A Maharani should know that when it comes to wedding decorations, it's easy to simply use color to completely transform a room.  What I love about this reception, other than the fact that the venue is at the gorgeous Bently Reserve in San Francisco's Financial District, is how well the colors are tied to together.  I don't just mean from flowers to cakes to the reception stage.  Actually, this Maharani totally rocks her reception colors... by wearing them!  The purples and blues you see in the centerpieces perfectly match this Maharani's purple and blue contrasting lengha, bangles and even the adorable little flower in her hair.

From Maharani Punam:
After the extremely romantic proposal, we had 9 months to plan our June 18th fairy tale wedding. As a young girl I dreamt of how I would want my wedding to be and knew that I wanted it to be chic and elegant. The event planning started with the purchase of both of our wedding outfits in India. The outfits were embossed with a flourish pattern that I fell in love with and decided to incorporated it as a theme throughout the wedding in the invitations, schedule of events, lighting on the ceiling, table cameras, and the bar signs for the signature drink. I wanted to have an even flow of colors to match throughout our special day so I infused everything with ivory/champagne and gold tones. Choosing the venue was a task in itself. The venue we finalized was this amazing little gem in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District. Our vision of the perfect day had come to life. Both Hemil and I were ecstatic and guests were amazed with the ambiance, décor, and food. The memories will live with us forever thanks to the terrific job done by all of the vendors and especially Wedding Documentary for capturing every moment with precision. It was the single most important day of our life. We were marrying our soul mate, our best friend, the love of our life. We made a commitment to each other for better or worse – sickness and health – we are now bound together forever.

Congratulations to Punam and Hemil!
