Charlestontowne Landing Vibrant Wedding

July 26, 2017

There’s an abundance of reasons that Shreya & Brijesh’s Charlestowne Landing wedding was destined to be an exciting and lavish event. From the imported silk and ceremonial necklaces, to one of the most joyous crews of friends and family we’ve seen in quite a while, this occasion will not be soon forgotten. One thing is for sure: we are happy the couple called on Tiger Lily’s expertise to help them celebrate their union with triumph and in splendor.

Red Shutter Studio photographed the event, artfully capturing not only the couple’s love for each other but also the meticulous care that Shreya and Brijesh put into every detail.

Their invitations used a mix of paint and graphic design to become a prized idea for wedding bloggers everywhere, while the intricate bridal mehndi (similar to henna) was exquisitely done.

The bride and groom said their vows around a holy fire lit by their officiating priest surrounded by luxurious fuschia and tangerine fabric from India. The ceremony took place under a Mandapa- the 4-legged structure that represents the home that they are building together. We loved the look and the sentiment.

Tiger Lily added the finishing touches on the Mandapa with extraordinary, brightly colored floral swag of white hydranges, light green amaranthus, fragrant, rich purple stock and a sampling of other little beauties, dahlias. Berries, orange spray roses and marigolds also made a cameo in this stunning ceremony.

The ceremonial necklaces you see Shreya and Brijesh exchanging are woven Varmalas, flown from India especially for the occasion.

As spectacular as the ceremony was, the reception was not to be outdone.

Manzinta branches dripping with crystals reflected the natural light in Founder’s hall and hand-wired blooms added a sophisticated elegance to the centerpieces. Radiant purples saturated the room for a positively regal feel, setting the stage for the couple’s stellar costume change. Jim Smeal created a divine-looking cake that could more accurately be described as a piece of art, elevated by a wooden elephant stand.

Not to mention- Shreya and Biresh’s first portraits as a married couple appear as though they came from the pages of Vogue magazine.

Hey- can you blame them for celebrating in style? Finding the love of your life is a luxurious thing!
