This couple approached us in January to plan their sangeet and wedding in Northern California. This was going to be a destination wedding as the majority of the guests were coming from San Diego and other places. The couple is very low key and wanted a colorful sangeet, but a very simple barn wedding. Nikki got very excited at the prospect of a barn wedding since Exquisite Events had never done one. Nikki also felt very connected to the couple because of their simple and loving nature. Since their guest count grew from 100 to over 200 for both events, a restaurant buy out (which was the original idea) in Cambria was not going to work. Nikki reached out to various hotels and venues and finally Cambria Pines Lodge was selected for their sangeet. The lodge is very charming and rustic and is surrounded by beautiful trees. The weather in this town is mild because it is of close proximity to the beach. The Peacock Room was booked for this event and since the couple was looking for a traditional ambiance, we decided to use colors that had never been used in our previous events. The room was draped in lime green with red valances along with a lime green dance floor.
Saffron yellow and orange colors were incorporated in tents, furniture, linens and flowers.
The existing chandeliers were swagged with orange and yellow flowers.
Beautiful lighting completed the magical look and feel of the event.
The bride and groom walked into the room and were beyond pleased with the design and colors and enjoyed the night along with their guests.
There was a lot of dancing as well as Garba since the groom is Gujrati.
The venue did an amazing job with food stations and passed appetizers. Mehndi artists kept the ladies busy with mehndi application and the DJ spun the most amazing tunes, keeping the crowd on their feet until the wee hours of the morning. The event ended on a high note.
Have an Exquisite day and we will see you next Wednesday for all the details of their wedding at Cayucos Creek Barn in Cayucos!
