|That would be on the right helping our Bride with her shoes :)|
Afterward, the entire bridal party took off in a limo provided by Metrowest Limousine and headed to WPI, the Higgins House on campus for more portraits. The ceremony took place on the stage of the Great Hall right before sunset and the room felt so romantic and intimate with votive candles surrounding the stage. Extreme Productions did a great job lighting the stage red and that really completed the look of the room. My favorite part of the ceremony is seeing both cultures, Pakistan and American combined into one. Also, I really loved watching Farrah and Clayton reading their vows to one another, so sweet!
Following the ceremony, cocktail hour was held in the Washburn Hall with live music provided by Amherst Ensemble. Caterer, Kabob and Curry provided the delicious Indian cuisine for both cocktail and dinner.
The Great Hall was transformed into the reception space during cocktail hour and Toupins Catering did an amazing job getting all the tables and chairs set up within an hour. A Beautiful Bouquet created the high and low floral centerpieces which paired with the champagne linens and the chiavari chairs provided by Gala LDT. For dinner, guests were treated to a delicious buffet with many different options even I couldn't believe it. But the dessert won my little heart. The wedding cake from Konditor Meister had 5 layers and 4 different flavors; pina colada, black forest, strawberry grand marnier and lemon raspberry. The cake was massive and so delicious! Guest also got to enjoy the photo booth by Red Eye Photobooth and Deejay Bunty, MC Mike and their entire Extreme Productions team really got the party started. All the guests were on the dance floor the whole night!
As for the guest favors, I created a custom red and gold candy station with 7 different types of candies; cherry gummy bears, twizzlers, red foiled chocolate balls, strawberry candy crystals, butter toffee chocolate, almond hersey kisses and m&m's. (Couple of my favorite wholesale candy companies online are Candy Warehouse and Metro Candy). I used a gold linen to cover the table and placed boxes underneath to give the jars height. I finished off the candy buffet by placing candles all around the table.
