Jenny + Ravi – Wedding Ceremony
Jenny + Ravi’s wedding ceremony tells a story. Their story. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
There was once a boy who met a girl. They were from completely different worlds; different family beliefs, different traditions, different gods; just completely different. But, they liked each other, a lot. They quickly fell in love even though all odds were against them. But, no diversity could break their destiny or their love. The love they had for each other. It would speak. It would whisper. Eventually people understood what Ravi + Jenny already knew. This guy loved this girl and this girl loved this guy. It was to be; their bond. Then, they got married.
They had a vision of a wedding ceremony from a little movie called Twilight. Not regarding hungry wolves and lustful vampires, but rather a breathtaking masterpiece of suspended floral in soft white, surrounded by trees. What could be better than hundred year old manzanita trees and oak trees as your playground?. With whimsical invitations of purple hues blended with grey, Ravi + Jenny selected the River Oaks Garden Club as the setting for their wedding ceremony, Part II of their wedding adventure. Check out Part I, which was a celebration to Ravi’s Indian heritage, filled with vibrantly beautiful colors of red and orange.
There was also something spectacular about the meaning of flowers. While the groomsmen showcased a dark purple dendrobium orchid with lavender accents on their JoS. A. Bank suits, the bridesmaids each presented a different floral bouquet to Ravi as they approached the altar. While “Clair de Lune” by Debussy filled the air, the meaning of each flower was spoken: White Stock, representing a symbol of happy life and contented existence; Gardenia, representing feminine grace, purity, and joy; Orchid, a flower of magnificence that brings universal message of love, beauty, thoughtfulness, luxury, and strength; and, Chrysanthemum, representing hope. The final bouquet presented by Jenny was the White Rose, the flower of light, which stands for the mortal power of love. Rosemary and Lavender were accents with their meanings of remembrance and renewal respectively. Together, Ravi and Jenny tied the bouquet together symbolizing the unity of their cultures and the foundation of their relationship.
Stay tuned for Part III of this epic adventure.
