They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. And I would like to think this is true which then would mean Neha and Nanda have good luck for the entirety of their marriage! I began working with Neha and Nanda a year before their wedding. Both living in California they picked Oregon for their wedding to showcase the beautiful Northwest to all their guests who would be coming in from around the world. We landed on Resort at the Mountain for the wedding weekend and began planning what would unfold to be a truly beautiful wedding!
Neha and Nanda hosted a Friday night Mehndi reception to welcome their guests which included Indian Street food, a photo booth, a henna station, lawn games and Salt & Straw. While the weather didn't exactly cooperate the way we had hopped, when the rain finally stopped the clouds and freshness it left behind made for a gorgeous evening.
On Saturday Neha and Nanda celebrated their marriage with a traditional southern Indian ceremony. During the ceremony guests enjoyed fresh huckleberry lemonade and Masala Pop, popcorn. The ceremony concluded with Nanda's classmates from the Naval Academy sending them off with a saber exit "The right of passage is a kiss". Such a fun ending to the ceremony.
After a break during the day guests were treated to a full reception in the Resort at the Mountain's Ballroom transformed by Royce's Prop Shop and Zest Floral. The couple, their family and friends ended up dancing the night away. It was pure bliss for everyone and to top it all off - a sparkler exit. Congrats to these two truly amazing people!
