If I had just one line to describe this day I’d say “tradition with a twist.” A modern, color-driven twist, that is. Thanks to a team of top-notch vendors like Downey Street Events and Soulflower Design Studio, Vidya and Krishna designed a day of cultural beauty and modern style, with gorgeous pops of orange everywhere you look. See the pretty from Sabine Scherer right here.
From Downey Street Events… Vidya and Krishna had a wonderful vision for their wedding from the start – a beautiful celebration, inspired by their culture, but with a softer, more elegant feel. They chose a super modern palette of orange, grey, and white, and truly worked with each and every vendor to make sure that every aspect of the wedding looked and felt cohesive.
For the ladies at Downey Street Events, Vidya and Krishna were one of our favorite couples of the year to work with. They participated so beautifully in all aspects of the planning, from coordination to design to customizing a perfect and amazing indian-inspired menu with their caterers. All of the vendors had a wonderful time collaborating with both of them and with their wonderfully families. This wedding was the perfect example of what it means to collaborate as a team of artists, inspired by a wonderful couple with a great vision for their big day.
Vidya and Krishna’s Indian culture was carried throughout much of the wedding decor. Heather at Sixpence Press did an amazing job designing custom paper goods for every aspect of the wedding, from the invitations to the escort cards, using beautiful mandalas and other wonderful illustrations. The escort cards were arranged in metallic trays and sunk into orange lentils for a creative and festive display.
Emily at Souflower Floral Design created lovely arrangements used throughout the wedding, from the traditional marigold garlands surrounding the mandap and ceremony site, to cones of flower petals for guests to toss at the newlyweds in celebration, to custom painted golden bowls filled with florals, oranges, and kumquats on the dinner tables.
Thomas John Events created special dishes just for Vidya and Krishna, after visiting some of their favorite Indian restaurants in the bay area, including custom chaat stations at the cocktail hour. And photographer Sabine Scherer captured the entire event beautifully, at the wonderful Nestldown – a truly unique venue. It didn’t hurt that Vidya and Krishna were married on the longest day of the year, which allowed for a long, leisurely dinner as the sun went down.
