Indian Wedding, Temple ceremony & Hotel Reception

So we had Jas and Lucky’s wedding in two locations over two days.  Teri was actually going to do both days as I was in Australia, but as fate steps in my return flight got changed on me bringing me home a day early, so I was able to jump in and be there on the Temple Ceremony day. Jas came in on a horse for the baraat and they exited the day in a  helicopter, inbetween lunch was served in the tent that was put up.

The next day their wedding reception was at the Bayfront Hilton in San Diego, we have done a few Indian weddings here now, as they have a great infrastructure, plenty of banquet space and different areas so for multi day and events the guests get to experience different views/atmospheres, and lots of hotel rooms so that means they are more willing to give great room rates for the guests staying.

Our groom was really into the design/look of the ballroom, the variety of centerpieces and table looks.  Our friends at Square Root did an awesome job with the ballroom, floral/linens/dancefloor/decal, and TMMPRO draped the room and provided the chivaris and we had Chivari Chair Rentals come and cover the seat cushions as we wanted silver not the normal white or ivory.  We had our friend Sandeep both days handling the music, we love him.  As you can tell by the photos we were working both days with our good friend and awesome photographer Frank Salas, Robles Video who has created a real niche in the Indian market were up bright and early both days (Friday was around 3am!!).  Dolled up by Lulu did the beautification both days of the ladies.  The team at Hilton Bayfront headed by Lisa Gossman were fabulous as always.

We bought Karla from Elegant by Design in for the Friday event at the Temple, she created the focal wall/picture backdrop area and had to redo the dining table two times when we changed the linens from breakfast to lunch, go EBD

Till next week

San Diego Hilton Indian Wedding

Had a great two day celebration with this great couple who live in Chicago. It was a 350 person wedding, and not one person came from San Diego, everyone flew in from all around the world and the USA. It was a December wedding and the couple chose San Diego because they knew the chances of an outdoor ceremony and people wanting to come to S CA, would be pretty good. They were right.
The sangeet was held at the Hall of Champions in Balboa Park, it was themed so we didn’t need to spend money on decor.
On the wedding day, we had two ceremonies, one earlier in the day indoors, then a second early afternoon on the lawn with the San Diego harbor as the backdrop (I can imagine in summer that has to look wonderful), and of course my Jigar came in on the elephant, he kept going back and forth on this or a horse, but he was a groom worthy of the elephant and it was perfect. The ceremony ended just as a good rain shower came down and it got a bit cool, but all that it changed was instead of the normal lengthy time of photos infront of the mandap with a lot of the guests, we did immediate family quickly and then the rest of the photos inside the hotel. Then everyone got to freshen up/relax, get ready for the evening event. The ballroom looked great, we had 3 different centerpieces which is a nice thing to do when you have 40 tables in a room to add a bit of interest/dimension, and the backdrop on the stage turned out fabulously. This is a new trend, panels being used at ceremonies and behind sweetheart tables, hips things up, and as with these panels when candles and flowers are added, it really looks fabulous. The night ended with the guests following the bride & groom down to the side entrance of the hotel where a Taco truck was waiting.
We had a lot of fun when the couple were in town for meetings, the moms laughed a lot, and the groom kept me laughing. A nice wedding celebration to end the year with.
A wedding celebration like this means a long list of vendors, so thanks to everyone involved, as well as the Hilton who were great to work with during the planning months and especially on the day.
