Featured Vintage Engagement: South Asian Bride Blog

This styled engagement shoot brings together a worldly look we think you’ll be inspired by!  With gorgeous photographs from Braja Mandala Wedding Photography, and the details brought together by Wedding Elegance by Nahid, we’re loving the fusion of styles!  From Indian inspired lanterns strewn from an iron arch, and upholstered pillows with piping, the colors are fun and bright!
This engagement shoot was featured on South Asian Bride Blog, a wonderful resource for inspiration, daily posts and trend alerts.
What a beautiful setting in the Sand Dunes of Southern California!
A mismatched collection of iron lanterns turns a common arch into a great focal piece.
Mixing vintage china with rich metallic elements and tropical-feeling succulents makes this look sophisticated.  Green and purple make for a rich color combination that ties it all together.  Jennifer Cole Florals created all of the beautiful floral arrangements which took the design to a new level!
This fun ottoman seating arrangement adds in a great pattern and provides unique seating.
In an indoor setting, lanterns, embroidered pillows and colored glassware make for the perfect combination to this weathered table.  Ottoman-style stools are gathered around the table, showing off the centerpieces!
This layered look draws you into the ambience of the table design.  A rustic weathered table is adorned with vintage glassware, colored glassware, mercury glass, botanical elements such as grape wood, and tropical flowers.
Each place setting was completed with a dragonfly napkin ring, three styles of goblets for drinks and a menu.
Desserts are displayed on a vintage white hutch.  Varying heights of treats adds interest to this table.
Small details and interesting displays of desserts make for an interactive and fun display that ties back into your table decor and overall look.  What do you think?  Are you loving this look?
