real wedding: Tricia & Saheel

There is not much we love more than a back to back wedding weekend that is filled with love, family, and the coining of two cultures -- and that is exactly what we had for Tricia and Saheel! With the Indian celebration on Friday (including the most epic groom Barat entrance) and the American wedding on Saturday, this weekend was one for the books. 

Tricia and Saheel lead very busy, but very exciting lives -- so their wedding weekend had to obviously follow suit. With the entire weekend set in Tricia's parent's tented back yard, the Indian celebration kicked off mid Friday with Saheel surprising Tricia by arriving via helicopter! This guy knows how to make an entrance, quite literally. Each night the same clear tent took on a different vibe to give the returning guests completely unique and separate experiences. From the colorful, vibrant, pattern-filled Friday night, to the softer but still exotic Saturday reception, each night was full of nods to the couple as well as their heritages (complete with animal figurine escort cards to create a display and homage to Kenya, where Saheel's family was from) to create an inviting atmosphere for guests --- whether they had traveled from up the street or across the world.

We absolutely loved working with this couple and their families to create a wedding weekend as one of a kind as Tricia and Saheel!!
