"The mandap is the most well-known element of Hindu weddings," says Preeti Moberg, founder of The Big Fat Indian Wedding. "It's a four-pillared canopy structure where the wedding and all rituals take place." For this wedding, Vivah Decoration in Fremont, California, adorned a large silver mandap with a garland of ombre pink roses.
