Erin and Vasanth's November wedding was a lovely blend of tradition (including the groom's Indian heritage in the ceremony) and understated modern decor! During the ceremony, they exchanged Varmala, a pair of floral garlands that they placed around each other's necks. It symbolizes happiness, enthusiasm, aspiration, zeal and beauty, all held together by a thread to secure them. As they placed them on one another, the couple repeated, “Just as this thread never leaves the company of these flowers, I too will always be with you.” Erin is very close with her family, and she wanted to be married at her childhood home in Phoenix, a beautiful estate in the heart of the city. Hundreds of peach garden roses seemed to float in mid-air as they hung from strands in every tree on the property. Each dark wooden table boasted colorful peach and orange blooms in clear glass vessels, and guests feasted on different meal options from four stations, later dancing the night away to a live band. Dan & Erin PhotoCinema captured their fabulous wedding celebration!
