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!

The Spring 2013 fashion color palette is inspired by “The Balancing Act”, where it focuses on individuality, self-expression, and excitement, while emphasizing the need for balance. Some of the top designers in the industry have revealed their inspiration, colors, and must have items for Spring 2013.

We were thrilled to see three South Asian designers in the Pantone Spring 2013 Fashion Color Report. Rachel Roy and Bibhu Mohapatra featured Tender Shoots in their designer outlook, while Sachin + Babi are excited and inspired by Poppy Red.

We have compiled some inspiration boards using this year’s fashion color pallette.
