This October Lisa Ray, actress, philanthropist and social activist married her long time partner Jason Dehlvi in a non-denominational ceremony.
After having a significant career in modeling and film in Bollywood, she became a cross-cultural phenomenon when she broke barriers and took on controversial social issue oriented films.
Diagnosed with Multiple Melanoma in 2009, fans got to experience her battle with cancer as she wrote a Blog, “The Yellow Diaries” And after a successful stem cell transplant, Lisa went into remission in 2010 and has been cancer free ever since!
Let’s take a look at a few select shots from her gorgeous Napa Valley Wedding as posted by The Business of Cinema:
That is the picture of a very excited, and rightly so, Shahzadi! And why would she not be!? She’s the princess of the day!
taking turns speaking vows written for each other… <3 perfection.
Even though it was non-denominational, the couple opted to do a garland exchange out of respect for her Bengali father’s wish to maintain this south Asian tradition.
A classy woman and her man, Her dress is just so pretty. I love the simple elegance and how the cut flatters her figure in the most beautiful way! I also LOVE the ivory colour! Not only does she look amazing, so does Jason Dehlvi! Debonair would be the word for him! His tux complete with his pocket square is an excellent complement to Lisa’s dress!
A private moment captured perfectly! <3
Perched in a vineyard, I love the fact that fall has been highlighted through the use burnt orange and maroon and hints of yellow! VERY Elegant!
Lisa looks graceful in a custom Satya Paul blush sari embroidered in silver gold and bronze. I also love the slight ombre that this sari features.
I LOVE her choice of blouse designs. She kept it timeless and classic by opting for sleeves and a covered back design (Note to self: get a blouse made like this ASAP)
Check out her BLING Shahzadis!
Shahzadis, what can I say, Lisa’s wedding oozed of elegance. I think this wedding was a pure reflection of their love and the couple’s personality. I love many aspects of this wedding. First, they married in Napa Valley, where they originally got engaged, which brings their journey full circle. She opted to keep things very simple which says a lot about the kind of Shahzadi she is. I love the sheer sweetness of each photo in the series because it reflects their love very obviously. They opted to respect both cultures by having understated influences rather than picking one culture to adhere their ceremony to. I think this is one of the most beautiful celebrity weddings I have ever seen for the simple fact that their celebrity was completely understated and their love took center stage!
