Destination Wedding Planners Congress 2018

April 20th, 2018

We had the distinct privilege of being invited to speak at 5th Destination Wedding Planners Congress in Los Cabos, Mexico. The Congress was conducted in partnership with the Los Cabos Tourism Board and The Mexico Tourism Board and as always did not disappoint. The DWP Congress saw over 600 attendees from 70 countries and it was an honor and humbling to share this global platform with the esteemed speakers.

As soon as we landed, we were greeted by mariachi band and Mexican dancers. We were then whisked away to a private area which was set up by DWP to welcome attendees. Refreshments and snacks were offered and we were then driven to the resort in a town car. Cabo del Azul is a stunning resort and after we were met by the GM of the property, we were escorted to our penthouse suite. This was another highlight of the trip. The 3,000 sq feet suite is impeccably furnished by Mexican artisan resort employs 70 carpenters whose job is to create all furniture pieces and wood work and it is by far the finest I have seen.

Here is a peek at our penthouse!

We had a couple of hours before the opening cocktail party which was a 30 minute drive from the resort and decided to chill and take it easy. Opening party was at a golf course and it was nice to see old friends and make new ones.

Second day was the start of conference and as always check in was seamless. We got to listen to the most dynamic leaders in the industry and the scheduled meetings with the suppliers were extremely beneficial. Decadent lunch, and plenty of snacks hot coffee and tea were served all day.

Evening event was the opening gala which was again off site in a canyon. Vendors had gone all out from lighting, rentals, entertainment, flowers etc and a fabulous night was enjoyed by all.

Next day the conference started again by a dynamic speaker and afternoon was devoted to work shops and break out sessions. To our surprise, our session was so popular that the organizers ended up moving us back to the convention center.

After our talk, we rushed back to the hotel to get ready for the farewell party which was again at an off site location at Acre. What fun we had at this boho chic event. From the venue to food, entertainment, ambiance and everything else it was truly a unique and fun experience.

Like all good things must come to an end, such was the case with this night. We reluctantly said good buy to our old and new friends and boarded the plane next morning to head back to LA.

Can’t wait for DWP to announce the next location for the 6th Congress!!!!

Behind The Bride’s Inspiration: London WeHo Rooftop Ceremony & Reception

April 6th, 2018

Over the years, we have helped a lot of couples with interfaith weddings and such was the case with Nishita and Mike. They are both young professionals and wanted their ceremony to be along the traditional lines of festive colors and ambiance seen in Indian Weddings They also wanted to provide a different experience to their guests at the reception and wanted the feel and colors to be elegant and time less and for that reason the color palette chosen was cream and blush.

London Hotel rooftop was the site for our ceremony which was embellished and decorated with bride's favorite colors. Our beautiful bride walked down the aisle wearing a stunning lehnga in ( don't remember the exact colors but you can fill that when you see the photo ) and carrying a bouquet that matched her wedding attire and was a perfect compliment. It is very important to keep the cohesive look to ensure that the wedding attire and the bouquet the bride is carrying matches flawlessly. For this reason a lot of our Indian brides carry two different bouquets, one for the ceremony and one for reception. This bride was also very keen on preserving her wedding bouquet. Hidden Garden did a stunning job with adding the perfect amount of bling and choice of flowers.
