This was such a magical, colorful, beautiful day to be a part of! I always love a cultural ceremony, and in this case, I got to see two. Jedel & Salil chose to hold their dual celebration at the gorgeous Barn Kestrel in West Linn. Dylan Howell was on hand throughout the entire day to capture every exciting moment.
After being pampered by the talented artists at Blossom & Beauty, Jedel and the girls headed over to prepare for the Hindu ceremony. The beginning of these elaborate rituals is a Baraat, where the groom is escorted by his entire family to present himself to the bride’s family. We had Pedicabs on hand to bring the groom down in style. We then moved our way into the gorgeous tent provided by Peter Corvallis, for the catholic ceremony. The bride and her bridesmaids carried stunning bouquets created by New Seasons Market, who also provided the flowers for the entire event. The couple were married by Father Kevin Yell, under a beautiful mandap set by Bowerbird Events.
Once the ceremonies were finished, guests transitioned into the barn for cocktails provided by Heart & Honey. Vibrant Table Catering was busy to transform the tent into a beautiful reception space for dinner, provided by Swagat. After an amazing series of toasts, guests headed back into the barn. They were treated to an amazing coconut/cardamom cake made by Papa Haydn. Then, the party was ready to start! Precious Byrd came up from Bend, OR. to treat guests to a an evening filled with energetic dancing. This couple was so amazing to get to know. They have so much love for one another and the families that they’ve both gained. Jedel and Salil, I wish you nothing but a lifetime of happiness together!
