Colorful and Festive Indian Wedding at Palmdale Estates

The bejeweled bride.

Indian bridal mehndi on her hands.

The intricacy of the mehndi is just incredible.

She looks like a queen!

The gold ornaments dangling from the bride's wrists are known as kalira. They signify blessings and good wishes, and are worn until the end of the wedding ceremonies.

We just love the hot pink and white draping overhead! A sneak peek of the colorful wedding reception to come...

A great shot of the groom with his breathtaking bride in the background.

The newlyweds in a festive rickshaw after Jai Mala—a ritual where the bride and groom place garlands over each other's heads. The circle represents that there is no beginning and no end to their union—similar to a wedding ring!

A colorful floral arrangement. We just love the use of citrus fruits to brighten up the clear vase!

An amazing hanging escort card display.

Looking sharp in their reception outfits. We're diggin' this pink, purple and orange color scheme!

The entire bridal party.

And the entire guest list! What a great shot.

Hanging hot pink flower pomanders.

One of the most festive and colorful wedding cakes we've seen!

Palmdale Estates specializes in Indian weddings, offering traditional Indian cuisine and permanent mandaps in their gardens.

A cute little guest taking full advantage of the wedding candy buffet!

Skittles are a perfect complement to the colorful wedding color scheme.

Now everybody inside for some dancing!

Solo for the bride!

Verified Reviews from Real Brides & Grooms

“Touch of Grace’s professionalism, expertise, and service comes second to none. At the end of the planning, they came to know me better than most, and could tell me what I needed and wanted before I could articulate it. I can honestly say my wedding day was perfect and it was because of them.”

“The peace of mind they gave me was worth every penny and far more. It was the best money I ever spent.”

“After the wedding, my new husband and I arrived in the suite, and there were white rose petals strewn all over the bed. They had also gotten us slices of wedding cake. Even more thoughtfully, they put together samples of our wedding decor in a gift bag. That was probably the most touching thing because the wedding night flies by in a blur and all of the details I had fretted over for months, I completely missed. They, however, brought them all to me.”

“Everything they did was done because it’s what I wanted. They took copious notes and executed everything to my wishes, including providing the Skippy extra-chunky peanut butter and crackers I wanted as my pre-ceremony snack.”

“Amber listened well and totally got what we wanted. She was professional and completely organized. I tend to be a bit of a control freak, and Amber put me at ease. I could—and did—put everything in her hands, and she was PERFECT.”

“Everything was absolutely brilliant!!!! From the moment, I woke up, Melissa was in the suite with breakfast. The rest of the day she flitted in and out. I didn’t have to do anything.”

“Both Dawn and Amber are very dedicated to their clients. They are tireless workers and made sure our vendors did their jobs! I highly recommend A Touch of Grace!”

“They were very easy to talk to. Having not planned a wedding before, I often had logistical questions, which they answered expertly. They told me what things would work best.”

“Both Amber and Melissa were always available by e-mail to answer questions, ease anxiety, and to give gentle reminders.”

“I appreciated how attentive Amber was. When asked, she gave her advice. And she was no pushover. Completely polite and professional, but didn’t anyone slip.”

“Dawn and Amber were an immediate match. They were easy to talk with, and after we exchanged ideas, it was clear we were on the same wave length. They are also very reasonable in their pricing for their, as it turned out, over-the-top performance.”

“I could NOT have been more pleased with their ability to join me at the majority of vendor meetings. They were right there during the entire process.”
