Catching Pure Joy on the Wedding Flip Side

Catching Pure Joy on the Wedding Flip Side
 There were two sides to this wedding coin and each were vastly different from one another, yet both extremely beautiful. Kalpana and Matt tied the knot at the beautiful estate venue, Villa Verano in the foothills of Santa Barbara. Trina Scmidt worked with us and helped the couple coordinate and flip this glorious wedding from a traditional, colorful and elaborate Indian wedding to an elegant  California style celebration.

If you think planning a single wedding is a lot of work, try planning an entire day of wedding celebration festivities that incorporate both cultures and preferences into a seamless full day, chalk full of elaborate details. Pure Joy Catering entered this beautiful celebration on the flip side. The Bride and Groom, along with all their guests changed outfits for the second set of events and all the linens, tableware and decor were also completely switched over to showcase a beautiful, soft pastel colored California style wedding.

After the traditional Indian wedding ceremony and lunch, Pure Joy Catering ended the day’s celebration with yummy passed appetizers and a delicious plated meal.
