Tanya and Richard got married one year ago today during a gorgeous Indian ceremony at the Pittsfield Building. This amazing venue is true to the art deco style and the designer who created all of the wedding paper goods (Steracle Press) incorporated drawings inspired by its ceiling tiles. From the invites to the favors, these paper goods created a lovely cohesive theme throughout Tanya and Richard’s decor. Another reoccurring visual motif throughout their wedding was elephants- an extremely revered animal in Indian culture. Elephants could be found on the table decor holding the table numbers, in their favors, on their cake- everywhere. They also had pops of gold and manzanita branches scattered throughout, creating an elegant, natural, and art deco feel. Fragrant Design provided their lovely floral and romantic candlelight to the room.

Tanya wore a sari, and was adorned with henna and gorgeous jewelry. The mandap was beautifully decorated with soft sheer fabric, draped asymetrically. The bride did not walk down with a bouquet, unlike most brides that we tend to see, but instead she carried a couple of leaves (true to her culture). Tanya and Richard’s wedding cake, adorned with gold elephants, was provided by Amy Beck Cake Design. They also had adorable little macaron boxes as favors for their guests to take home. Guests had a fun time taking their photos with Fotio during the reception- a unique “open air” photo booth.
