I love a good sparkling wedding and this one takes the (sparkling!) cake. Jessica and Chintan's wedding in Portland, Oregon was washed in light, shimmer, and color with nods to Indian culture. It just goes to show that you can have a glamorous civil ceremony full of personal and unique touches.
Here's what June of Adorn Invitations had to say about this gorgeous wedding:
Following a month long trip and a very large traditional wedding in India, Jess (writer) and Chintan (engineer) returned home to Portland, Oregon for a low key, small and simple wedding with friends that took place on April Fool's day. The day began with a civil ceremony at Multnomah County Courthouse where the judge was gifted with a custom cake by Dream Cakes.
Adorning a gorgeous custom made gown by local Portland designer – Embellish Designs, Jessica’s shimmering gold Christian Loubotin’s (and gold sequin converses for the reception) were a beautiful contrast against their relaxed civil ceremony. Jessica also payed homage to her partners ancestry and her own contemporary taste with a nontraditional bouquet completely filled with glimmering peacock jeweled broaches (the national bird of India.)
After taking a romantic pedicab tour around the city where their hearts first met, the couple returned home to their newly built house with their friends and family for a selection of treats from Voodoo donuts and Poplandia popcorn following a dinner of sweet and savory grilled sandwiches from local food trucks, PBJ’s Grilled and Koi Fusion.
And here are some photos from their traditional wedding in India.
