Indian wedding inspiration with tangerine, coral and sapphire tones
“Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale.” -Melissa Brown
The vibrant colors of Indian weddings look incredible on film and this editorial from photographer Heather Roth Photography makes me lust after bolder colors this summer in the wedding world. Oranges, Sapphires, Corals and textures in abundance, I love the use of foliage and florals in the wedding design...
From Lauren Field Design: "Being surrounded by plush foliage and tranquil water is always magical and The Lalumondiere Mill & Rivergardens will enchant you at first glance. This estate has such unexpected architectural gems throughout the property that include handcrafted metal work, original antique wood, and stone structures. The steady stream of water over the rock dam and expansive views from atop the main ridge of trees provided the perfect backdrop reminiscent of what we can imagine an Eastern India landscape to be like.
We wanted to create a modern take on the deeply traditional and spiritual custom in Indian wedding culture. These long-established color stories of heritage ignited our passion to focus on color, texture and movement. Our color palette gathered tangerine orange, fern, gold, sapphire blue, and deep coral. These rich tones adorned the all white sweethearts table accented with loose white rose petals and custom intertwined seat details in oversized orange yarn. Being surrounded by the abundant vines that have taken root on the ceiling structure we added several coral flower garlands to encompass an ever growing peaceful atmosphere."
"Loose greenery and tiny kumquat beans accented the artisanal work of the calligraphy place cards on painted ceramic. The invitation suite is delicately wrapped with a fringe band displaying an exquisite gold medallion. Once placed all together it sits neatly in a linen wedding box that displays the saying “Let Us Walk Together.” The vibrant orange motif on the fan program adds the perfect contrast to the neutral and subtle tones on the main invitation.
Our bride radiates grace as her gold hand stitched & beaded vintage sari drapes so beautifully to the ground showcasing the intricate mehndi patterns displayed on her hands and feet. The added layers of her gold jewelry and handmade metal headpiece showcase her delightful features.
The celebration of marriage is very symbolic in many cultures. It shows the special significance of love in its purest form. Wedding traditions was deeply important for us because we wanted to reveal the joyful and romantic embrace between two families. Traditions provide a connection between us all and allow new values and customs to be inherited in our lives so we can practice them in the future."
