What a way to start off the 2018 wedding season with an intimate garden party wedding! This wedding was so lovely and I still can’t believe these Maeva and Arvind put everything for their wedding together in just a few months. The garden they were married in was perfectly in bloom for these two and even though there was a chance of rain, the storm passed and there were perfectly blue skies and sunshine to celebrate their big day.
They had their ceremony at the home of a close friend in their front yard garden. Their hostess even put together all of their florals and Maeva’s wedding bouquet. The purple sweet pea flowers were absolutely stunning in Maeva’s bouquet and in her hair. She went with a etherial and delicate look with a pearl beaded dress from BHLDN and I am obsessed with her look! So chic! Arvind also had a special suit for the wedding with a toucan tie!
The ceremony was short and sweet on the front porch surrounded by flowers and their friends and family. Immediately after their ceremony, they popped champagne bottles open and cut their cake and enjoyed a lovely cocktail hour in the warm sunshine.
For their romantic formals, we went to Gamble Garden in Palo Alto. These gardens are amazing and they have so many spots for photo moments- no surprise that this place was packed with other photographers and high school seniors posing for their prom photos. Maeva and Arvind opted to do a first look and then added a second set of romantic portraits after their ceremony and garden party during golden hour at the garden. We loved getting a chance to photograph their romantic formals twice- each time in different spots in the garden! There were even a patch of bright orange poppies and tiny purple flowers that perfectly complemented them!
To finish off their wedding day, they had their reception at their favorite restaurant, Tamerine in Palo Alto. It was a day that was perfect to the two of them and they were surrounded by a close group of their friends and family from all over the world. We wish them the very best and happy wedding planning for their second wedding in India!
