Tropical Indian Wedding at the Ritz Carlton Bacara


We love a wedding that celebrates a couple's cultural roots and also reflects the couple's personal style. For Deepa and Bharadwaj this meant, choosing the scenic Bacara Resort to host their traditional nuptials. Ceremony was held outdoors, where a large stage was setup for the mandap and decorated by Kismet Event Design. Gold punched lanterns, strung flowers and golden archways decorated both the structure and aisle. Traditionally, the groom enters on a horse, but in this case a motorcycle was much more apropos. For ceremony, the couple donned traditional garb, including a stunning red sari paired with numerous gold and red bangles. After the ceremony, the couple changed into more westernized clothing, with a stunning dress featuring silver sequins and an elegant black tux for the groom.

For the reception design, it was all about tropical greenery, with a variety leaves arranged by Blue Magnolia Events. At each placesetting, even more tropical leaves could be found as they were tucked under the transparent chargers for a truly unique look. A special thanks to Madeline Druce Photography  for capturing the day and to all the vendors who worked so hard to pull off this wedding day!

Crossroads Estate Wedding with Cloche Floral Details


The elegant Crossroads Estate in Santa Ynez was the perfect location for Kelly and Ethan's wedding day. Kelly choose a fitted lace dress with a plunging back line. The bouquet by Anna Le Pley Taylor featured cafe au lait dahlias, hydranga, and spray roses. Ceremony was held under the old oak and featured a swath of roses and greenery as the backdrop. The aisle was lined with more lush floral and a burlap aisle runner. 

Cocktail hour was held on the lawn and featured food stations along with tray passed appetizers by Duo Events. Dinner was held in the barn, with long tables setup for guests. Flowers were arranged in cloches and geometric lanterns for a modern take. For dessert, a station of smores was setup for guests to enjoy and a petite wedding cake by Decadence was decorated with petite blush roses.
