Yesterday we debuted part one of Sheena and Sameer's magical Indian wedding
and today we are back with the conclusion! When we last left you, Sheena and Sameer were wearing their custom wedding ceremony attire. For the reception, Sheena wore an absolutely stunning asymmetrical white wedding gown with ornate Indian detailing. I have really never seen an Indian bride in something quite like this before. Sheena and her parents did a phenomenal job designing an outfit that married both her Indian heritage and western upbringing perfectly! Sameer opted for a classic black tuxedo and looked dashing.
For their reception décor, Sheena and Sameer
went with a peacock theme. The room was filled with bright turquoise table linens, uplighting, peacock inspired chair skirts, and even a turquoise elevated stage in the middle of the room for their immediate family. For contrast, the couple had tall and short floral centerpieces with crystals accessorizing the tables. To top off the peacock theme, Sameer and Sheena had a custom cake made with a beautiful peacock perched on top of four tiers! To add some more unique touches, the couple had luggage tags made as escort cards to pay homage to all of their guests who came in from out of town, and oreo truffles with a “Life is Sweet” flag and a sugar rimmed champagne glass at each place setting courtesy of Funky's Catering
"We wanted our dinner to be a formal sit down with a twist. Guest entered the ballroom and all they saw were tables with over the top centerpieces and chairs with covers that mimicked peacock feathers (our theme). When guests walked into the reception for dinner, there was no dance floor or even room to dance. Our father/daughter dance, mother/son dance, and first dance were all done to the side of the head table. A few people asked us where we were going to dance and I told them right next to the head table. Dinner was a formal sit down affair but served Russian style for the entrees and Family style for all of the side dishes. Each table had a variety of condiments so guests could customize the spiciness of each dish."
Wondering where the dance floor is? Stay tuned as Sheena and Sameer
reveal a huge surprise for their guests!
