Throwback Thursday | Indian Weddings

Multi-cultural celebrations, Indian weddings

 

Indian Weddings! Oh how we love them. These multi-day celebrations are rich in color and filled with exquisite decor, intricate henna designs, lavish Indian wedding garb and lots of yummy food.  This throwback Thursday image is from on of our very first Indian Weddings we planned and designed 8 yrs ago at Trentadue Winery in Geyserville, CA.

 

While I admit that we were a bit inexperienced at the time when it came to Indian weddings, we worked a total of 14 + hours on the day of in 103 degree weather to execute this grand affair. It definitely prepared us for future Indian weddings, and now we can proudly say we have planned + designed a myriad of multi-cultural weddings and are very knowledgeable in Sikh and Hindu traditions.

 

Let us help you plan your Indian wedding!

Throwback Thursday | Rustic Charm Styled Shoot

Lovely floral arrangement for our Rustic Charm Styled Shoot

 

This Rustic Charm Styled Shoot was designed a few years back for Today’s Bride SF Magazine. Before rustic weddings became a trend, we were dreaming of soft and pretty flowers, such as peonies and ranunculus beautifully arranged in a wooden container for this particular shoot.

 

The challenge was to create two versions of this table, one lovely and one lavish. Our lovely table consisted of sweet and simple details that would be relatively cost effective to implement into your wedding design, while our lavish display was just that, lavish, for those couples willing to splurge a bit. The image above is of our lovely table, and we still LOVE it after all of these years.

 

While most of the rustic weddings you see now in days contain decor that has been overly used, such as the infamous mason jar, something about sweet fresh florals in shades of orange, green and white paired with wooden elements never goes out of style.

Unique Ballroom Ideas

this tropical wedding provides unique ballroom ideas

 

Looking for unique ballroom ideas? A tropical setting within a ballroom = totally doable. This was a wedding we designed a few years back paying homage to the groom’s Puerto Rican roots. By infusing a hint of island flair, we created a tropical, yet sophisticated and elegant wedding for our lovely couple. Floral design: Asiel Design, rentals: Classic Party Rentals, venue: The Regency Ballroom and Photographer: Weddings by Sasha.
