When two cultures collide, you’re sure to get a beautiful combination of traditions and typically a little bit of non-traditional details that enable a celebration that satisfies both the bride and groom. This California wedding day was the perfect mix of both! The groom, being Indian, wanted a ceremony that would reflect his colorful culture and traditions, while the bride wanted a traditional ceremony officiated by her brother. We love that they chose to celebrate with 2 ceremonies (and 2 cocktail hours!), and we are thrilled to show you all of the details of their beautiful wedding day!
Carren and Ninad celebrated with a full days worth of events in Placentia, California at the The Richard Nixon Library. The reception itself was a formal affair inside a replica of the State Room in the White House, full of ivory and gold details, while the ceremonies both took place outside on the grassy lawn. The vibrant color palette of the Indian ceremony was transformed into a palette of navy blue, mustard yellow, and soft pink and ivory florals.
There were so many elements that made this day special with the two ceremonies, traditional elements, modern details, and incredible design, and CCL Weddings pulled it all together flawlessly! We cannot say enough about how this day came together, and it’s best that you see the beauty that Christine Farah Photography captured throughout the day!
One of our favorite details during the second ceremony was the custom C+N vase where the bride and groom poured blue and yellow liquid to combine into green in a heart at the bottom. Such a fun and modern twist on the unity ceremony, and we love that the incorporated elements of their wedding design that made this element more personalized to their day.
