Today I have an Indian Fusion Styled Shoot on the blog put together to showcase the elegance of a traditional Hindu wedding. The selected theme was traditional vintage romance and to show the world that we have a talented group of creative partners that can make this happen in the Southwest which is a perfect destination for a Hindu wedding.
The cake was inspired by the original damask wall print in the ballroom and the stylist accented it with blush and ivory roses. They utilized what San Marcos Resort naturally has, vintage and glam sitting in historic Downtown Chandler Arizona. San Marcos was built in 1912 where it was originally conceived as a winter getaway for celebrities, dignitaries, and luminaries. The Sari was chosen because of its vintage style and detailed embellishments but yet has modern touches.
Sticking to the theme, the hair and make up was kept simple and classic. For the hair it was decided on loose curls pinned to the back with side bangs, accented with a traditional sari veil. Makeup also was kept simple, with a natural and modest overall look that we paired with a soft blush lip. The Crown Plaza San Marcos Resort played appropriately into Indian fusion theme, 50’s glam. It has a historic and regal appearance.
The groom model was chosen based off his easily transferrable appearance whereas the bride model was chosen because of her simple and distinct features.
The shoot ran smoothly. Jo Ann Grant of Apropos Creations conceptualize everything and even created a timeline so all collaborators knew what is expected and when.
Luckily enough, everyone was provided with a very detailed information and timeline and all followed so there were no issues that came up.
