Sanjay Gupta and Rebecca Sue Olson Wedding: Where did it take place?
The couple exchanged their vows on May 15, 2004. Their renowned ritual wedding was held at The Shell House at Ashley Hall in Charleston, South Carolina. Rebecca told Charleston publication, “Ever since I first visited Charleston, I thought it would be a perfect place for a wedding,” and fortunately, it also happened as per her wish.
Gupta, whose parents immigrated from Northern India to the United States in the mid-sixties also “wanted a Hindu wedding,” Olson said to InStyle.
The Atlanta-based couple decided to walk down the aisle on a traditional Indian wedding in the honor of Sanjay’s rich heritage and culture. The lavish Hindu wedding was managed by Tara Guérard of Soirée, a full-service event planning company.
Talking more about their special day, Gupta arrived at Baraat, a groom’s wedding procession in India, in which a groom travels on a mare to the bride’s home or their scheduled-wedding venue. The huge moment marked by dancing and music.
Just forty-five minutes after Gupta’s arrival, Olson came on a chair which was carried by her brothers. She was looking beautiful in a hand-beaded silk Lengha and a choli, or long scarf.
One of the major functions in a Hindu wedding is (Mangal Pheras), in which both bride and groom circled a holy fire four times. There is a saying that the person who sits down first will rule the marriage. “Rebecca won that one,” Gupta said.

“I wrote her a poem and in the last line asked her to marry me”.
“Watching her read it, I was very nervous-it was over a page long.”

“He was down on one knee and asking me to marry him before I even got to the end!”
