South Asian/Indian Wedding Photo Shoot

South Asian/Indian Wedding Photo Shoot

Happy Monday!! # 3 on the list of 2018 Favorites was a South Asian/Indian Wedding Shoot collaboration. 


Early in the spring, I was asked to design florals for an Indian wedding photo shoot at the Hyatt on Lake Washington in Renton, WA. I was thrilled at the opportunity to be included. I only knew Annu Sangha of Always Planning for You, and looked forward to meeting new vendors in this space. The venue was contemporary and sophisticated. Seeing the splendor of henna tattoo, exquisite drapery, and the intricate detail of a wedding gown dripping in gorgeous jewels was spectacular and so inspiring! I have yet to personally be a guest at an Indian wedding (hint hint 😉 ) but have been told on numerous occasions they are so much fun! Revisiting this imagery still takes my breath away. I am so grateful to have been asked to be a part of this experience.

..💡 TAKEAWAY!!! 💡..
I firmly believe South Asian/Indian Weddings are a growing niche in the Pacific Northwest wedding industry. Learn as much about the traditions and particular details for all South Asian/Indian weddings as one can. It was fantastic working with such bold color palettes and delightful people! Plus, this experience led to more opportunities that really stretched my creative capabilities as a designer in the months ahead.

Thank you to all who participated. Wishing you the warmest of Holidays and a Happy New Year!
