Wedding Ideas: Cultural Traditions

Elegant Multicultural Wedding at The Bellevue Conference & Event Center

October 12, 2017 | colleen

Mariam and Mazin elegantly brought their many cultural traditions together for their wedding at The Bellevue Conference & Event Center. With Fara Farzam’s assistance from The Bellevue, she made Mariam and Mazin’s design, floral, and coordination dreams come true. This extra help allowed the happy couple to eliminate stress when planning a culturally typical three-day event down to one day. Mariam’s custom one of a kind gown was used as inspiration with pops of pinks, ivory, and peach found throughout […]

This Mountain Springs Lodge Wedding is Inspired by the African Safari Where the Couple Met

August 1, 2017 | gabby

Marissa and Wessel first met each other while working on a game reserve together in Africa, so it’s no wonder that Africa holds a very special place in both of their hearts. To honor the beginning of their relationship and the groom’s South African roots, Marissa and Wessel channeled all of their favorite African details in their Mountain Springs Lodge wedding with an African Safari theme! The couple beautifully incorporated the theme with table decor inspired by African animals, traditional African accessories […]

Luxe Ethereal Egyptian Wedding at La Maison Bleue El Gouna

July 19, 2017 | gabby

Aayah and Amr’s Egyptian wedding at La Maison Bleue El Gouna was a true vision of luxurious elegance! With the help of their planner, the couple dreamed up a theme of Ethereal Decadence and saw it come to life with larger-than-life bird cages on the beach, a “dirty pastel” color palette (think: muted oranges, deep pinks, and rich ivories), and traditional Egyptian entertainment like a belly dancer and a Zaffa band. Dani Ford Photography captured every detail of this wedding wonderfully, including […]

This Understated Jerusalem Wedding at Nafoura Restaurant Took Cues From the Symbolic Olive Branch

July 16, 2017 | juliette

Between the narrow brick alleyways that lead to Christ Church Jerusalem and Nafoura Restaurant‘s cozy courtyard reception space, Mia and Benjamin’s wedding in the Holy Land was where old-world charm met modern elegance. The bride (Mia Moessinger), who is a professional wedding photographer and designer, put her creative skills to work by designing nearly every detail, including the flowers, invitations, and even her own dress. The main color inspiration came from the simple and symbolic olive branch, which added a naturally elegant feel […]

This UC Botanical Garden Wedding is the Epitome of Laid-Back Glamour

July 1, 2017 | juliette

Alexa and Aran’s UC Botanical Garden wedding was as pretty as can be! They took full advantage of the expansive and diverse gardens by holding the ceremony in an amphitheater of redwoods, the reception in a palm tree garden, and taking portraits amid fields of wildflowers. This creative couple also got crafty with their decor by making the ceremony arbor and 3 large reception banners and by using pieces from their own home as decorations. The bride even made her […]

May 24, 2017 | juliette

Doris and Sam’s Kenya elopement is hands-down one of the most adventurous, exhilarating, and culturally diverse weddings we’ve had the honor of featuring on our blog! The couple spent their first day exploring the Sopa Resort at Lake Navaisha, where they encountered wild birds, giraffes, and zebras before hopping in a Land Cruiser for a safari tour through the Masai Mara Game Reserve. On the second day, they ventured out into the desert with a group […]

Blended Christian and Hindu Wedding at Loft 310

May 11, 2017 | gabby

Teri and Sanjay’s Kalamazoo wedding was all about fusion. Their industrial venue, Loft 310 in Kalamazoo, Michigan, was a fusion of location, being halfway between their current city of Chicago and their hometown of Fort Wayne. Their two ceremonies, Christian and Hindu, were a fusion of their cultures, and every detail (down to Teri’s bridal looks and their dinner menus!) beautifully reflected their two styles. We are so in love with how Rhino Weddings photographed Teri and Sanjay’s bright […]

This Vibrant Multicultural Wedding at Micklefield Hall Had 3 Beautiful Ceremonies

May 3, 2017 | gabby

Mansi and Angus had always wanted to honor their cultural backgrounds at their wedding, so instead of having just one ceremony, the couple’s special day featured 3 multicultural ceremonies! Their Micklefield Hall wedding began with a stunning Hindu ceremony, then was followed by civil and Jewish ceremonies next to a gorgeous pond. We love how seamless Mansi’s style transitions from traditional Hindu attire Photographer Ann-Kathrin Koch captured every beautiful moment of Mansi and Angus’s wedding, including their vibrant floral details. The Couple: […]

The ceremony then continued with slight twists on Western wedding traditions, including a mad-lib style vow exchange! With the help of  Top Knot Events, the couple created a constellation theme in shades of blue and […]
