Fusion weddings can sometimes involve twice the planning and effort, and this one-of-a-kind wedding was executed flawlessly! Two beautiful cultures come together with two ceremonies, lush wedding décor and a spectacular venue. Get inspired by this jewel tone wedding with a peacock feather color palette, captured exquisitely by Pepper Nix Photography.
Two Cultures, Two Ceremonies
The couple’s wedding day began with a gorgeous Greek Orthodox ceremony in a breathtaking cathedral.
It’s all about the grand entrance! The bride made a dazzling entrance wearing a long, cascading veil.
The lovely couple was all smiles during their special day.
A Glam Bridal Party
Bridesmaids rocked pretty peacock blue dresses to match the theme, while the groomsmen kept it stylishly simple in black and white.
Sri Lankan Roots
Not only did the couple include the groom’s Greek traditions, but they mixed in the bride’s Sri Lankan traditions as well. The Greek Orthodox ceremony was followed by a Hindu ceremony, and the bridesmaids changed into elegant light blue saris.
The bride glowed in a blue and purple custom-made lehenga from India.
All The Little Details
No small detail was left out of this eclectic wedding! Luxe blue and purple chair covers decorated the bride and groom chairs.
Family and friends helped the couple make koufeta or favor bags filled with Jordan almonds. In Greek culture, koufeta (also known as bomboniere), usually consist of five almonds which represent wishing the new husband and wife happiness, health, wealth, children, and a long life. A peacock feather was added to each bag for a unique touch.
A Simply Elegant Cake
A three-tier cake became an elegant centerpiece for the dessert table. Blue ribbon, purple orchids and green hydrangea added the perfect amount of color.
Inspired by rich jewel tones and the bride’s Sri Lankan culture, the wedding and reception décor was decked out in vivid blues, purples and greens. The darker color scheme combined both the bride’s and groom’s tastes, fusing nontraditional details with lush colors.
Blue water was added in vases to represent the crystal blue waters of Sri Lanka.
Draped fabric and lights on the ceiling created a chic focal point above the tables.
DIY Tip: Limited on space? Go vertical with your place cards! Hang a beaded curtain and attach place cards to strands of ribbon to show guests where to sit.
Peacock feathers added exotic flair to all the floral arrangements.
An Unforgettable Night
At the end of the evening, a lively party ensued! The happy couple partied with friends and family and had an unforgettable night.
