The versatility at The Estate on the Halifax made it a dreamlike location for Helen and Deepak’s destination wedding. The Taiwanese-Indian ceremony and reception were photographed by Mark Dickinson. At the event, the couple merged their heritages which called for elaborate ensembles and vibrant color combinations.
The ceremony incorporated several cultural traditions, including Mangalya Dharane, Sambandha Male, and a tea ceremony. Wiley Lowe did a masterful job as ceremony officiant, and Helen’s hair and makeup looked beautiful thanks to Shelly Seymour. Her ceremony dress was designed by Maggie Sottero, and she wore shoes by Badgley Mischka.
Helen’s bridesmaids wore dresses that reflect both the Indian and Taiwanese culture. The bride changed her dress three times to keep with tradition. During the ceremony, the bride smashed a roof tile for good luck and fortune. Helen said this was the most comical moment of the ceremony!
Multicolored floral arrangements by Details Flowers decorated the ceremony and reception in vivid purples and reds. You and I Pictures filmed the entire event–leaving on video for long-lasting memories of their big day.
The Pastry Studio provided a dessert bar that offered mini tarts, chocolate covered strawberries, and other delightful treats. Puff ‘n Stuff catering brought delicious food that the guests enjoyed. A Chair Affair’s gold Chiavari chairs and chargers accented the Helen’s jeweled gown and the extravagant centerpieces. The DJ Man Joe kept the guests moving after dinner with exciting music choices!
Helen and Deepak’s wedding was truly a one-of-a-kind event and a beautiful mix of cultures and traditions. A Chair Affair sends an immense congratulations to the happy couple and thanks all of these talented event professionals:
