Real Weddings- Khushma and Austin at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch…
The Real Weddings- Khushma and Austin at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch. – It was a great honor assisting Khushma and Austin during their fall wedding at the lovely Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch.
When I first met with this beautiful couple (truly, they are adorable), we discussed ways to blend their philosophy on love, their values, and their unique romantic story with cultural aspects. This would also honor their families.
Together they shared an interesting mix of roots — a combination of Indian American and Japanese American along with their family faith traditions, Hinduism and Buddhism. They wanted everyone to feel included, yet wanted to bring in sacred elements that were meaningful for them both. This is when we decided to have two ceremonies, one Hindu wedding ceremony and one Buddhist wedding ceremony. This surely honored their cultural heritage.
The first day of celebration for Khushma and Austin started with a vibrant and colorful Sangeet celebrated at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in sunny Scottsdale, Arizona. The interiors of this venue was transformed into a traditional Indian street fair. We hung parasols from bistro lights above the dancefloor which showcased Austin’s Japanese heritage. The decor setting was crafted by the fabulous Festive Event Rents. There was so much beauty overflowing from every corner of this ballroom, that we can’t take our eyes away from the fabulous shots captured by Ushna Khan Photography.
For The Real Weddings- Khushma and Austin at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch second day, it was time to carry on with the Hindu ceremony. It was hosted at the same location on their Sunset Lawn. We were amazed by the elegant and classic look of this ceremony. It featured purple, champagne, and red color palette. After the ceremony, lunch was served.
For the second half of the wedding day, everyone once again, got ready for the Buddhist wedding ceremony. The decor from the Hindu ceremony was repurposed and modified and 1,001 golden cranes in a form of a garland were added. These were made by Austin’s mother and it was delicately hung from the altar backdrop.
it was time to celebrate the newlyweds with an elegant and luxurious reception party enlivened by DJ Isaac of Hyper Productions DJs He owned the stage, putting everyone to dance! This closing gala followed the line of amazingness set in all previous events and had perfection written all over the place. So much beauty and so much flair! But nothing compared to our gorgeous Khushma, who looked like a goddess throughout the different ceremonies. This is due to the exquisite hair and makeup designed by Makiaj Beauty. In between all the dancing, the scrumptious food and jaw dropping cake were prepared by The Scottsdale Resort and McCormick Ranch.
