Today, we are featuring Nisha and Jay's spectacular wedding sent to us by Woodward+Rick Photographers. Brian and Gry are a husband and wife team based out of Asheville, North Carolina but they also shoot in South Carolina, Georgia and Florida (and LOVE to travel!). Their images ... from the littlest details to the biggest emotions ... are simply awesome!
Nisha and Jay were married in September '08 at the Biltmore Estate. When you think of a tented reception, wow! Fit for royalty!
The colors used in this wedding are nothing short of extraordinary! Pairing the rich reds and corals with the golden orange hues is so beautiful.
All of the fabulous flowers were done by Blossoms at Biltmore Park. And the cake! LOVE the cake ... by the Biltmore Estate bakers. The whole thing was planned by Little Black Book event planner, Nicole Riley at Verge Events. Oh my gosh ... this was a fabulous celebration and the details were simply stunning.
Look at the way the placecards are arranged in a bed of crystal glitz! ADORE ...
We just heard from Nisha ....
I did the invitation design myself. I found the images that I wanted to use (the paisley, etc), bought the rights to it, had a graphics firm do the layout on the stationery I chose, and used The Baggie Goose to print the final pieces. If you'll notice, the same motif is on the cake, the border of the bridesmaid saris, the placecards, the menu, and even projected as an image on the dancefloor! I really like branding, so I had a lot of fun with it.
The saris that these lovely ladies are wearing were purchased in India by Nisha's mom. Nisha's gown is designed by Lazaro.
Jay, the oh-so handsome groom, appears to be every photographer's dream! The emotions on his face that Brian and Gry captured throughout the day are simply priceless.
Today's elegant wedding ceremony took place in the Walled Garden at the Biltmore. The celebration that followed was in the Italian Garden. The Biltmore Estate is about as spectacular as it gets for a wedding venue! For more of Nisha & Jay's wedding, take a look at their slideshow!
We started the day by telling you about what great people we think Brian and Gry (a.k.a., Woodward + Rick) are. We feel it only fitting to close with a quote from their website that sums up their philosophy ...
"Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is. Laugh!"
