Lisa Ray- Jason Dehni Marriage
This event is scheduled to be held on October 20th 2012 in Napa Valley, California, USA. It is expected to be a marriage ceremony with a combination of Indian and Western rituals/traditions. According to sources, this date has been chosen because of its auspiciousness, as it marks the beginning of Durga Puja in India.
Lisa Ray and Jason Dehni have hired local wedding planner Sarah Gazzagh to organize their wedding. She will be in charge of wedding catering, floral arrangements, entertainment acts, and venue decoration for all the pre and post marriage events. The wedding menu will be prepared by Chef Bruce Riezenmen, who is renowned for his lip-smacking delicacies. It will include Indian dishes, Lebanese dishes and International dishes, all prepared with fresh, locally available ingredients.
Lisa Ray’s wedding dress will be designed by Wendell Rodricks. According to sources, the wedding dress will be simple and comfortable, with a few sparkling embellishments. Lisa was specific about what she didn’t want in a wedding dress, namely, frills and bows. She also said she wanted a dress that she could easily dance in.
Previously, Wendell Rodricks had designed a beautiful white gown for Lisa Ray, which she had worn for the red carpet premiere of ‘Water’ at the Toronto Film Festival in 2005. This dress had fetched her the title of ‘Best Dressed Female Star’, along with Hollywood star Johnny Depp (who was voted as Best Dressed Male Star). So, it’s no wonder that she has chosen Wendell Rodricks to design her wedding dress.
After their wedding reception, Lisa Ray and Jason Dehni are expected to fly off to Bora Bora for their honeymoon.
