My friends Rita and Stefan were married in Calcutta, India earlier in 2011. Rita is finishing her thesis with Harvard and Stefan is a professor at Berkley and between the friendships they have established in the US, they chose Yosemite for another celebration of their union. This was something we planned in just a couple of months as they were packing up to move to Europe for the summer and thanks to Skype, we were able to still have a face to face consultation and view specific flower combinations to help her decide. She loved the bright fresh tones of bold blues, spring greens and peach and we threw in some touches of Yosemite with scabiosa pods and coffee berries. They decided on a morning ceremony at Sentinel Beach following with brunch for their guests so they can enjoy their days throughout the park. Her choice for centerpieces was to create an overall larger scale look but it was made of various small vases so each guest was able to take one as their favor. Guests signed wooden puzzle pieces for the guest book, everyone made well wishes out of handmade butterflies and danced before continuing outside for a fun group shot with the falls as a backdrop. This was such an honor to be a witness into such an amazing couple with an incredible group of friends who traveled from very far distances to experience this amazing day as well.
