Sara + Daniel: A Ravishing Indian-Jewish Fusion Wedding by Nadia D. Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Fusion weddings have a special place in our hearts… The blending of two heritages always make for a unique and personal event and it’s so refreshing to revel in the color and creativity incorporated into the day. Sara is Indian American and Daniel is Jewish American, so the evening began with a traditional Jewish ceremony beneath a gorgeous chuppah: all parents joined the couple under the canopy, and the ketubah design evoked a feeling of Indian artwork. Nadia D. photographed every last detail of the dramatic event at Atlanta’s InterContinental Buckhead Hotel and we’re excited to share the bold and captivating imagery.

In a unique twist, Daniel’s niece and nephew sang the kiddush and motzi blessings before dinner in the magically transformed ballroom, replete with flowers in shades of pink, red and purple by Edge Design, and oversized, beaded lampshade centerpieces. But the highlight of the room had to be the white starlit dance floor – the LED lights embedded in the floor twinkled like stars. The most memorable moment of the evening: when Daniel performed a rap song titled “Fly Together” that he had written for Sara, describing their courtship, including their engagement at Lake Rabun, and declaring his undying love for her!

Color & Culture in Portola Valley by Volatile Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

I’m awe-struck, awe-inspired and in love with today’s real wedding and so excited to share! Emily and Adam’s Indian-Jewish fusion wedding was a celebration of culture and tons of color… which just makes me so happy. A bold palette and unique, very personalized details made the day a total work of art.  In fact, they did much of the hard work themselves… Emily and her friends even sourced most of the florals from the San Francisco Flower Mart!  Kristy from Volatile Photography captured every last ounce of vibrant color… These photos are sure to brighten your day and inspire your palette!

Emily’s vibrant sari was her mother’s, from her wedding day 37 years ago. She also wore her grandmother’s jewels in combination with a few pieces she picked up at Sagar in Sunnyvale.

The couple took their vows under a traditional Jewish chuppah- with bright floral garlands hanging from the fabric.  Emily and Adam’s fresh approach to blending tradition was deeply personal and very alive.  

The bride and groom met at a party that Emily’s roommates threw. Adam was standing near the door, just about to leave, when Emily spotted him from across the room.  She instantly new that she couldn’t let him get away and made a bee-line for the door to strike up a conversation (just like in a movie)!  Ever since that night, they’ve barely spent a day apart.

The vibrant, airy wedding was held at the Portola Valley Town Hall, a gorgeous architectural venue. Vivid blooms, patterns, texture, and eventually a room of colorfully dressed guests filled the hall with bright energy.

There is more to see from the day; head here to revel in the full story!

Under the Tuscan Sun
Posted by Kate. Filed under Real Weddings

Sometimes simple is really just so beautiful.  When I received these photos from Jessica and Jordan’s outdoor wedding in Tuscany, I fell in love with the Italian countryside… the olive branches… the simple sunflower florals…the very happy couple… and the sweet simplicity of their day.  The wedding was planned by Weddings in Tuscany and photographed by Lisa Poggi.  The couple’s interfaith ceremony was followed by an reception overlooking the stunning landscape.  Oh, to wed at an Italian villa…
