Ramya and Garrett had a super colorful and unique wedding at The Fig House in Los Angeles, CA. They are both Walt Disney artists, and Ramya handled all of the event design and created the paper goods and signage herself! Their mantra was “Color, culture and character” – they created a fusion wedding of Indian and American traditions. They used contemporary jeweled tones and vibrant brushstrokes of color to reflect their bright personalities and truly made their wedding all their own. You can see more of Ramya and Garrett’s beautiful style in their engagement session, and over on Green Wedding Shoes where their wedding was featured! I can’t get enough of these two and their amazing style!
Let’s dive in. I love their gold rings and bold style with a classic twist!
Guests were greeted with a happy yellow balloon and a sign painted by Ramya herself!
The Little Branch did a gorgeous job on the flowers! Ramya opted to have a more subdued bouquet to balance out the bright colors used everywhere else in the design.
I’m so impressed with Ramya’s design skills!
STUNNING. Ramya’s bold red lip was a perfect match for her first gown!
Garrett opted for a more traditionally American wedding outfit for his first look. I immediately fell in love with his OTAA tie!
Garrett opted to swap his tie clip for a gold necklace, and it was such a cool accessory!
Time for the first look!!
Garrett’s custom suit from Pocket Square Clothing included a special piece of fabric from India.
Another sweet custom touch – the back of Garrett’s suit had the date embroidered on the collar!
Traditional Indian weddings have the groom riding into the ceremony on a white horse, otherwise known as the Baraat. This white bicycle made for a perfect alternative, and the flowers added an extra pop of color!
We snuck in a few family photos before guests arrived!
Ramya and Garrett did a private vow exchange prior to the ceremony. It was such a sweet and intimate moment!
Isn’t this ceremony space beautiful?! I love that they added a little pop of color with those seat tassels.
Garrett on his trusty white steed!
Ramya and Garrett condensed a multi-day Hindu celebration into less than thirty minutes!
A bubble exit after the ceremony is always a good idea!
Ramya and Garrett changed into their second outfits during cocktail hour – and of course, enjoyed some tasty drinks from RoomForty!
Ramya’s second look from Bangalore, India, in all of its beauty. I absolutely love the colors!
Time for the reception!
Love the subtle Beauty and the Beast reference here!
These custom wooden painted cake toppers are just too cute. They match Ramya and Garrett’s first outfits so perfectly!
Ramya painted this little card canvas, along with all of the table numbers to match.
The bar at Fig House is stunning. The colors and the geometric stained glass paneling make this location one of a kind!
I’ll take a Bees Knees, thanks!
Oh wow – this sweetheart table! The colorful upside-down umbrellas make for such fun and whimsical decor. I love the strung carnations too!
A friend drew this coloring page of Ramya and Garrett to give guests an extra activity during dinner!
Let the dancing begin!
Garrett surprised everyone by performing a Bollywood-inspired skit and dance with his “Baraat Boys” – and he spoke in Kannada!
In the skit someone objected to the wedding, and Garrett had to prove his love by dancing!
The Bollywood number kicked off a night of great dancing!
Congratulations Ramya & Garrett!!
