We are featuring a colorful east meets west wedding today that will make you smile from ear to ear.  If you missed any of Part I of this featured wedding, you should definitely take a peek. 
Bel Inizio Photography shot this incredible wine country wedding, and the pictures will take your breath away.  I love the way they photographed all the lovely details & captured priceless moments.  {Make sure you don't miss the one of the cutest little flower girls!}

More from our bride: So two focal points for us were the music and the food.  This was one of the few places in wine country that would let me have the tandoor ovens and the whole nine yards. Sizzling Tandoor, a fabulous Indian caterer based in Sonoma County, put together an amazing display of Indian food for everyone. The cocktail hour featured a classical Indian band "Ragas to Riches" and had sitar, tabla, and harmomium while people munched on Indian appetizers & mango lassi martinis (soooo yummy). For the reception, we hired a band called Busta Groove that belted 80s, 90s, and today's hits. (They were incredible!) During breaks, the bhangra was there! We took a the rec from Maharani Weddings and walked down the aisle to Desi Girl after the ceremony so we also ended the night with the song....it was a HUGE hit at the wedding!

We had custom made flower girl lenghas made in India that matched the fushia motif.  The flower girls had never met before and became the best of friends! They held orange kissing balls of mini roses to go with the theme.

The cake.. this company in wine country was awesome and local... the whole thing was done in ivory, pink, and orange fondant.  She custom ordered elephant outlines to make the mini elephants along the side of the cake. It turned out gorgeous! (And withstood the Sonoma heat in the tent!)

For the tables... we ordered orange and fushia satin table cloths and had tea lights surrounding cala lillys and orchids, mixed with fushia and orange roses arrangements.  The table numbers I handmade out of my huge wedding invitations. I was in love with the fushia and gold invitations from India, so I used them to make free standing table numbers that all were named after special places that Dan and I had memories of.

Dan's mother unfortunately had passed away from breast cancer years ago, and we wanted to honor her that day. Breast cancer causes are near and dear to our hearts, so instead of favors we made a donation to the Susan G Komen breast cancer foundation and left cards on each seat informing guests of our donation.  It meant a lot to so many of our friends and family who have been affected by cancer.  To continue with the elephant theme, each card was accompanied by a mini handmade elephant key chain we brought from India!

We have lots of goodies coming up…Our finale is on it's way!
