I'm a little obsessed with Indian weddings. I think they are so beautiful - bright, vibrant, happy, and they usually include a few dress changes, and that's never a bad thing. But this one, from Lang Thomas Photography, might just take the elephant-topped cake. Marti's Floral Designs worked alongside the bride and planner extraordinaire Viva Bella Events to create a wedding that is going to haunt my dreams, in the very best way possible!

From the photographer... My husband and I just shot an incredible wedding and it was too good to not send your way. It was unlike any wedding we’ve seen before—not only was the wedding treated as a joining of two families, but two cultures as well. The bride (from India) and the groom (from Cincinnati) put forth a great effort to stylistically marry their two backgrounds. It played out as an elaborate, colorful wedding, full of amazing food, lots of elephants, beautiful dress, and a memorable ping-pong match.

Some of the special touches of the day – sari’s worn by bride and several bridesmaids, hand drawn elephant guest book (by the bride), clay elephant cake toppers (by the bride), the henna tattoos on all the bridesmaids, the historic castle and grounds that hosted the ceremony and reception, the literal “tying the knot” Indian custom, unique rings, table settings + floral, and the ping pong match that introduced the bride and groom (they met playing ping pong during their study breaks in med school).
