Immerse yourself in the captivating designs of this Irish and Indian fusion wedding, celebrated over the course of two days. Day one featured a traditional Christian wedding ceremony held at the Gaylord Palms Resort in the Fort, which was followed by a night of dancing, performances, and drinking in the couple’s beer garden.
As guests approached the Fort, they passed through a whimsical branch gate with fresh orchids and foliage adorning the panels and floating candles lit at the base.
Soft, blush rose petals lined the aisle, drawing guests’ eyes toward the wedding altar. A ten-foot, branch-based panel wall, decorated with more white orchids and fresh green elements, served as the backdrop to the Christian wedding ceremony, while a row of floating candles and woven natural elements lined the area in front.
To add a touch of color, blush roses were incorporated into the bouquet for the bride, and bridesmaids.
The ceremony backdrop helped create lovely photos of the couple during the ceremony without dominating the look.
After the Christian ceremony, guests walked through large “O” arches, wrapped with warm market lights, and entered into an indoor beer garden, complete with trees, garden chairs, overhead market lights, and live entertainment.
As the festivities began, guests mingled by the Bottoms Up Bar and gathered around low octagon tables with fabric-covered cushion cubes that featured candle-filled lanterns.
Live music brought everyone to their feet for a night of dancing while the warm glow of market lights over the band and dance floor sent a warm and welcoming ambiance. Hand strung glass beer bottle garlands helped transformed the space into an authentic beer garden.
