Founded in 1985 by leaders of the Santa Clara Valley Sikh community, the San Jose Gurdwara is the largest gurdwara in North America at 90,000 square feet. The temple is built on a hill with gorgeous views of San Jose and the Silicon Valley.
This iconic landmark is a beautiful backdrop for a Sikh Indian wedding because of the views and the architecture. Below are some sample images from key Sikh wedding moments from the San Jose Gurdwara.
The symmetrical arches and the endless columns create a photographer’s playground for group portraits and couples portraits for the bride and groom.
A large roundabout is perfect for the Baraat, as the groom and his loved ones greet the Bride’s family. There’s room for a horse or a car, the DJ, the Dohl Player and all of your family and friends.
Upon arrival, the Milni ceremony is held right outside of the entrance doors at the San Jose Gurdwara
Smaller ceremonies, like the Milni, can be held outside of the ceremony hall. The main ceremony is indoors in a large room that can accommodate hundreds of wedding guests.
After the ceremony, the Vidaai at the gurdwara happens at the same location as the baraat, as the couples depart and the bride says goodbye to her family in a heartfelt moment.
