Preet & Khalad - Wedding Planning & Styling

When Preet and Khalad contacted me in March to plan and style their July wedding, they had a few ideas about their wedding.  They knew they wanted a venue that was open to the outdoors, and outside of the city.  They wanted the caterer to make East Indian food, and for decor they requested red and green apples.  Preet and Khalad wanted their guests to feel included, and they had an intimate wedding with about 25 people at the reception.

The couple wanted everyone at the ceremony to be part of the wedding party, so the men stood on the groom's side and the women on the bride's side.  The comissioner was Jaime from Travel & Events With Style, and the ceremony was beautiful.

The venue was Cherry Hill Estate just outside of Steinbach.  They were very accommodating and even made a customized dish of butter chicken (which was delicious).  All photos below were taken by Tracey Kiansky Photography, and I must say that the photos are fantastic and she was very cheerful and fun to work with on a hot, hot day.

Here's the stunning bride and groom, braving the heat and risking the water:

Adrienne made Preet's bouquet:

Preet and Khalad requested red and green apples as the colour palette.  We added ivory and just a bit of black.  The colours ended up being fresh and vibrant in the white room:

The cake was made by P.S. Cake Designs.  I especially liked the fondant apples:

The plantable favours were from Botanical Paperworks:

We made these fabric ruffly balls, which took forever to make but looked great.  Worth it, I think.

Instead of a guest book, we asked guests to write little notes to the bride & groom, and pin them to our message board:

The tables were simple and fresh looking, with the red really popping against the white and green.  Because the tables were so narrow, we used chair sashes instead of table runners on the tables:

Preet and Khalad were a pleasure to work with and an incredibly sweet couple.  I had tears in my eyes during speeches, as their friends shared memories and heaped good wishes on them.  We at With a Flourish, and I think every other vendor working on this wedding felt very lucky to be part of such a special day.  Thanks very much Preet & Khalad and all the best in your marriage!

Looks great! Nice to see those apples I've heard of in action.
