We have had a bright and colorful week of weddings, and today’s reception will definitely not disappoint.  It is filled with tons of goodies and fun little surprises. I know that I am going to sound a bit like a wedding craher today, but that is because I am a little obsessed with this wedding. My excitement starts with the modern color palette. I love how the traditional wedding maroon is updated with turquoise for a bold, vibrant look. And, when I say that this color palette was everywhere, it was EVERYWHERE.  From the bridesmaid’s reception saris, to the matching champagne glasses, to the dessert station.  There wasn’t any detail left to chance.

When we choose the members of the Platinum Guide, we screen them to make sure that not only are they great at their jobs, but they bring true passion into their work.  So, it came as no surprise that Barka and Arul’s wedding was running ahead of schedule, there was plenty of time for pictures, and the bride was happy and relaxed.  That is what I have come to expect when Pink Rock Events is in charge.

From Pinaki at Pink Rock Events : What I loved about this wedding was everything was done with style, but in a different way.  Instead of a typical buffet style Indian meal, dinner was plated and served to the guys.  Dancing is a big part of this couple’s life.  Instead of a typical slow dance, the couple did a cute bollywood dance.  The bride’s sister and brother also performed bollywood numbers that were a hit.  Another big part of this wedding was dessert.  We turned the escort table into a dessert station by night, and we set up an ice cream station with tons of different toppings.  It was a huge hit!

Okay, so let’s talk about this lengha of Barka’s, specifically her blouse.  Across the wedding market sleeves are IN big time this year ever since Ivanka Trump wore Vera Wang’s lastest sleeve-d creation. So, I guess this makes Barka kind of ahead of the fashion curve. This is exactly what we mean when we say, if you let your personality come through on your big day, it is sure to be a hit! 

What style blouse are YOU choosing for your big day?

Congrats to the beautiful couple and kisses to Andrena Photography and Pink Rock Events for submitting this wedding to us.
