Glittering in Gold | Shubho & Renuka

Renuka & Shubho were the 1st of our triple wedding weekend to be married on Friday, May 31st and what a beautiful Hindu ceremony they had. Nothing compares to the brightness of colors in an Indian wedding.  The bright reds and shimmering gold colors just make an amazing backdrop.


For their ceremony, Shubho & Renuka had cards made up so guests could follow along with what was happening during their Hindu ceremony.  I highly recommend doing this since the entire ceremony was not in English and for those not familiar with the Hindu traditions, they were great!  Renuka and Shubho were so thankful that the approaching rain storm held off long enough for them to complete their ceremony along with having some time for photos in the vineyard.

Renuka was a bride after my heart.  She didn’t have just one outfit, but three!  She was gracious enough to stop, just after changing, to allow me to snap a quick photo.  Personally, her third was my favorite but she looked amazing in all of them.

I loved all the details to this wedding.  Obviously, the ceremony was full of traditions, but I really liked how at each table setting she had the menu tucked into the napkin with a party favor on top.  What a lovely surprise for each guest to welcome them as they made their way to their seat. The signs Renuka & Shubho had I also liked a lot. The wood welcome signs are very popular this year with our couples!  And let’s not forget about their wedding cake! Maliha Creations never disappoints visually or with flavor when it comes to her cakes. Highly recommend!!!
