Ganesha at Indian weddings

Ganesh at our Indian wedding at the Cotton Dock

Ganesh is the god of new beginnings and he is likely to great you at any Hindu ceremony. This golden god greeted all our guests out at the beautiful Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation this past August. Each of his body parts hold a different meaning. The direction of his trunk is significant; pointed to the left is symbolic of going in the direction of success while the right signifies renouncing the world. Don't judge him for his large tummy; it allows him to peacefully digest all of what is good and bad in life. The bright colors, rich food, and jovial dancing already make these events amazing; all the beautiful traditions such as Ganesh are just the icing on the cake. We won't lie, being an elephant definitely helped. To see more of this beautiful Indian Hindu Wedding Weekend check out Shilpa and Yatin in our portfolio.
