Travel Themed Bay Area Indian Fusion Wedding {California}

2017 Apr 27 - by Preeti
Nisha and her husband are just adorable! We're just absolutely floor by this sweet and fun loving couple. After more than four years of long distance dating (and traveling), they tied the knot in sunny San Francisco, California.

With travel representing a major part of their relationship, their wedding featured an airplane cake, airplane bottle openers, tickets, and globes. Bright and happy yellow flowers mixed with white and black created an elegant yet festive reception.

Their Hindu wedding was brought together by a slew of BF Red Book preferred vendors including Arrowwood Photography, dRoyal Engagements, Mario and Fran Videography, MSutra Bride, and Prime Party Rentals. And what a smashing California Indian wedding they created.

Without further ado, let's hear Nisha's story!

The scarf above my head during the ceremony was my maternal grandmother's, as was the three strand necklace that I wore. The rest of the clothing was custom made for our wedding and reception.

Our theme was travel because we dated long distance for four years, during which we had a "destination relationship" where we would meet in a new city every month. While that chapter in our relationship is over, our love for travel will persist in our marriage as well.

Balancing between what we wanted to do, and what we felt like we should do was challenging. We wanted to have a really unique wedding that was true to us as individuals and not another Indian wedding.

Our centerpieces were a combination of travel items and globes we collected throughout the year and were paired with floral arrangements. We also hand designed our invitations & stationary to match the theme.

The ceremony was my favorite part of the wedding - felt great to live in the moment.

Only 75% of what you plan will work out the way you envision it would... and that is 100% okay in the long run!
