Colorful Multicultural Celebration

This wedding, captured by the amazing Ingrid Nelson of Myrtle and Marjoram was one of the most interesting I have ever had the opportunity to work on.  The bride and groom lived in England, and wanted to incorporate many cultures into their celebration.  They hosted an intimate Indian ceremony in the Mission Blue Chapel, and instead of standing on the stage, they stood in the middle of the chapel with their group of 80 guests arched around them for a more familial feel.  The reception included unique multi-cultural details like a mariachi band during cocktails, groomsmen in traditional morning suits, and a Guyanese Black Cake.  Additionally, the Mother of the Bride owns a quilting store and brought dozens of handmade quilts to toss around the firepit for guests to snuggle up.  In the reception space, traditional rounds were tossed to the side for a more unique feel.  The room was set with three long kings tables in a U-shape around the edges of the room and the dance floor in the middle.  Planner Melissa Panico at Map Events, and florist Melissa Comito-Aakre of Simple Ceremony named each of the three tables: crane, shell and marigold and instead of table names,and each table was intricately designed to reflect its theme.
