I feel like I'm in a fairy tale! This exquisite ceremony captured by Marcel & Meher Photography is a picturesque scene with a whimsical mandap-inspired stage created by vines and roses. The whole vibe happening here is simply too sweet; from the garden venue to the rustically romantic front gate (how adorable is their sign!?), everything is just dream-come-true dazzling. Our bride is a total stunner with henna by Mehndi Designer and a brilliant ruby sari, while Raja Bryan is a dashing Prince Charming in a cool champagne-colored sherwani. This duo is as elegant as it gets! I have to take a moment to smell all the flowers and soak up the beauty in the gallery!
From the bride: "Going into the planning process, Bryan and I knew we had a challenge ahead—we wanted something rustic and casual, while still incorporating the Indian traditions that were most important to me and my family. (There is nothing rustic or casual about a typical Indian wedding).
After initially thinking we would have the wedding in Houston (where I grew up and where my parents live), we decided on a whim to check out Barndiva. We knew about the place already—it was just 10 minutes from where Bryan grew up in Sonoma County and we knew that they emphasized local food and wine, which is just our style. But when we saw the space, we knew instantly that it was what we wanted. The outdoor garden where the ceremony would be held was simple and beautiful. The gallery had an artsy feel that you don't typically get with wedding spaces. And the dinner area was breathtaking—long tables under an arch of lights. It had the things we loved about rustic wine country weddings without being hokey or over the top."
Love it! Up next we get a sneak peek into the reception venue. You will adore it!
