George and Jaipriya celebrated their wedding with many celebrations spread over multiple days with the focus being not only the merging of their families but a merging of their East Indian and American traditions. The rich and vibrant colors along with the traditions created a unique and wonderful experience for all of their guests.

Celebrations! Weddings & Events

George and Jaipriya knew there would be challenges with a multi-day, multi-cultural, multi-event celebration. They partnered with Celebrations! knowing Karen had the resources and experience to manage the logistics while staying within budget. After selecting a first class team of vendors, the Celebrations! staff ensured all the details, from the first luncheon through the final breakfast, were executed flawlessly.

Bliss Salon

Carmen Joe and her team took their tools of the trade on the road so they could assist Jaipriya before and after each event. With a very busy schedule throughout the weekend, it was critical to have on site assistance; Carmen Joe and her team were at the ready all day to insure Jaipriya received all the attention she deserved. The multi-cultural celebrations allowed Carmen Joe to use her talents to create unique styles to showcase the beautiful saris and gowns.

Hyatt Regency Downtown

As always, the Hyatt Regency provided stellar service and their staff
attended to every detail of all three events. As the guests arrived for the Garba ceremony on Friday evening, they were served a specialty cocktail which matched the color theme of the evening. Inside the Grand Pavilion ballroom, they were treated to five different food stations which included both American and East Indian food. On Saturday, the reception was held in the Sendero ballroom which allowed the guests access to a private foyer for cocktails and a beautiful buffet display. The guests danced the night away before retiring to their lovely guest rooms. The flexibility of the Hyatt staff and culinary team allowed us to partner with local experts to bring the two cultures together, honoring and celebrating them.

Jones Photo Art

What a beautiful event! George and Jaipriya made a wonderful choice having Seth and Desiree photograph their exciting weekend. The color, the culture, the love, and the connections, all beautifully captured by these two photographic artists.

Carousel of Music

Jim Gross provided many hours of expertise to create unique music for the weekend. Beginning with traditional Garba music to a wonderful mix for the ceremony and reception, the quality and professionalism showed at every event. Jim also provided live guitar for the cocktail hour before transitioning to an exciting reception playlist.

Avista Video Histories

Avista Video went above and beyond to ensure George and Jaipriya’s video wouldbe a treasure. They worked tirelessly with Carousel of Music to ensure
top quality audio during a windy outdoor ceremony, and continued to
capture exceptional videography through the reception. Memories fade
quickly — but this DVD provides a permanent, vivid keepsake for the
couple to cherish for years to come!
