with friends that took place on April Fool's Day. The day began with a civil ceremony at Multnomah County Courthouse where the judge was gifted with a custom cake by Dream Cakes. Jessica rocked a custom-made gown, gold Loubotins, and gold sequin Converse for the reception.

After taking a romantic pedicab tour around the city, they returned home to their newly built house with their friends and family for treats from Voodoo Donuts and Poplandia popcorn following a dinner of sweet and savory grilled sandwiches from local food trucks, PBJ’s Grilled and Koi Fusion. It was delicious, gorgeous, and a total fusion of their favorite things.

Be inspired by this multicultural fusion wedding (with a fire engine!)

The bride was living in Istanbul, the groom was in Mexico, her family hails from Scotland, but the wedding was to be held in England. Talk about a lot of Googling and Skyping to get this wedding planned! Good thing they had access to the groom's gorgeous childhood home and backyard to which they could DIY it to high heaven. Just wait until you see the bride's red sari, the Indian-meets-UK catering, and the amazing fire engine!
