I've never done flowers for an Indian wedding here in Kansas City, unfortunately for me. I've always wanted too, but never had the chance, so when Madi of Madison Sanders Events asked me to take part in this inspiration shoot I jumped at the opportunity. When I wrote Middle of the Map Weddings, I got the chance to share a handful of Indian weddings, and I always found them so inspiring. Not only the gorgeous colors and decor, but also the beautiful traditions behind the events that make up a wedding event. We had an amazing team for this one, and I'm so glad that I got to be involved.

This was my first time every making a varmala. I wanted to coordinate with the lovely colors of the models green and gold sari. I used gold beads along with white and green mums and carnations. It took a lot more flowers, and was way heavier than I expected.
Madi did all the lovely gold lettering and signage that you see in this shoot. She is a calligraphy master.
This is probably my favorite shot from the day. I just adore all the beautiful colors and textures that Paper Crane Photo captured here.
