Bright Florals and a COVID-19 Backyard Wedding

Story & Decor by Amoda Decor Photos by Porter Watkins Photography This is a love story of Renu and Carl. The beautiful florals signify hope and persistence. It was the last wedding I decorated right before the COVID-19 madness broke out, and the bride had gone through two venues who had closed their doors, so she then pivoted and did a very quiet and intimate ceremony at her parents’ backyard. She was full of hope and love, ready to start her new life. And we were happy to be right there by her side to create a vibrant and happy setting for her wedding day. I so admire her positive energy.

Photos captured by On Faith Photography Story submitted by Moonstruck Event Management The inspiration for this shoot brought two distinct styles together: the soul of Tuscany with the elegance of old-world style, offering a color palette of muted tones and intense pops of color. The Midwest complements the Tuscan charm with fields of green and the organic palette of pristine nature at a real working Ranch. The elegance, depth, and splendor which brought together the history-filled landscape with the elemental charm of a faraway region, captured the true beauty of nature in creating a “Midwest Tuscan Tale.” A classic and free-spirited bride even the wind failed to keep up with, was swept away to the love of her life in the midwestern breeze. It is magical moments such as these that lend themselves to a union where love creates the …

Everything about this wedding was colorful and bright and fun – much like the personalities of the couple! Every time we talked about wedding plans we ended up laughing and chatting. Even with all of the moving parts of a multi-day Indian wedding, these two kept their cool. A few highlights include a flash mob dance performance at the end of the reception, and Mithra’s niece arriving on the scene in a remote control car. Just so adorable!
