The ceremony was held under an elaborate, custom-built Mandap, standing 12’ x 12’ x 12’ tall, decorated in gold leaf and crowned in white fabric. We embellished the structure with 6,000 hand-opened red and fuchsia roses and accented it with white hydrangeas and orange marigold garlands. The base and steps were covered with 1,000 white Dendrobiam orchids. A white aisle runner featured colorful rose petals in a flowing design. Ivory chairs with gold embellishment, decorated with vibrant rose petals, provided seating for the couple. Gold-leaf bases holding glass containers filled with rose garlands (all hand-opened in the same vibrant colors as found throughout the ceremony) floating in water, lined both sides of the aisle. Contemporary music from a white Baby Grand piano and Indian DJ music provided ambience. The visual background: the Pacific Ocean and a flawless blue sky!
