An Intercultural Wedding at the Bronx Zoo

Inspired by the groom's Indian roots and rich jewel tones—blue, purple, green, and gold—one couple held an unforgettable outdoor wedding at an iconic New York venue.

Cupid's arrow struck Anna and Akshay on their first date—a date arranged through the online cherub OkCupid.com. "We felt incredibly lucky," the bride says. Nearly three years later, as the couple lounged in New York City's Fort Greene Park, Akshay popped the question. "The funny part was that we had tickets to see King Lear at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in a couple of hours—so we had to go, and that is the least celebratory play ever!" Anna exclaims. "We got to go out for champagne afterward, though."
