Our Elegant Events Planning and Design team love working with couples to create unique, one-of-a-kind, diverse, multicultural weddings. But Nicole and Danielle’s wedding was next level!

This fabulous blending of South Asian tradition and country chic décor completely reflected this incredible couple as individuals, their life together, and their amazing families.

Fabulous Friday

For the couple and their families, the wedding weekend began Friday night with a rehearsal, a delicious rehearsal dinner with pizza and Mediterranean food, a live band, and some fantastic henna applications.

However, for Nicole’s aunt, the wedding began much earlier, designing much of her attire with design consultations from India via Zoom, usually at midnight.

 

We LOVE First Looks

The morning started with hair and makeup for all of the ladies, getting ready and an incredible first look.

Danielle waited anxiously, knowing her bride-to-be would soon walk up behind her. As Nicole arrived, there was a comment about a Christmas tree.

Making An Entrance

Following their first look and some family photos, the brides-to-be prepared for the beautiful wedding ceremony.

Danielle made her grand entrance with a traditional baraat, riding in on a majestically adorned white horse led by family and friends.  Little did she know that Nicole was off in the distance sneaking a peek.

For her entrance, Nicole was carried in on a golden chair. From her vantage point, she could see everyone gathered. And you could tell how excited she was by the look on her face as her parents escorted her down the aisle to Danielle.

A Country Chic Mandap

The wedding ceremony was held under a beautifully decorated structure. A floral chandelier and soft white fabric hung above the area where guests were to be seated. A smaller structure at the far end of the aisle created an elegant mandap for the traditional wedding ceremony. The space was draped in brilliant teal fabric with fresh flower swags, with a golden table and chairs below.

Wedding programs in the same teal and gold colors shared detailed information about the ceremony with wedding guests.

The wedding ceremony, officiated by Nicole’s aunt, was beautiful and touching. One very special touch was their engagement and wedding rings, created by a close family friend.

Cocktails, Hors d’ oeuvres and Photos

Following the beautiful wedding ceremony, the brides took time for some photos together. At the same time, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour overflowing with passed hors d’oeuvres, and several chef attended stations of delicious South Asian foods.

A Little Bit Country-Chic

While guests enjoyed cocktail hour, the finishing touches were made to the incredible country-chic wedding reception. The reception tent was filled with long wooden farmhouse tables surrounded by wooden French country chairs. Each table was set with an eclectic mix of plants in unique containers, soft fabric table runners, and a unique blend of modern and vintage glassware, china, and flatware.
