A few days ago, I received in the mail a lovely thank you card from Arthi and Joe.  Their wedding was about a year ago, and I recall it being a very hectic time for this amazing laid back couple.  They were moving from Philadelphia to California and because of the move and stresses with work and school, they hired cHill Weddings to plan their wedding day.  It was a great honor to do so and to witness two beautiful families and cultures come together.

This whimsical “mandap” was created under the Pergola in the courtyard of Knowlton Mansion by Papertini Floral Design.  As always, she takes the clients vision and runs with it to create something fun and unique.  Fortunately, the weather held up, so we were able to make Arthi and Joe’s wedding ceremony dreams come true!

Here are some more beautiful images from their Indian wedding ceremony taken by photographer Conrad Louis-Charles.

I always fully support the first look if possible! I love how private, fun, and real it is.      _CLC0674

I love doing weddings and. feel privileged to work with couples who really love each other. This makes the wedding day more of a celebration with family and friends, rather than a big production that causes a lot of stress and anxiety.  Arthi was one of the calmest and most collected brides I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, and even throughout planning, where both she and Joe were very involved they remained laid back.  They put their trust in us, their vendors, and as a team, we were able to create and execute a beautiful, vibrant, celebratory event.

Many thanks to the amazing wedding professionals I had the opportunity of working with and THANK YOU to Arthi and Joe for being the very definition of a cHILL couple!  Happy Anniversary and I hope California is treating you well!!
