Purple & gold, Pakistani & Indian, modern & totally chic – today’s fresh wedding inspiration mixes and matches cultural traditions and modern design in the prettiest manner.

Designing a day to fit this real couple’s multicultural identities (who got engaged the day prior!), Willow & Ivy Events put together a space that brings Bollywood style into the modern day. Picking trendy decor details (like anemone florals and watercolor stationery) and honoring both the bride and groom’s cultural heritage, this design is as rich as the purple and gold color scheme suggest.

We are particularly taken by the bride’s traditional wedding sari and beauty look. A rich purple chiffon with champagne gold embroidery, her bridal sari is stunning, matched perfectly with a traditional yet ever-so-trendy gold headpiece.

From Willow & Ivy Events

This styled shoot was inspired first and foremost by the two models participating. These two lovebirds actually got engaged the day before the shoot at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum in Seattle, Washington! When dreaming up ideas for this shoot, Alexandra of Willow & Ivy Events chose a color story of rich purples and gold to accent the deep navy of the bride’s Sari. It was important to subtly showcase the Pakistani culture of the bride and the Indian culture of the groom.

Leigh & Mitchell blew it out of the water with their floral designs. The backdrop with hanging foliage was on of our favorite details of the day! It framed the couple and the table perfectly. The bouquet and loose, textured centerpiece featured Anemones, Hellabore, Roses, Ranunculus, Pieres, Geranium Foliage, Rosemary & Spirea. Such an eclectic mix of flowers gave the tablescape a modern vibe.

Instead of a traditional big white wedding dress, we chose to showcase the culture of the bride and groom. They wore traditional attire from their Indian and Pakistani heritage. The bride’s navy blue Sari was the perfect compliment to the deep purple shades of the tablescape. Her headpiece was both silver and gold which tied in to the threading on her entire outfit. The groom’s navy and gold attire looked perfect next to his bride.

For the desserts, we wanted to take a modern approach while incorporating cultural elements. Seatown Sweets took this idea and created a perfect marriage between the two ideas. The two-tiered cake was decorated in modern purple watercolor with gold foil touches while the top tier included a small Mehndi design. That was also showcased on the sugar cookies in varying purple shades, each one with a unique Mehndi design.

For the tablescape we wanted to go for a modern twist on the Bollywood theme. We incorporated traditional elements with the low table and pillow seating and merged them with a modern velvet table runner, ombre place cards, square gold chargers, and loose textured florals. And don’t forget the purple cutlery! It was such a unique element to the table design.
