After creating a spunky Mehndi and a romantic ceremony, it only seems fitting that Pallavi and Mukul finish off their wedding with this black tie reception.  Going against the grain, the splash of green creates a interesting contrast to the formal layout of the room.  I love what Shirvan Designs came up with!

From bride:

Our favorite detail of the wedding was by far our guestbook. Mukul and I grew up in Pittsburgh together and after going to college lost touch. Our first date was at a Steelers game after a friend told us we should reconnect and our love for football truly brought us back together. Our guest book incorporated our shared interest; we photographed three custom Steelers jerseys, which displayed the date of our wedding, with our last names’ on the back and had it printed on aluminum for all our guests to sign.

Centerpieces and linens were luscious shades of green, with blue and brown accents.  Each centerpiece incorporated elements of water, stone, branches and candles.  Escort cards were fragrant pouches of jasmine flowers, and were presented on a bed of moss.  The wedding cake was decorated with green leaves and vines, with gold accents.  Amber, patterned lighting soften the surroundings, while maintaining a classic and romantic ambiance.  Dinner consisted of Maharashtrian and Telugu cuisine, with offerings including Malvani Shrimp Curry and Lamb Biryani.  After dancing the night away with family and friends, a Steeler's helmet cake was brought out at midnight to celebrate Pallavi's brother's birthday.
