  • My Wedding: Saturday Part 1

    0020theaandrachitsaturday.jpg

    Our wedding programs had quotes all over them from our guests who gave us "words of wisdom" when they RSVPed. Plus, a fun sketch of me and Rachit I made! 

    Getting the invites right was such a process! Making them yourself is very satisfying and save money, but trying to reign in everyone's design preferences is so hard! I love gestural imagery nd water color, Rachit loves clean lines. In the end, I did a lot of water color and then used that to "fill" the geometric shapes. I also threw in some hand painted leaves to tie it all together. Melding the Hindu and Jewish symbology was tricky, but fun!

    Left to right: a ring given to me long ago by a special elderly woman at my Synangogue / an heirloom ring from my mothers family / Rachit's hand crafted wedding band from Jewelsmith / My custom hand crafted rings from a designer in NYC

    Custom earrings I made for myself / Badgley Mischka shoes that I redesigned with embellishment to match my headpiece

    Rachit's custom suit from MySuit!

    My dress is from my dear friend Rebecca Schoneveld, she helped me customize her "Gemma" gown by adding a sleeve, raising the lace neckline, and lowering the back. 

    My custom headpiece! I designed the silk flowers and had them made in NYC, and then of course I added lots of rustic detailing and gold!

    My to-die-for bouquet from Lindsay Rae Design!

    Even though we got married in NC, I knew the weather could be precarious, so I had a white blazer on hand! Fun to mix the modern with the vintage lace. Blazer is from Ann Taylor.

  • My Wedding: Saturday Part 2

    I can't get over how awesome my friends are, they all came DECKED out!

    0427theaandrachitsaturday.jpg 0434theaandrachitsaturday.jpg 0767theaandrachitsaturday.jpg

    The day of the wedding, the temperature had drop 40 degrees from what it was on Monday! It turned out to be in the 40's and drizzling - such is life! Luckily, we were able to move the ceremony into our tent and push the tables around. I think it turned ou beautifully! You just have to roll with it on the day of the wedding...

    Instead of the traditional circle of the man around the woman, we each circled each other 3 times and then walked in a circle together once.

    My godmonther Galia lighting the traditional candles!

    Each of our parents reciting blessings they wrote themselves.

    Our beyond incredible Ketubah (A Jewish marriage contract) that my godmother Galia Goodman (Of Galia Graphics) created! She does this for a living, and we were beyond excited and honored that she made ours for us. The craftsmanship, love and detail put into this piece is incredible. We worked hard with her to incorporate both tradtional Jewish elements as well as Hindu motifs. Thank you Galia!!

    Personal vows...We definitely both cried!

    Drinking wine from my mom's family Kiddush cup.

    Instead of having our Rabbi read the 7 blessings, we divvied them out between close friends and family, I loved this part of the ceremony!

    0676theaandrachitsaturday.jpg

    So yes, there are a lot of wonderful talented people in my close circle: this wooden Chuppah was crafted and created by my other godmother Meredith! It was so special to be married under something someone close to us had made.

    Meredith on the left!

    The breaking of the glass!

    Hand water colored escort cards by yours truly! And stunning lush foliage by Lindsay Rae Design.

    Rachit and I LOVE hot sauce, especially Sriracha, so I made it my mission to have it at the wedding! I drew labels for us, had them printed and then worked with my mom and friends the week before the wedding to fill these hot sauce bottles and label them. They also doubled as wedding favors!

    My incredible planner Chelsey, of Gather Toogether events made these hanging farm tables a reality! She had the incredible idea and then worked with our tent designer and rental company to figure out the logistics - so worth it! Thank you Chelsey!!

    Locally farmed food and lots of goat cheese! Our entire day was catered beautifully by The Inn at Celebrity Dairy.
