A fairy tale wedding is what most girls dream of…but we got to literally create one for sweet couple, Joahnna and Mihir. When we learned the bride’s favorite book was Grimm’s fairy tale stories with their gorgeous illustrations and images the ideas and inspiration quickly began to pour out. The many stories and themes gave us an abundance of intriguing and romantic elements to play with, giving Johanna and Mihir a beautiful story to remember as their own. This woodsy and whimsy inspired wedding allowed all those who attended to travel into the woods to visit grandmothers house, the 3 bears and other storybook characters…reminding us that an adventure was just a page away.
Johanna and Mihir had a traditional Indian ceremony under an arch strung with mini yarn balls (reminiscent of the bride’s love of knitting), pom pom garlands and climbing flowers. Small ferns and flower clusters were artfully placed down the aisle by Twigg Botanicals . As always the gorgeous Saris added color and texture to the overall feel of the event. And..how cute was Johanna’s flower girl with her beautiful mother in her matching sari?
At the guestbook table family and friends were invited to add to their pages in this chapter of their lives, reminding the guests just how important their roles are in their own personal fairy tale.
Being that Johanna loves to knit…also inspired us to create this colorful escort card cabinet filled with knitting needles and yarn that we gathered of every color and stacked sky high in a vintage wood cabinet. Once guests found their names they prompted to weave their way to their tables.
Brightly colored pink poms and the mix of colored yarns added a soft texture to the decor.
The menu that sat at each place setting took guests through each course by chapters.
As the evening came to an end everyone was up on the dance floor shaking and grooving. Johanna and Mihir really had a fun loving group of family and friends who helped bring this chapter to a close. Everywhere you looked there were smiles and cheers. Their love for this couple really showed through with the ending celebration on the dance floor.
We were so pleased to be part of this special story. Here at Amorology we know that their fairy tale has really just begun. Johanna and Mihir, thank you for letting us be in one of the most important chapters of your love story. Enjoy each unique chapter and cheers to you having your happy ending! And a big thank you to Jenny Llanes Photography for capturing the endearing moments to always look back on.
