Sasha and Eric | Nikah Ceremony

August 27th, 2013

This was the Muslim Nikah Ceremony, where the marriage certificate is signed by the bride and groom in front of 2 witnesses. It is usually conducted by a pious person of the community, called an imam. Exquisite-Events-Evening-Ceremony-1

Exquisite-Events-Evening-Ceremony-4We used whites and creams with lots of candles and accented with color in the lighting. It was a beauiful, simple occasion before the Sangeet the next day which was full of color!

Sasha and Eric | Sangeet Ceremony

August 23rd, 2013

Sasha and Eric's Sangheet Ceremony was full of rich, vibrant reds and oranges. The term Sangeet is Sanskrit, which when translated into English literally means as sung together. The Sangeet ceremony takes place two or three days before the wedding, and is a Punjabi(Indian/Pakistani) ceremony. In the old days, the Sangeet was reserved for women only, but these days many couples are deciding to have a Sangeet that includes both women and men.

Exquisite-Events-Sangheet-1The Sangeet is a time for celebrating, singing, dancing and joking. It can include some good-natured ribbing of the couple’s soon-to-be in-laws and it’s also a perfect time for wedding guests to meet and get to know each other. The bridal and grooms party will each learn songs and dances to perform. Traditional Indian instruments, like a dholki (a two-sided drum), are often used in the ceremony as well. After all the singing and dancing is finished, guests enjoy beautiful hor d’oeuvres and sweet dishes.

The Ballroom Transformation

August 2nd, 2013

Thank you Hidden Garden Flowers for sharing these pictures of the Regent Beverly Wilshire Ballroom transformation. So cool!

Regent Beverly Wilshire Transformation

There is nothing like walking into a ballroom and seeing the finished product - a grand ballroom set with lighting, flowers, custom linens, specialty chairs.  Sometimes it's even hard to imagine the room without any of the decor items in place.  The transformation is unbelievable.  We took a few images along the way of our wedding this weekend with Exquisite Events to give you a 'behind the scenes' view of the transformation of the ballroom at the Regent Beverly Wilshire.  More to come! Xo, Trisha

  • #Repost @archdigest - #JacquesArpels was inspired by the clover shapes in architecture inspiring him to design his famous Alhambra collection, which is also our inspiration for one of our upcoming events! #inspirationeverywhere #designinspiration #eventdesign #alhambra #moorisharchitecture #vancleefarpels ・・・
Half a century ago, inspired by the decorative patterns Jacques Arpels observed on his travels, @vancleefarpels launched Alhambra—a clover-shaped gold medallion resembling a Moorish quatrefoil. “As an architectural element, it appears in almost every culture,” says Van Cleef & Arpels’s current president and CEO, Nicolas Bos. “In jewelry, it’s just as adaptable.” Today the French luxury brand remains captivated by the motif, having reimagined it in myriad styles and stones. This past May, to mark the Alhambra collection’s 50th anniversary, Van Cleef launched nine new pieces with a party at the 16th-century El Badi Palace in Marrakech. While celebrating with them, AD found a few more not-to-miss sights in Marrakech, including the  14th-century Islamic college Ben Youssef Madrasa pictured here.
