Words from the photogrpaher:
Our team gathered in Harrisville, NH at the beautiful Aldworth Manor to shoot this multi-cultural wedding scene invoking Hindu traditions. Many on the vendor team have a wedding or two this season where similar Hindu traditions will be the primary theme. This was a great opportunity to demonstrate the various elements involved in the wedding celebration and their meaningful rituals.
The ceremony floral installation featured an ombré hanging carnation curtain, suspended from a white garden arbor in the manor's sun room. The bridal bouquet was a petite collection of free flowing spring blooms and was tied with a cotton macrame patterned ribbon. The lush varmalas were composed of carnations and spray roses, tied with a macrame ribbon to complement the bridal bouquet and hanging carnation curtain.
The floral design for the tablescape included a lush peony centerpiece and two fern bud vases. The rich deep tones of the peonies and ranunculus provided depth and sophistication to the color palette. Meanwhile, the accent flowers of delphinium, garden roses, and carnations provided bright pops of spring color with Fritillaria and umbrella fern bringing a touch of natural whimsy. Tone on tone minimalism was the inspiration for the table design. Simple clean lines to draw attention to the florals and the menus. The chairs were pulled away for the photograph to show the nice drape of the suede tablecloth.
The invitation is enclosed in a deep red laser cut sleeve with a beautiful medallion pattern and has gold foil accents for the couple’s monogram. The envelopes are a soft champagne and highlight the couple’s monogram. The menu is printed on matching soft champagne and features the same medallion pattern with touches of red and turquoise. The couples monogram is hidden at the center. Gold foil accents highlight each course.
Hilltop Kitchen NH provided the Indian inspired food. The appetizers included crispy curried chick peas, flaky samosas and turmeric-glazed tofu. This was followed by a plate of lemon-tandoori chicken on a bed of basmati rice. So delicious!! The cake design was inspired by the hints of blue in the Bride's lehenga. The base fondant was in line with the tone on tone feel.
Misch B Couture and Kunda Sets supplied the clothing with blush and cream undertones as well as the traditional red. The use of turmeric, kum-kum, rice, fire, incense and bells were all fun to learn about and incorporate into this styled shoot. We here at Events by Sorrell thank you for your consideration and hope you enjoy our submission.
