Small gold favor boxes were tied with teal ribbons and sat atop purple napkins at each place setting.
For the reception, Indhu traded in her bridal gown for a traditional Indian sari. They had their first dance to “Ain’t It Enough” by Old Crow Medicine Show. “We whole-heartedly identify with the lyrics and want to remember them forever,” Indhu says.
In addition to wedding cake, other desserts were served including tres leches cake bites in shot glasses.
Petite gold vases held vibrant-colored blooms in small clusters. The entire look was pulled together with loops of bear grass around the top.
The flowers were the star at this outdoor wedding. A low, dense floral arrangement of hydrangeas, red ginger, orchids, yellow yarrow, craspedia, matsumoto asters, orange lilies, jasmine and pincushion proteas ran the length of the sequin-covered head table.
Greg wore a boutonniere made up of vibrant blue orchids paired with yellow craspedia.
Orchids in vibrant colors were used throughout the celebration.
Champagne cocktails were served up on the lawn of the Fairchild, next to the reception site.

The couple arrived at the garden in a vintage Rolls-Royce.
Indhu wore her hair down with smooth waves, and accented the classic style with a silver bindi.

The couple's ceremony was conducted in Sankrist, and included rituals of a Hindu wedding.

A gorgeous ombré aisle of rose petals led to the ceremony mandap (altar), which was decorated in magenta bougainvillea, jasmine and hanging strands of hot pink dendrobium orchids.
Indhu carried a knockout bunch of yellow ranunculus, statice, pink wax flowers, blue orchids, purple lisianthus, craspedia and spray roses.
Large orchid chandeliers hung from the ceiling of the tent and became floating centerpieces. Glass globes with votive candles inside lit the blooms from below.
Dinner took place under a tent-like structure of white linens that was open enough to see the stars. The grass was left exposed for a fuss-free splash of natural color.
The mandap was decorated with magenta bougainvilla and accents of jasmine. Indhu's grandmother designed a kolam, a south Indian design made with flowers that brings good luck during auspicious occasions, that was placed in front of the mandap.
Luxurious, deep purple chairs were placed around the head table, which was topped with low arrangements of boldly colored flowers.
High-top tables, which were uplit and dressed with petal linens, surrounded the dance floor.
