PRESS FEATURE :: INDIAN WEDDINGS MAGAZINE :: PUJA & MANDEEP

As featured in the Fall/Winter 2015 publication of Indian Weddings Magazine, Puja and Mandeep’s wedding certainly wowed with inspirations from The Great Gatsby. From the black and gold details to the plumed feather centerpieces, the reception decor evoked the classic art-deco era of the 1920′s. Photography by Wedding Documentary. Decor and Design by Anais Event Planning & Design.

Lisa & Shantanu’s Wedding Featured in Harper’s Bazaar India

Words cannot describe how incredibly thrilled we were to receive an email from photographer Tim Halberg mentioning that Harper’s Bazaar India would like to publish Lisa and Shantanu’s wedding. Truly, we loved designing and planning the outdoor celebration at BR Cohn Winery and when a magazine also falls in love with a wedding you love, it doesn’t get much better than that (professionally speaking)! Of course, we work with an amazing team of wedding professionals and all are well-deserving of this noteworthy praise. Our gratitude goes out to all of you! Frankly, we’re still awestruck that this wedding made it all the way to Harper’s!

Majestic Jewels

Jewelry…one of our favorite obsessions. Can a girl really ever have too much? According to Coco Chanel, before leaving the house, “a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” We’re not so sure this applies to maharanis…especially with jewels this majestic! On this one subject, Coco, we’ll have to disagree for now. Photos by Arrowood Photography. Jewelry designed by Manjusha Jewels; selected for a fashion photo shoot by Anais Events.

Venue Feature :: The Fairmont San Jose

We design and plan a lot of weddings in a lot of different spaces. Sometimes we’re putting up mandaps outside along the beautiful California coastline and other times we’re transforming hotel ballrooms into beautiful Bollywood-styled celebrations. When it comes to choosing a wedding venue in Northern California, we are spoiled with a variety of options.

So this got us thinking that we should periodically feature some of our favorite venues on our blog! Today we’re sharing some photos of our work at the fabulous Fairmont Hotel San Jose. This particular Fairmont is an amazing hotel because there are so many versatile spaces to work with. With over 13,000 square feet of space, we can include a lot of design elements and have plenty of room for wedding guests too. (And you know we throw BIG weddings!) Plus, the downtown location offers overnight guests many options for dining and entertainment the following day.

Without further adieu, enjoy some photos of the Fairmont San Jose’s ballroom as decorated by yours truly for two different weddings. All photos by Wedding Documentary Photo+Cinema. Designs by Anaïs Event Planning & Design.

CAKE TOPPERS SAY IT BEST

Some afternoons, we get a craving for sweets here at Anais Events. And on those particular afternoons, we happen to be drawn to images of…wedding cakes! A lot of planning and creativity is involved in creating the perfect wedding cake and the topper should definitely be the ‘icing on the cake’ so to speak. If you’re looking for a clever way to top it all off, consider using decorative word art like the options pictured here. But don’t look too long…you just might start craving a slice of cake too!
