Real Wedding: Lakshmi and Sunil (Part 2)
If you missed the wedding overview and vendor roundup, go back to Part 1.
Sangeet: Lakshmi and Sunil wanted a Moroccan style event. Note the mini tent in the far corner. There were 2 others throughout the ballroom. Prabha Bhambri did a great job with swagging the ceiling, decorating the stage and the rest of the ballroom.
Surrounding the stage were low furniture groupings for a lounge like feel.
The stunning stage.
We set up a small stage in the center of the ballroom where a Mehndi artist worked. Bindis and bangles were available for guests too.
Table setting with a gorgeous Indian inspired peacock blue tablecloth from DC Rental. We alternated between this color and a pink tablecloth of the same design.
Groom on his horse for the baraat with the horse and its handler from Harmon's.
Due to the rain, wet grass, heat and humidity, we moved the ceremony inside. Another beautiful mandap from Prabha.
Look at the cute flower elephant.
The 7 tier cake!
The reception was held in the Blue Room. This is the stage with the head table. Isn't it gorgeous?
The Blue Room bathed appropriately in blue lighting. The couple provided plasma screens around the room so that all could see the toasts.

The South Beach inspired white double bar from Gala. Isn't it cool? Note the blue light in the background during cocktail hour in the Pre-function area.
You can see the white banquette in the center of the room in this photo. Note how the lighting is now changed to pink in the same pre-function area during dessert.
