GUSHING GOLD

Mixing cultures has become universal, but melding hearts from two different religions can be tricky at times. The day started with an exuberant barat that led in to the sacred Hindu ceremony rich with color, emotion and textures. Next, an extended cocktail transition hour complete with Indian tea & spices to prepare our guests for the next cultural experience. With the clouds parting perfectly at sundown, the groom honored his long time Judaism with an end of Shabbat ceremony under the moonlit chuppa. The guests dined & danced the night away, full of rich traditions of bhangra dancing, knife throwing and sweet treats in to the wee hours of the night.

CLASSIC CULTURE

The Lebanese love for great food and passion for color, set the tone for this couple. A December wedding that had to move inside a couple of days before, became the sanctuary to exchange their vows under the dramatic lit structure. Real trees were brought in to adorn the ballroom, reminding us that spring and new beginnings were just around the corner.
