KYNAH Bride Talya Vikram found the perfect mix of two cultures in just one sari here at KYNAH. In the Jayne Sari, Tayla illuminated the room in this stunning georgette sari and we couldn't be more in love! The team here at KYNAH wishes the new couple so much love and happiness on their new journey together!
How was your experience with KYNAH?
My experience with Kynah was amazing! Although the sari obviously didn't require much customization, I submitted my measurements for the sizing of the beautiful blouse. Despite the situation in India escalating and inevitable delays, the Kynah team was so communicative throughout the process and reassured me that I would receive the sari and blouse in time. They even exceeded my expectations by getting it to me early! And the blouse fit absolutely perfectly. Couldn't have asked for a better experience !
What was it about the Jayne Sari that made you say “Yes!”?
When I first saw the Jayne Sari it was love at first sight and I knew I had to have it for my ceremony. As my husband and I come from two totally different backgrounds, he has Palestinian and Muslim roots and mine are Indian and Hindu, I wanted to wear something that both embodied my culture while paying homage to the classic and traditional white that women on his side typically wear for their special day. This sari was a perfect combination of the two, so elegant and breathtaking, and honestly let me just say that pictures just cannot do it justice ! The intricate beadwork and sheer design make this the most perfect wedding piece!
If you had to choose one moment from your wedding day, what would it be?
There are a couple of emotional moments that really stand out from my intimate Nikah ceremony. One was having my Dad walk me down the stairs for my grand entrance as a bride. Not typically an overly emotional person, he described to me that he was overcome with bittersweet nostalgia as it finally hit him that he was handing me off to my new life as a wife. He couldn't contain his tears and, of course upon seeing my Mom at the end of our walk, in an equally tearful and sentimental state I completely broke down also. As I finally composed myself and sat down by my almost husband, I noticed he was completely red in the face and was also crying. Overall, was just a beautiful moment to be so emotionally connected to my favorite people, at the beginning of our ceremony.
What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme/aesthetic?
I really wanted to fuse together two cultures and aesthetics for the wedding theme and look, hence me wearing white and a sari. Luckily for me, my in-laws (Mother-in-Law specifically) took care of all of the decorative arrangements. We wanted a classy and polished look, and went for an all white color theme, with green accents. My MIL really delivered and has the most exquisite taste !
What’s one piece of advice you have for other brides/brides-to-be?
My one piece of advice for other brides and brides-to-be would be to fully live in every moment. Be present and find time to soak in the joy and overwhelming love that will surround you in the days leading up to, following and most importantly during your big day or all of your wedding events. Everything will feel surreal and sometimes things become a blur when you're recalling your special day or days, so find those times when you can just fully immerse yourself and experience the celebration with your partner, family and loved ones
