Jenny + Ravi – Indian Wedding Celebration
Part 1 of a two-day celebration began for Jenny and Ravi with a traditional Indian wedding celebration, the first step toward bringing two cultures together. Their journey, which had plenty of roadblocks due to 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 Indian wedding celebration. Upon arrival, the Rangoli, folk art from India, which represents 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, accented with vibrant orange and red flowers.
Both the bride and groom wore custom outfits from India. 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 ceremony.
Candlelight and lush floral arrangements surrounded the couple as they gathered with friends and family to commiserate the traditional rituals of the Indian ceremony. Friends and family joined in the traditions thus continually celebrating this true-love-cultural-breakthrough by showing unity beyond the couple.
After the Indian wedding celebration, guests were treated to a dinner reception which 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 chiavari 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.
