Ask yourself-Do you want to stress? be overwhelm and rely on family and friends that have many opinions and none of which are yours! You will just add to your already wedding nerves and stress, planning your wedding must be fun and full of new experiences.

Beautiful same sex couple truly in LOVE with one another and friends since High School.

Christy shared how much she loves her partner Robin with my husband and I.

We truly get excited to hear Love Story’s like theirs.

Christy expressed that Robin is “the one” and was planning to propose. Shortly after that Christy did pop the question and Robin said, Yes!. We were so thrilled to have been part of the surprise proposal.

We at Modern Chic & Shabby Events by JoeAnnie were booked to assist, plan and coordinate the day and design details and elements of décor and opulent florals for their Wedding Day.

The spectacular venue was selected and booked, and planning was in full effect, we were honored to be part of some incredible tastings and so much more. We at Modern Chic & Shabby Events by JoeAnnie joined them for some of their incredible shopping days. Attention to every detail was key, they had a vision and theme for “Their Greatest Adventure Yet” wedding. Christy and Robin truly enjoyed every aspect of the wedding planning and details. Specific elements of décor were just a joy to acquire. Every vintage and antique shop was a true treat for them, from finding the exact color globe, compass, vintage suitcases, signs and antique cameras, they knew exactly what they wanted to convey and share with their love ones on thier special day.

Mendhi  Night, henna art  is part of a South Asian tradition.  You will see it used in many Hindu Brides.  It is part of a tradition where future brides are drawn on their hands and feet.  The beautiful intricate designs to adorn the brides are quite special.   The Henna artist will place the grooms name hidden within the design. It is said that he searches for it at the end of the evening, when they are in private . They also say the darker the henna design turns on the skin, the more he loves her. Another interesting fact is that brides are not to do any house chores until the henna fades. Nice ! 

Victoria and Troy's Traditional Hindu Wedding really showcased their culture and the love and respect for the same.  In keeping  with their tradition,   Victoria's Mendhi night  started her 4 day wedding festivities. She wore a  traditional Saree dress that was also worn by her maternal  grandmother  on her Wedding day years ago, and then handed down to her mother  who wore it on her Wedding day years earlier.  It was so beautiful to see all the rich tones of reds and golds. I was truly taken by the beauty and creative Henna Designs drawn on her guests and the gorgeous Sarees worn by them.  I too joined in and wore a Saree, It was such an honor to indulge in the beauty and rich culture of her Mendhi Night, from the delicious food prepared to us designing for this beautiful night.  .
