We’re heading out to Mississippi for a 4 day multicultural wedding blowout by the talented Danny K Photography. Setu and Zach kicked off their wedding celebrations with a Mehndi & Grashanti at Setu’s parents, house followed by a Garba the next night.

Armed with a killer smile, Setu wore a beautiful bright red and blue lengha while Zach matched his bride-to-be in a red printed kurta pajama and turban. I love the vintage looking yellow car the couple used as a prop and later as a mode of transportation. It brings such a rustic look to their outdoor portraits!

To catch all of the images from today make sure to visit our photo gallery!

These next few shots Danny K Photography took are priceless. He captured the intimacy of Setu and Zach’s fusion outdoor wedding seamlessly and the background looked breathtaking. I particularly love this image below with Setu’s nephews carrying a sign that said “Here comes Setu Masi”- adorable! Make sure you also check out the personalized chair decorations Setu and Zachary rocked at their wedding reception!

You ever hear that commercial that sings “the touch, the feel, the color- the fabric of our lives?” Well that is exactly how I feel about tulle! Maybe it’s because every single “big” moment in my life has been accompanied by tulle- my signature baby portrait, dance recitals, sweet 16, prom, college formals and finally my wedding, or maybe just because once you slip something on that has tulle there is no way you won’t feel like a princess, but whatever it is I love it!

Unfortunately I can’t really think of too many more occasions where I will be able to get away with wearing big poofy tulle attire but I did find some gorgeous wedding shoes that can be up-cycled to post wedding formal shoe wear. These babies have just the right amount of tulle on them that even brides who aren’t gaga for the poof can get behind them!
