In the New England area, BSL dominates the Bengali wedding space. While most DJs think that all North Indian weddings are alike, to know the subtle differences is what makes us different. From the bride walking into her ceremony with paan leaves covering her eyes (as opposed to the groom blocking his view of the bride), to her circling the groom as her initial greeting, we know all the customs. Check out some of the Bengali weddings we have done below:
Bengali Mein Kehte Hain "I Love You"
Sharada and Billy's two day celebration was one fusion throw down were are so excited to be part of. Billy and his family welcomed traditional Bengali traditions, and engaged in all the activities with a ton of enthusiasm. The first day of celebrations included an American officiant led ceremony, and a reception that didn't feature a single Indian song. For the second day, we shut down the historic Memorial Drive for the baraat and infused the reception with a blend of everything you can think of. Check out Billy and Sharada's wedding in the video above. Pictures below from Dyuti Majumdar from Arts and Memories.

Shrey & Akshay
Shreyashree (Shrey) knew that from all of her Bengali friends and cousins weddings, that BSL was an obvious choice for her wedding fiesta to Akshay! We featured our awesome BSL Tuk Tuk for the vidaii, as well as rocked the reception like only we know how to. Check out these awesome photos below from David Tucker Photography!

Raj and Melissa
When two scientists from MIT fall in love, you know they will want to party it up in style, with dinosaurs of course at Boston's Museum of Science. Meet Raj, a Bengali, and Melissa, a non-Indian take the plunge together (well sorta, as the baraat started on a duck boat) at this gorgeous venue. The ceremony was held outside, where aunties greeted the groom by playing the conch shell in full Bengali tradition. The reception was in the main gallery of the museum. The event was planned by BSL's former rendition of planning services, Pink Lotus Events, and taken by our-then business partner, Binita Patel Photography. Check out the highlight and photos from Binita.
Jhilam and Danny
Check out Jhilam and Danny's beautiful Jewish and Bengali wedding at the Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts. It's only fitting that this couple chose this amazing venue, as the bride herself is a singer. Danny's didn't let down either as he showed off his amazing dancing skills in a choreographed dance. This wedding was featured in the Boston Magazine and the Jewish Journal. Check out the amazing photos from our friend David Tucker on this one.
