Rupali and Shalin's wedding coordinator at Electric Karma
, faced the challenge of holding the cocktail party inside the reception ballroom at the Stafford Centre
. The couple also wanted to completely transform the event space, as they had attended many events in the same venue prior to their wedding."We created a beautiful cocktail area around the perimeter of the dance floor by bringing in lounge furniture and high cocktail tables all in a very contemporary design to go with the look. During cocktails, the room was bathed in lavender lighting and a slide show of the couple played in the background."
The couple chose a cool, modern color palette of lime green and white, with purple lighting. The tables were dressed with three variations of centerpieces and green linens."Shalin and Rupali did not want to go overboard with floral and girly touches, but instead wanted to keep it masculine and modern. The tall centerpieces and unique layout really utilized maximum seating in the room and gave enough way for the incredible view of the endless white dance floor.""There was a delightfully eclectic mix of Indian, Italian, and American cuisine throughout the night, as well as Key lime & apple cotton candy martinis. Trays carrying an item called "dragon puffs" were passed out. Bite into one of the macaroon like desserts and it released a cloud of smoke. Shaolin martial artists took over center stage and wowed the guests with impressive skill. The food, drinks, and dancing never stopped. It was extraordinary!!!"
A huge thank you to the groom's sister, Nirali, for submitting this wedding and all the details from Rupali and Shalin's big day. Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
