Cultural Wedding Inspiration!

Cultural weddings are such a source of inspiration to us!
Did you know that Marina is half Pakistani? From the vibrant colors, patterns and textures to the impeccable and intricate details, they never cease to amaze and impress.

One of the most fun invitations we've had the pleasure of designing was for Ann & Abbas, a fabulous couple who wanted an equally fabulous way to invite their guests in style. Inspired by Ann's wedding jewelry and cultural art, each piece of the suite was hand drawn and adorned with detailed gold illustrations. Bright pops of royal purple and fuchsia on the folder and bellyband really captured their guest's attention and set the tone for the joyous event! The wedding invitation was accompanied by individual event cards, which all tiered together to create a single design, and when separated showcased their own unique design.

Now on to the unbelievable cake created by Ron Ben Israel. How gorgeous is this?! Taking direct cues from our invitation, Ron designed a show-stopping cake fit for a queen. If only we could have tasted it ...

All of the event design and planning was done by the awe-inspiring Annie Lee of Daughter of Design. Working with her is always a joy and an absolute pleasure! If you want an unforgettable event- you know who to call.

For more inspiration on the beauty of Indian and Pakistani weddings, check out INSIDE WEDDINGS Summer 2010 issue, as well as this great post on Indian Weddings by our friend Jennifer Gillespie of Calligraphy by Jennifer. She is not only a highly talented calligrapher but also a great resource for all things wedding!

Stay inspired ~ Stacey & Marina
