A Fairy Tale Wedding for Bindi & Darren

October 26th, 2018

It's Friday! And we have an exquisite wedding to share. We apologize as we have not been posting as frequent. Moving forward, look out for our bi-weekly blog posts. We are excited to be back!

We had met Bindi about four years ago when we planned her sister's wedding. Her bubbly, vivacious and easy going personality was very noticeable and made her sister's wedding all the more joyful. I got a call from Bindi about eight months ago when she gave me the great news of her engagement and that she wanted us to plan her own wedding. It is always very exciting to plan a wedding of a family member where you have developed a history and needless to say we were over joyed.

We met Bindi and her fiancΓ© Darren for our first design walk through at Padua. It was an instant connection with Darren. It was apparent that Bindi had chosen him as her life partner as they both possess a calm demeanor. Their vision was to create a fairy tale wedding in soft colors and let lighting do the magic. We decided to hold the Hindu Wedding in the morning at the front courtyard of the venue and do the flip for evening reception.

The ballroom was dedicated for after party which worked great. The setting was magical amidst mature olive trees and weather cooperated fully. After the Hindu Ceremony, guests enjoyed a quick lunch and headed to the church for Christian Ceremony.

Front courtyard of Padua was now reset for dinner reception and the place looked straight out of fairy tale. Couple made their entrance and went straight into first dance.

Guests and families all had a great time. The transition from dinner to after party was a lot of fun when the couple lead their guests on a conga line. After party was a smashing success with dance floor and bar packed at all times.

Throughout the night we had guests approaching and thanking us. We wish Bindi and Darren a blissful married life.

Below is the testimonial from the bride which arrived early next morning...

"Hi Nikki!!! We are still in awe of last night and can’t believe it’s over. We are so grateful of the amazing vision you had and your ability to execute it with such ease. You, Madiha and Salima never looked stressed at any point yesterday, and it really helped me relax and enjoy the whole day. Darren and I want to thank you & your team again from the bottom of our hearts! We are getting so many kind words regarding the wedding and it would not have been possible without you."

Special thank you to all our partners!
