Her "American Aladdin" | Sasha & Russell

Sasha and Russell were married on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at Keswick Vineyards in front of the vineyard with the mountains as their backdrop.  Sasha’s older sister acted as their officiant.  Sasha is a beautiful bride that had 3 different dresses to wear for her wedding day.  She started with a beautiful traditional gold Indian dress for the ceremony.  After the ceremony and some photos, she and Russell did a quick change.  She now was wearing a gorgeous red sarong while Russell changed out of his tuxedo jacket to a traditional Indian shirt.  It was so cute hearing Sasha call Russell her “American Aladin” while he was in that attire.  And then, after dinner, one more quick change and Russell was back into his tuxedo jacket while Sasha appeared in this very dark blue evening dress with pink embellishments on it.  She looked stunning!  I can see why Sasha couldn’t decide on just one dress and went with all three.

Besides Sasha’s amazing dresses their food choices were the best!  Eric Stamer Catering provided a traditional buffet line which included a beef carving station at the end but also had a pasta station.  Guess could pick from several pasta sauces and toppings and have it cooked right there in front of them.  I couldn’t pass on trying this one out and went with a combination of alfredo sauce and pesto sauce and a bit of that beef tenderloin.  That was some of the best catering food I have tasted!  The beef was so tender that it seemed to melt in your mouth.  I can see why I saw so many guests going back for seconds and thirds!

And finally, the décor of the tent was simply elegant.  This couple chose to have 3 chandeliers hanging in the tent making sure to have one over the dance floor.  They also chose to switch out the gels in the up lighting to a blue color versus our standard gold/bronze gel.  As you can see from my photos, this inexpensive change to the lighting totally changes the look of the tent.
