Yay, it’s so rad to be discovered by BHLDN + invited to their SF party. BHLDN has beautiful wedding dresses, and I’ve been a long time fan of Anthropologie’s knick knacks, books & overall decor. I’m looking forward to this party & hanging out with some local vendor friends.
Friday / January 23 / 4-7.
Theresa & Anupam’s wedding was a mix of their Western and Indian cultures. It was at the Los Altos History Museum, on a super warm sunny day in the peninsula. SF never gets that HOT, so it was a nice change. To keep true to Indian traditions, they had to get approval from the Los Altos City Council to have a horse during the Baraat. And a Baraat they had! The drummers were amazing. If you’ve ever been to a Baraat, you know the drummers give the crowd their energetic beat. And it helps to have good guy friends, who love to dance too.
Anupam road a white mare named Dora with his ring bearer. This old tradition is not only social and fun, it’s also romantic. Dora the horse is with Vintage Carriage Company & she loves people and music. It was a very eventful & festive two days. The Mercury newscame to cover the baraat. An there was even an indian styled tandem bike!
Theresa & Anupam honeymooned in Iceland. It seems to be a popular honeymoon spot this year. Another couple, Sean & Mariah, also honeymooned in Iceland. They rented a camper van and did the Ring Road. It sounds like a quest you go on related to marriage, haha. It’s the main road that runs around the island and connects most of the inhabited parts of the country. Check out Sean’s Iceland photos from their trip, they’re gorgeous!
The bay area is such a small place. I grew up in Belmont, my grandma worked as a secretary in the science department at Stanford. I know and love the rolling hills of 280. But it still felt like such a random coincident when I ran into Theresa & Anupam at their friend Cal’s wedding in woodside, while helping out my catering friend Chef Stephanie. In a few weeks I hope to share a shoot I worked on with Steph at one of my favorite venues.
This was Theresa & Anupam’s Mehndi party in the Los Altos hills. I loved the Indian musician, She was fantastic and got everyone dancing. I joined in the festivities and had Mehendi done on my wrists, so that I could still use my hands, ha. The food was authentic & very tasty. The potted plants outside the tent were a gift, what a great idea!
