Happy Monday, everyone!! I’m back with part two of Vipula and Dan’s fabulous and over-the-top gorgeous wedding… and you are in for some SERIOUS eye candy!
Let’s pick up post-cocktail hour and move straight into the reception, where guests encountered bright fabric tenting, colorful lanterns with clutches of orchids, exotic feathers and flowers grouped into eclectic vessels, a sultry custom-built ‘destination’ bar and of course… an incredible chai & dessert tent, with cabinets overflowing with sweet treats and cozy settees and cushions for snuggling up with a warm cup of tea.
some dining tables were wooden tables topped with intricately beaded runners…
while other tables were draped in sumptuously colored fabrics
the “napkin rings” were tri-fold menus that had three sections listed: drink, eat, sweets! guests could review the signature cocktails available at the bar, read about the decadent dishes they’d feast upon during the traditional Indian dinner, and whet their appetite for a selection of sweets.
i spy… custom-designed stationery (by love and splendor) and elephants galore…
lounges surrounded the dancefloor
sweet and saucy provided the magnificent cake and always-mouth-watering desserts 🙂
table for two…
i can’t get enough of these over-the-top florals!! r. jack balthazar ALWAYS brings the magic.
and the most stunning bar you’ve ever seen…
…turned on the drama when the sun set
grand entrance & first dance
i love these two a lot.
and as the sun set, the colorful scene seamlessly evolved into a jaw-droppingly sultry celebration with the perfect mood lighting for dining & dancing!
I hope you loved soaking up all the details of this wedding as much as I enjoyed dreaming them up and now reliving them through these amazing images. 🙂 Another round of applause and deepest thanks to a team made up of some of my very favorite people…
