Multi-Ceremony Seattle Wedding

This colorful fusion wedding was just so beautiful! Happy Shaadi, who designed the wedding, gave us all the yummy details on Rachel and Saurabh's gorgeous 2-day celebration that we were lucky enough to do the catering for! The Hindu ceremony took place at the ISKCON Temple at the Vedic Cultural Center in Sammamish and then the Western ceremony took place at Clise Mansion in Redmond. Both events featured the gorgeous combination of red, white and gold as the color scheme to tie the multi-day events together, and the richness of the color red really brought in the elegant Indian feel along with touches from India and of course the bridal henna. The couple had a traditional Indian wedding feast at the Hindu celebration the day before the Western ceremony and reception where we created a classic American wedding menu. What an awesome way to celebrate a union - two days is much better than one! We were thrilled to be a part of this joyous occasion and always love seeing the photos of the weddings we are a part of afterwards.
