The moment has come for Umang and Joe to say their I do's in a Hindu ceremony at the Cox Business Center, in Tulsa, Oklahoma! Our Maharani wanted the wedding colors to represent a fusion of both the couple's cultures, so she chose off-white to symbolize Joe's Irish/Episcopalian heritage, and a deep red wine shade to show off her Hindu/Punjabi roots. To execute her exact vision, the awesome duo of wedding planner—K.I. Weddings and floral and decor specialist—Prashe Wedding Decor, joined forces to make their wedding dream come true! Heather Roth Fine Art Photography takes stunning pictures of the elegant mandap, along with the cascading fuchsia and purple floral arrangements. The setting is wildly romantic, and our adorable lovebirds look tickled pink to be man and wife! To see their Christian nuptials, take a detour with me to the gallery!
From the bride, on the wedding planner:
"None of this would have been possible without the incredible talent at K.I. Weddings. They really truly took my dream and made it a reality. They took the time to understand who I was and where I was coming from. I didn't want just a cookie cutter wedding, I wanted something truly unique but still intimate. They worked tirelessly to help that dream come true- so many times I would get text messages from them with cool ideas I hadn't even thought of. I only interviewed on planner, and after talking to her for 2 hours I had already made up my mind that I was going to work with her- you know what they say, when you know you know!!!"To exc
On what she enjoyed most:
"Honestly, it was working with a team who was just as excited to bring my vision to life as I was. I could not have been more fortunate to have found my wedding coordination team, planning was always a blast- it felt like I had known the girls for years."
On the wedding style:
"So it all began with the color pallette- I'm Punjabi/Hindu and he is Irish/Episcopalian. I wanted to center around colors that would be meaningful to both cultures. So to represent my traditional bridal color, I went with a deep wine red, and to represent his culture I went with an off-white. Lastly, I needed a color to tie it together so I chose charcoal grey- which happens to be one of his favorite colors. These 3 colors trickled through the wedding, reception and Christian wedding the next day with each color being highlighted differently at different events and with different accenting colors so it didn't look like the same event over and over and over again. After chosing the color palette I followed my gut feeling- I couldn't always describe exactly what look I was going for, but I knew the feeling I wanted things to evoke- I wanted a sense of intimate elegance- a warm and inviting enviornment with a touch of class without being gawdy or unnecessarily oppulent, and with a more modern flair. My wonderful designer and wedding planner took it from there!"
