Highlands Ranch Mansion wedding of Stephanie and Vivek August 27, 2016.
Stephanie and Vivek embraced their Jewish and Indian cultures with their multicultural Denver, Colorado wedding.
Vivek who was born in India lead a Baraat, which is a groom’s wedding procession on a customary white horse. Family members and friends sang and danced to the beat of a drum as they walked up to the front of the Highlands Ranch Mansion where both families joined in the dance party.
The Baraat was followed by a ketubah signing ceremony of their Jewish marriage license, before the actual wedding ceremony performed by Rabbi “Mo” Adam Morris on the front lawn of the mansion, that included a beautiful chuppah draped with white flowers.
One of the many highlights of their ballroom reception was the Hora, a chair dance in which the bride and groom, seated in chairs are lifted into the air while being pumped up and down and all around. The Denver wedding band Soul X played a traditional Jewish folk song for the Hora and kept the room hopping all night.
Guest photographers Anne and Bill Holland were a big help covering Stephanie and Vivek’s wedding and reception from many different angles.
Florist, Lilli Black of Bella Calla decorated the chuppah and designed Stephanie’s bouquet, as well as adorning the reception tables with beautiful floral arrangements.
Wedding planner, Julie Gambrell, owner of Classic Creations went above and beyond making sure their wedding flowed perfectly.
Wedding videographer, Lawrence Alexander was a pleasure to work alongside.
A big thank you goes to Stephanie and Vivek for trusting me to document their truly amazing wedding from start to finish.
