well, we haven’t talked to our officiant yet, but I was raised Hindu and my Fiance was raised Catholic. He’s not practicing, so we are having a non-denominational ceremony, with aspects of both. Traditional vows (though we will probably write them or having them be a little more modern that the Catholic ones), maybe a unity candle/sand, and either the 7 steps or garland giving part of the Hindu ceremony. We’re not totally sure yet.

My point is that if you’re willing to no get married specifically in either religion, you could probably find a way to blend them. 

Hope this helps.

Would your priest let you get legally married at the Catholic ceremony, and then afterwards have a non-legally-binding Hindu ceremony?  That way you could still do both exactly as you wanted, just swap the order so that the Catholic one still "counts" to the priest?
