This past October, we worked with Anuja and Rob on their modern Indian microwedding in Georgetown. They originally planned for a wedding in May 2021, but realized that with the pandemic, there’s no time like the present.
The setting was their lovely backyard in Georgetown. Despite the cold rainy morning, you could feel the warmth and love in their house, as both families worked together to create the perfect backdrop for both of their ceremonies. This even included a homemade tent over the backyard, which Rob’s dad built out of tarp the night before when the weather forecast quickly changed.
Anuja’s inspiration was a colorful and fun take on a traditional Hindu wedding, which was embraced in every floral design right down to the flower collar for their dog — Mowgli.
Using heirloom carnations, a flower traditionally used in Hindu ceremonies, we created wedding garlands for both Anuja and Rob. For the mandap, we draped long, beautiful garlands around a birch canopy. In addition, Anuja’s path to the mandap was adorned with flower petals, and the ledge behind the canopy was lined with bud vases filled with bright marigolds, roses, and burgundy mums.
Anuja’s very talented hair stylist, Anna Fazio, decorated her hair with white and peach spray roses.
Her whimsical bridal bouquet was filled with jewel toned flowers — lavender roses, hot pink roses, purple anemones, and pops of coral.
While it was an intimate ceremony, the couple worked with PartyStreamers to livestream their wedding to friends and family across the world. They also planned a civil ceremony in the afternoon. Officially married and in line with the times, they had a reception for two with takeout pizza.
