Jenny + Ravi {Indian Celebration}

Part 1 of a two-day celebration began for Jenny and Ravi as they brought two cultures together.  The journey of roadblocks because of differences in their diversity, one Indian and one Korean, ended with triumph showing the world that love can truly prevail.   I am beyond thrilled to have shared this experience with them. It was an epic experience on so many levels.  

The Hare Krishna Dham was the playground selected for this celebration.  Upon arrival,  the Rangoli, folk art from India, representing good luck welcomed the guests to a space filled with specialty red lighting and decorative patterns on the ceiling. The mandap was designed to be a large square structure covered in beautiful swags of cream and copper fabric, and accented with vibrant orange and red flowers.  With both wearing custom outfits from India, they were surrounded  by candlelight and lush floral arrangements as they gathered with friends and family to commiserate the traditional rituals of the wedding ceremony.  Jenny was adorned with traditional Henna tattooing along with an all white gold and diamond Mangalsutra, the most
revered token of love and respect offered to the bride during the marriage ceremony.  Friends and family joined in the traditions thus continually celebrating this true-love-cultural-breakthrough. 

The dinner reception was a feast of the finest Indian cuisine.  The pasha metallic tablecloth was the perfect foundation for the mercury glass centerpieces with lush arrangements of vibrant colors.  The look was completed with silver chavari chairs with red shantung napkins and sashes.   Room decor accents completed the design with mirror walls and custom window coverings matching the table linen. The evening would not yet be complete without hours of Raas, Garba, and Ice Cream.

Congrats my friends.
