“Niraj and I wanted our wedding and reception to be a testament to our life together in the future, full of details that reflected our values and interests. We aimed to welcome our family and friends by creating warmth through food, lighting, and music. We were certain Ginny Au was the right person to anchor the design/ planning process after she attended my brother’s wedding as a guest and connected with our families personally and aesthetically. In the months that followed, Ginny, along with each of our vendors, grew to understand our culture and vision with a fresh set of eyes.
When our wedding day arrived, I felt blissful as my family lovingly helped me get dressed. Niraj’s Baraat, or entrance, was vibrant. I felt ecstatic as I heard him dancing his way towards me. The ceremony was emotive yet graceful and took place upon a Lucite altar, gently draped with florals, allowing us to still experience our environment.
At the reception the next day, guests leisurely strolled the expansive grounds of Cavas Codorniu as a trio of violinists covered modern songs. When the sun set, we moved indoors for speeches and a dinner with innovative, international cuisine and cocktails. We danced under floating orchids to the beat of drums well into the early hours of the morning, never more exhilarated or euphoric.
Each perfectly executed element of our wedding week was a true testament to the dedication of our families and vendors. We are forever thankful for their talent and art, which elevated our ideas into an exquisite and unforgettable experience.”
