Colorful Spring Multicultural Wedding

One of the things I love most about weddings, beyond the obvious pretty, is the blending of tradition. In the words of the bride, “Even before we got engaged, we talked about having a wedding that was not only a celebration of us, but also of our community and our wonderful cultures coming together.”  A fusion of Mexican, Scottish and Indian influences, this day is rich in cultural beauty and The Vault is your spot to peruse Diana McGregors’s incredible captures.

From The Bride…From the moment we saw the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, Raj and I knew we would get married there. We were both drawn to its serene courtyards and natural beauty and we loved the idea of getting married in Santa Barbara, a place our traveling friends and family could relax and enjoy for the whole weekend.

Even before we got engaged, we talked about having a wedding that was not only a celebration of us, but also of our community and our wonderful cultures coming together. Rajen is of Indian and Mexican descent and I was born and raised in Scotland, but moved to the states many years ago. We decided to bring in different elements from each culture and ended up with this really fun, colorful, musical day that was better than anything we could have hoped for!

Our fabulous photographer, Diana McGregor, captured it beautifully and we were constantly impressed with our DJ, Sukh Chugh, who kept the dance floor full throughout the night. In the end, it really came down to the people – watching our families come together in kilts and saris, dancing to bhangra music was amazing!

Rustic Waterside Wedding in Auburn, CA

In keeping with today’s unofficial theme of lakeside celebrations, this next rustic wedding is one you won’t forget. Photographed by Joel Serrato, filmed by Elysium and planned to the nines by Laurie Arons, it’s a day set on California’s Lake Combie which just so happens to be the spot this couple shared their first kiss years earlier. We’re tipping our hats to A Day In MayValley FloraTEAMLa TavolaCurlicue Designs and all the vendors who made it happen, and heading straight to The Vault.

From Laurie Arons Special Events… Water is an essential element for Kristina and Devin. Both grew up around the water (he spending a lot of time in his mothers home state of Hawaii and she at her family’s summer lake house in Northern California) and each later became talented water polo players.

So it was only natural that the couple chose Kristina’s family home on Lake Combie in Auburn, California because they wanted a fun and relaxed lake front wedding. It was also the spot where they first kissed years ago as teenagers.

When it came time to say I Do, the bride and groom were married on a reclaimed wood platform surrounded by lush white and green florals. The clear blue lake served as the backdrop for their vows.

At the reception, guests dined under the stars and string lights in the family’s backyard. A mix of wood farm tables with runners and fully draped tables with wedgewood blue linens were set with gold china and flatware, and fresh natural centerpieces. Kristina and Devin cleverly named the table after bodies of water with special meaning to them.

DJ Chris Clouse kicked off dancing in front of a custom “wood wall”, assembled and cut like a beautiful stack of firewood. The Perfect Endings wedding cake with its birch bark look completed the rustic reception.

From Coco TranEric and Isabel have been dating over a decade, just a few months after Eric proposed to Isabel in Hawaii, they received joful news thatIsabel was expecting! The wedding planning was put on hold, until little Tyler was born. Three years have passed and Isabelle and Eric along with their son Tyler stood in front of their closest friends and family to read each others personal vows to each other. The sweetest moments and words were exchanged, and not one person had dry eyes in the audience.

Isabel and Eric picked Lake Tahoe, as it holds a special place in their hearts. Both avid snowboarders, they spent a lot of their time enjoying the slopes. There was no other place that would of been perfect for them to tie the knot than The Hideout, Lake Tahoe.

They envisioned an intimate outdoor setting to gather their friends and families. Good food and great company was the most important thing to them. They both shared a lovely day and evening dancing below the stars until the wee hours, celebrating ten years of being together and cheering to many more.
