Favors and Decor
The wedding tables were beautifully adorned with floral arrangements meticulously crafted by the bride herself. These exquisite arrangements featured delicate shades of pink and gray, blending harmoniously with the overall ceremony decor and reflecting the colors of the varmala garlands exchanged by the couple. Furthermore, the inclusion of loose leaf tea favors added an elegant touch to the occasion. These thoughtful favors, presented in small glass cylinders and available in an array of flavors, served as delightful mementos for guests to take home after the wedding. The combination of these stunning floral arrangements and personalized tea favors truly captured the unique essence of the bride and groom, imparting a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all attendees.
The groom, adorned in a stunning blue suit paired with a delicate blush pink turban walked down the aisle accompanied by soft, melodious tunes. On the other hand, the bride showcased her intricate mendhi design that elegantly stretched from her fingertips to her elbows, escorted to the altar by her mother. The heartfelt exchange of varmala garlands, symbolizing love in traditional Hindu weddings, incorporated fresh flowers seamlessly woven into the garlands, complementing the couple’s attire flawlessly. This amalgamation of diverse cultural elements resulted in a truly captivating and cherished moment, making it a standout highlight of the wedding.
The sand ceremony was a highlight of this intimate micro-wedding. The couple joyfully took turns pouring vibrant colors of sand into a glass vase, symbolizing their union and the intertwining of their lives. The outcome was a breathtaking, multicolored keepsake serving as a poignant reminder of their special union. This symbolic ritual beautifully represents the joining of two lives, making the ceremony truly unforgettable.
The wedding cake was a delicious addition to this intimate micro-wedding. It featured delightful pink and blue cascade of flowers. This delectable treat not only pleased the taste buds but also served as a captivating centerpiece that perfectly complemented the charming décor at Ravenswood Mansion. Complimenting their wedding cake was a plate of colorful macarons, the bride’s favorite. That sweet little addition truly made for a memorable celebration.
Bridal mendhi, a mesmerizing form of creative expression, has a rich history spanning centuries. Rooted in tradition, this artistry involves adorning hands and feet with exquisite henna paste patterns. From traditional symbols to contemporary elements, the designs are diverse and distinctive. It’s believed that the darker the mendhi once dried, the greater longevity it signifies in a marital union. There is true beauty and symbolism in this timeless art form.
The blended micro wedding at Ravenswood Mansion was truly a stunning and unforgettable event. This unique celebration beautifully combined Christian and Sheikh traditions, while incorporating personal touches that truly reflected the couple’s love story.
