We are thrilled to feature a styled shoot full of gorgeous florals, ruffles, ribbons and a pop of color. Aura Marzouk Photography, Infinite Bliss Events, plus a team of super creative vendors from North Carolina collaborated to create a romantic + whimsical Indian bridal photo shoot. I absolutely adore how Beauty By Bryn Makeup Artistry, and Avanti Salon And Spa made the models look like they just stepped out of a dreamy Bollywood movie.The model’s hair, swept to the side, falls into long rolling curls and looks stunning. The winged eye liner definitely adds the glamor factor! The delicate mehendi pattern by Monique Delatour Henna Design is very elegant, and complements the model’s complete ensemble.

The pink, purple, and turquoise decor by Designs North Florist, and the outdoors lounge seating set up by Happy Rentz would make for a perfect engagement party, mehendi, sangeet or an intimate wedding reception. The wedding cake by Tania’s Mixing Bowl Bakery stands out with its lovely details and bright colors. One of my favorite photos of this styled shoot are those of the stunning stationary by Bridal Flavors. I can’t stop admiring the escort cards, menus, and table numbers, and how the designer has added oomph to the wedding stationary by using crystals (each of which have to be applied by hand!).

Absolutely love how this talented team of vendors put together this beautiful photo shoot. A big thank you to Aura Marzouk Photography for sharing with us!

Beauty, blooms, and butterflies galore, this picturesque decor would make for an enchanting fairy tale wedding. Today we are featuring a wonderful styled shoot, the essence of which has been captured perfectly by StoryMotion Studios.

For this styled shoot Da Vinci’s Florist created a dreamy and fairy tale like ambiance with exotic blooms, orchids, and hydrangea covered trees. With live fluttering butterflies and ethereal fog, it feels like you are entering an enchanted forest. All that is needed to complete this fairy tale is a prince and a princess.

This week we are featuring a beautiful Sindhi – South Indian fusion wedding of Radhika and Vikas photographed by Shreya Sen Photography. Yesterday we featured their Mehndi and Sangeet. Today we are showcasing their wedding ceremony.

Radhika and Vikas got married in a traditional South Indian wedding ceremony. Radhika is picture perfect in her ivory silk sari which she pairs with temple and gold jewelry. Her eyes are highlighted with a black liner and a subtle eyeshadow. Love her mehndi, which is now a beautiful color, and her gorgeous bangles and bracelets. The decor consisted of beautiful South Indian jasmine flowers, and looks heavenly.  We could not be happier for the lovely couple. Love, traditions, family,  and new beginnings : These are the Memorable Marigold Moments!

This week we are featuring a beautiful Sindhi – South Indian fusion wedding of Radhika and Vikas photographed by Shreya Sen Photography. We are kicking this off with their Mehndi and Sangeet Ceremony.

The beautiful Mehndi and Sangeet of Radhika and Vikas infused the traditions from North and South India. Radhika looks gorgeous in a brocade purple lengha, which is shorter in length, and is paired with a bright red choli and a gorgeous yellow dupatta. The outfit was designed by Sister of the bride, Aarti, herself. Loving the bride’s gorgeous mehndi, and all the pretty colors and props used at this event.

Now you all know how much I love Marigolds. I feel it totally sums up the essence of Indian weddings, which are all about traditions, families, fun, and gorgeous colors. When I saw Radhika and Vikas’s Mehndi/ Sangeet photos, it was not a surprise, that I totally fell in love with their gorgeous Marigold decor, and how the families came together in a super fun celebration for the lovely couple. Got to love these Memorable Marigold Moments!

Stay tuned – we will be back tomorrow with their beautiful South Indian wedding ceremony!

After a gorgeous wedding ceremony on a beautiful summer day, Smita changed into a stunning lime green lengha. The skirt of her lengha reminds me of ever so beautiful peacock feathers. I absolutely love her kundan choker paired with the lovely “kaan chain” earrings, and just can’t get my eyes off that gorgeous ring! She completes her chic look by playing up her eyes with a gorgeous green shadow and touching up her lips with a natural gloss. I absolutely adore how the soft curls frame her face.

With the spectacular venue as their backdrop, the couple’s shots are breathtaking. I adore how the couple is lovingly gazing in each others’ eyes in all the pictures.

The fuchsia, apple green, and white decor (with gold accents) at Smita and Sandeep’s reception is fabulous! Love the tall centerpieces with gorgeous roses, hydrangeas, and greens, accented with crystal hangings. The  gold overlays look beautiful and the candles create sets the mood for the evening. The cake is decorated with green fondant roses and looks lovely. The attention to detail at this wedding amazes me. How beautiful are the guest place cards?! With calligraphy handwriting, I simply adore how the gold and magenta sari borders were used to embellish each place card.

Hope you enjoy the beautiful pictures from Smita and Sandeep’s wedding reception by True Photography Weddings.
