JEN + ASHOK {by kate & kristie}

Jen and Ashok might be the nicest clients on the planet.  ever.  I have never had a client be more concerned with my well being throughout the day making sure I had food and telling me to sit down and take a break..  We were not only fed a beautiful meal at the Chase, but were encouraged to invite our spouses or significant others up to enjoy it as well!  Maybe they are natural nurturers & it is their inner doctors coming out  :)  SO this is a long blog because it’s two-two-two ceremonies in one!  Plus there are so many details and a ceremony structure flip by Exclusive events and Shelli Alred at Alred Wedding Consultants that was beyond anything I have seen …AND  two gorgeous pairs of shoes… can’t leave out those!

See, hi Jimmy Choo!  The Indian ceremony was up first!







After much ado, the head scarf is in place!

Meanwhile…. in other parts of the Chase…












See?!  what did I say about the awesomeness of the ceremony structure??!?


Beautiful golden programs by M Haley Design & florals by Artistry



Jen & her trusty coconut


here comes the bride… take one!



















okay, this was DEFINITELY the most rice I have ever seen dumped on anyone…. the third one down you can’t even see Jen’s face!!






cocktail hour & time to flip that room!  I love the tiny army of elephants holding the place cards.

and the topiary elephant we affectionately called “Bucky” (why, I do not know)


there was a caricature artist roving the scene

AND a palm reader…. do not under any circumstances take an apple from this woman if you are snow white.

BAM– Hi Kate Spade.  These shoes are SO cute.




a precious few moments on the terrace before ceremony number two…

wowza… now that’s an orchid.


Ceremony two setting… orchids and crystals and floating candles and a blue glow


Beautiful arrangements by Artistry Florist flanked the stage


here come the bride… take two!









married… again!

the reception room stayed with the blue theme and had more gorgeous centerpieces by Randy at Artistry and cool die cut menus by M. Haley Design



the favors are tiny first aid kits… how appropriate!

light up table numbers!




the head table

the Cakery did a great job with the henna-like piping work!






another sweet gesture by the bride and groom… they had THREE guests at the wedding celebrating their birthdays & had a little cake delivered for each


let the dancing commence!




a late night treat for everyone

and a yummy coffee and dessert bar





the DJ is a friend of the couple and one of the better DJs  I have heard to date!


Thanks for letting us in on the fun!  Congratulations, with love, kate & kristie
