How does a passion for soccer, flowers in tin cans and henna candles come together? Sharlene and Nihar show us how in their fusion wedding reception! We all know how much I adore outdoor weddings, and this is one wedding where I truly feel all the details strongly reflected the couple. Sharlene took a DIY, eco-friendly approach by using tin cans and brown paper bags. She had her second and third grade students decorate the covers for the cans that would hold colorful bouquets of flowers from Lakshmi's Floral Design
, bringing a whimsical and colorful feel to Nestldown
Originally from New York
, the couple had the following tips when planning a destination wedding (in their case, a Northern California
wedding): "Pick great vendors! Divide and conquer with your fiance. Keep a to-do list and prioritize. Visit your destination a couple of times. Take into consideration the travel time, hotel location, wedding location. Most importantly: Don't sweat the small stuff and remember if you have enough food, music and drinks, everyone will be happy!"
Sounds like the best advice to me!
