You’ve seen their engagement session, you’ve seen their CineMonday and today we’re back to debut their gorgeous wedding day pictures by Lisa Vogl-Hamid Photography. Mel and John were married in a multicultural church ceremony at Sacred Heart Catholic Church followed by a tented reception at The Vault.

Mel looked absolutely radiant in her white and silver draped sari, matching silver pumps and jewelry. I love that she found a way of blending the traditional Indian attire with a more western approach. Her bridesmaids looked equally as beautiful in their pink colored saris.

Make sure to pop on over to the photo gallery to see all of the images from today!

The reception color scheme was so elegant. The white and pink linens and décor coupled with the silky white drapings from the tent are just so beautiful. I also love the prints on the tablecloths and how they were mimicked using the uplighting on the walls.

Lisa Vogl-Hamid Photography did such a wonderful job capturing all of the details from the wedding. From the stunning panoramic shots at the church down to the portrait session, each shot is meticulously planned out and executed!

My girlfriend just got back from Paris and told me that metallics are ALL over the place. I’ve also been seeing a lot of buzz around braids. It was no surprise that these two trends were going to be huge, when I stumbled across these Badgley Mischka shoes. [Side note: I'm sure if you have ever gone shopping for evening shoes, you've come across Badgley Mischka, and like me you've wondered how to actually pronounce the designer's name. Here's how: badge-lee meesh-ka.] I love the simplicity of these open-toe sandals. The mesh braiding adds a nice flair to the dark grey or soft gold metallic upper. Slightly higher than 3”, these shoes are a perfect staple– and on sale– for the trendy bride!

I am so excited to share today’s CineMonday with you mostly because we have been following this couple’s journey from start to finish, and their wedding is beyond anything I could have imagined. Bansi and Edward, whom you might remember from their Tiffany’s themed engagement party or their Mr. and Mrs. Smith Save the Date announcement decided to do the most romantic thing of all time and run away to St. Lucia for a private wedding ceremony!

Pacific Pictures did such a great job documenting the couple’s private ceremony. From capturing the breath taking scenery, the touching words by the officiant (which were scripted by Pacific Pictures!) and the romance of the whole day, it truly was beautiful. Stay tuned – after the video Bansi shares how the intimate ceremony came to be.

Must See Moments:

  • The beauty that is St. Lucia
  • The couple basking in paradise
  • The ceremony (have you seen a more perfect one?)
  • Edward leaving his bride her flowers and letter
  • The couple reciting their vows
  • Their boat ride
  • Bansi and Edward running freely on the beach and jumping into the water

Bansi shares:

“We started wedding planning and soon became overwhelmed with all the intricacies of planning a large Indian wedding.  I have always wanted a very romantic and private ceremony so that my wedding day would be one of the most romantic moments of my life.  Edward & I decided that in lieu of a large wedding and reception, we would do a private ceremony with a reception later on.  We initially wanted our immediate family to come with us. But Edward’s father has not been well and would not have been able to attend. So we thought it would be best if we did not go along with our plans.

Since we had already planned a vacation to St Lucia, Edward decided to surprise me with my lifelong dream of a romantic private ceremony.  He asked Kevin and Susmita to help him make this dream come true!  With Kevin and Susmita’s help, all of it was captured so our friends and family could share our wonderful experience. It will now be something that we can share with our kids one day.”
