Last December we had the pleasure coordinating a wedding for a happy couple named Molly & Steven, and thank goodness we did! That is where we were introduced to Molly’s brother, Patrick, and his fiance, Amrita. Right after the holidays, we met with them to go over their summer wedding in July. Going from a holiday-themed winter wedding to a hot July outdoor wedding was a fun switch and it showed how different their two weddings were going to be.
Amrita & Patrick’s wedding at the National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts & Culture (otherwise known as NMPRAC) was our most upbeat and bright multicultural wedding of the summer! Their vibrant colors, changing of traditional Indian to traditional Western attire, and mix of Indian and Italian cuisine brought together the best of both their worlds.
As guests began to arrive, mother nature unexpectedly decided to pour down on our outdoor ceremony. There was no rain in the forecast and skies were as clear as could be. But when it started getting dark after we had just set up the entire ceremony, with the help of our amazing team of vendors, we quickly flipped the reception tent into our new ceremony space. The rain didn’t stop this party! All starting with the adorable ring bearer driving in a flashy [plastic] car.
After some sincere vows, cocktails with friends, and transitioning over to the reception, the remainder of the evening consisted of a set from a Dohl player (traditional shoulder drum), choreographed dances from family & friends, “chance the snapper” buttons (all my Chicagoans remember the alligator on the loose this June?!), and a whole lot of love.
