The word Sangeet translates to 'sung together' from Sanskrit. 'Gaun', another word used to describe the event, means 'songs' or 'to sing' in Hindi. Traditionally celebrated in the Punjab regions of India, this ceremony has been adopted by many other regions as a form of celebration for the wedding to come.
Shivana knew she wanted to incorporate her heritage into her wedding. She and JJ decided to host a Sangeet Celebration and boy was it fun! The guests were asked to come dressed for the occasion, and they 100% participated. Shivana, JJ, and the bridal party started their journey at the hotel and paraded down the street to the venue. We had the photography and videography team there to document the processional. Then, they arrived in style! We had all the guests in the entry way waiting to cheer on the bride and groom...and it didn't stop there. The party started off with cheering and celebration, followed by special choreographed Bollywood style dancing, dinner, and MORE DANCING! Guests are still telling Shivana and JJ how much fun this event was!!!
