They both wanted a non-traditional wedding- one that blended their different styles and cultures. On their big day, Simon donned a traditional Indian Sherwani, Justin wore his Marine Blues.

Incorporating their family and friends into the celebration was the biggest priority for them.

Looking back on everything today, Justin and Simon- who now live in the U.K.- couldn’t be more pleased with the way the day turned out.    

They say getting to that point comes down to one thing: A willingness to compromise, even when differences threaten to get in the way. But ultimately, they say, any differences turned out to be a good thing.
