A few weeks ago I worked on a colorful wedding in Puerto Rico, but the traditions and decor conjured traditional Indian culture. The bride and groom enlisted the help of wedding planner Shetal Vyas, who specializes in Indian weddings; Shetal brought me in to ensure the party also had a more contemporary aesthetic. Today I'm sharing some of the more traditional details as these served as the inspiration for my design. After all, with colors like that it's hard not to be inspired!
Are you planning a destination wedding or a wedding infused with specific cultural elements or traditions? I would love to know if you have any comments or questions!

I hope to share some of my design details from this event soon! In the meantime, please enjoy these moments of inspiration from the wedding.
