COVID definitely has been putting a damper on things for two years now, but it did not stop this couples wedding from being bold, bright, and beautiful! After rescheduling and dealing with COVID precautions, Preeya and Mike finally got to celebrate at Merchants Hall last October in Downtown Historic Charleston. With the bride being Indian and the groom Armenian, this wedding featured a fun and colorful blending of heritage and culture, captured perfectly by Anne Rhett Photography.
When a bride tells you she is not afraid of color, you take the opportunity and run with it! With a color palette filled of oranges and pinks, the day was bound to be filled with brightness. It was extremely important to make sure the color palette stayed true to how joyous the day was, and Nuage Designs’s and La Tavola’s flawless crafted linens plus Stephanie Gibbs Events' beautiful floral arrangements made sure that was possible.
For Preeya, finding ways to honor her culture was a must-have. The nod to her Indian heritage can be found in all the little details. Shannon, here at Hill & Co. Creative, explained “When Preeya and I began planning the details of her wedding day it was important to incorporate ties to her Indian heritage. For centuries, the elephant has been regarded as a sacred creature in Indian culture and it is regarded as a well-known cultural symbol for them. We wanted to incorporate them into the design for this reason.”
With makeup and hair chosen perfectly to complement the bright hues of the day, there is no denying that Preeya and her bridal party looked stunning all thanks to the help of Lashes and Lace!
In order to combat COVID restrictions, the wedding plans changed from a large outdoor reception to an only close friends and family indoor event. With the help of Ooh Events and Snyder Events rentals, we were able to secure everything necessary to create the perfect indoor ceremony and reception, we even managed to build a mandap inside! In the end, everything came together perfectly for Preeya and Mike.
