Happy Wedding Wednesday!
What is purple, gold & fabulous all over? This stunning Vermont wedding! While it's a traditional American wedding, it's laced with Indian wedding traditions, like henna & elephants, that make it pretty special. Not to mention with her amazing henna & golden jewels, the Bride takes the win for the best accessories! Lucas DeSousa Photography shows us the beauty:
Mala & Colin got married on September 15, 2012 at The Essex Culinary Resort & Spa in Essex, Vermont. Nestled between the Green Mountains & Lake Champlain, the venue is pure Vermont beauty. The Bride & Groom's special day was infused with purple & gold details, including darling gilded elephants, & Indian culture.
The outdoor wedding ceremony was held on The East Lawn, offering picturesque views of Vermont greenery. The gorgeous Bride wore a white gown with a gold sash, accented with golden jewels & intricate henna. She walked down a red & gold rose petal-lined aisle to meet her handsome Groom at the red & gold chiffon ceremony tent. In a nod to the Bride's Indian heritage, the ceremony was laced with meaningful Indian wedding customs such as the exchange of garlands & walk around the fire. The Bride & Groom became husband & wife surrounded by their beloved family & friends.
The celebration continued at the fun reception. Floating candles twinkled above submerged deep purple orchids, while tiny elephants graced everything from the escort cards to the drinks to the wedding cake. Fun fact: the elephants trunk must be raised to be considered good luck. It was the perfect setting to eat, drink & be married!
My Favorite Moment: The exchange of the garlands, symbolizing acceptance of one another & pledging to respect one another, is just lovely & meaningful.
My Favorite Detail: The bride & bridesmaids have the most beautiful henna decorations!
Congratulations, Mala & Colin!
