It's a lovely day in L.A. and our happy couple are about to tie the knot, but first, the groom has to make his way in on horseback, courtesy of Enchanted Carriage, for the baraat procession. Check out the vibrant and amazing floral and decor details from this ceremony. The mandap is simple and breathtaking all at once and all of the floral elements are just out-of-this-world. Erin Shimazu Photography really snapped up some beautiful shots from this unforgettable event, and seriously though, how sweet is the final shot of our bride's beautifully mehndied hand (expertly done by Henna Dil Se) in her groom? There's plenty more to see in the gallery, so make sure you check it out.
On the wedding style:
"We began designing our wedding based on two ideas.
1. Vishal wanted to use Chicago Bears (blue & orange) colors because he's from Chicago
2. Eswari's favorite story is Alice in Wonderland so she wanted to incorporate some subtle whimsical hints of this classic storybook
For the wedding ceremony we kept with the Alice in Wonderland theme by doing an outdoor garden ceremony and creating a mandap made of vines and flowers. For the ceremony we went with the traditional orange, magenta, and red colors. We decided we could weave the orange into the evening to meet Vishal's requirements of using blue and orange. We did the reception indoors and used blue dyed orchids and orange tulips to create the blue and orange theme that vishal wanted. To weave in the Alice in Wonderland theme, we created signature cocktails (Aviation aka The Looking Glass & Old Fashioned aka the Oldhatter), Eat Me tags for the Donuts (in lieu of a cake to keep it whimsical), Drink Me tags for the champagne, and a whimsical set up for the escort cards. Each escort card was created out a playing card and then all of the escort cards were inserted into a bed of wheat grass accented with flowers."
