Nick and Natasha's wedding

After last week's beautiful Sangeet, last Saturday was Nick and Natasha's wedding. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy.

Beautiful bride

Most beautiful bride and groom

In addition to appetizers and drinks that were circulating, there was a station that served bite-sized fruit, tidbits and nuts for guests to enjoy.

As opposed to traditional flowers, the centerpieces were done with a woodland theme. Dainty ferns and lots of wild flowers were arranged with plenty of moss around. Each and every centerpiece was unique and insanely beautiful.

Place cards were designed by the artistic bride and drawn by the very talented groom. I love every single one of them.

Here I am with a few of my friends

Exotic flora and ferns were arranged in individual simple glass vases at the cocktail area

All ready for an evening of fun and festivities

The event site was nestled between the Pacific ocean and the Santa Barbara mountains.  
When I reached the table, the menu card was on top of each setting. Underneath that there was a napkin. When you remove the napkin, you see a maiden heir fern on top of a very contemporary white plate. I love little touches like that and attention to detail.  Very elegantly done.

 Here is one example of the arrangement: Unique foliage and dainty white floral sprays, all accented with one lady slipper orchid. Wow! Just beautiful! Candles all along the table lit up the space as the sun fades

Another arrangement with more unique flowers and moss. I couldn't even name many of the flowers used here.

The entire evening felt magical

Congratulation, Natasha and Nick! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness.
