Real Weddings: Carli & Raj's Indian-American Wine Country Wedding



Happy Wedding Wednesday!! We have a treat of a wedding, times two, to share with you lovely readers today! Carli & Raj's beautiful Indian-American wedding was captured by Kathryn at Kreate Photography, and she was present for both the traditional American ceremony, as well the traditional Indian ceremony. The photography is beautiful and stunning, as you soon shall see!  

Kathryn had this to say of Carli & Raj, and their beautiful celebrations:
Having worked with this couple on their San Francisco Yacht engagement party to their Fort Mason Engagement session… the day of their wedding came and I was giddy with excitement knowing how much thought and love was put into every detail. The overall event design by L’Reylea events was absolutely extraordinary. The wedding had a soft + elegant, wine country feel by day that transformed into a magnificent, brightly colored Indian pavilion by night. The DIY Mandap that was created was a work of fine art in itself. The artfully designed florals by ETC Designs were a perfect balance between delicate and rustic to bright, jewel tones for the Indian d├ęcor. Witnessing and documenting this day was a truly special day for me. As a photographer…my passion is to capture beautiful people, places and moments. This couple did an amazing job blending sacred + cultural traditions that were woven into each detail of their wedding day.

So beautiful! I love how colorful everything is. The mandap (the structure seen where the ceremony took place) is amazing. I'm not accustomed to seeing those, and I love the traditional beauty it adds to the ceremony of the joint cultures. 

The bridesmaid dresses are a very pretty shade of blue, and the flowers are so dreamy. Carli's dress is gorgeous, and she makes an exquisite bride.
