We’re back with more from Bonnie and Tom’s modern, Indian fusion and oh-so fabulous wedding in Washington DC! In case you missed their intimate wedding ceremony blending both of their cultural backgrounds, be sure to check it out here. After the pair said “I do,” they stayed in the same location to celebrate their wedding reception at L2 Lounge in Georgetown. With bright pops of neon color reflecting their modern style and a dance party just as they had imagined it, the night was full of love and laughter with lots of celebration in between. We love how they even gave out bangles and bindis for their wedding guests to help them celebrate. Thanks to DuHon Photography for capturing Bonnie and Tom’s modern and personal wedding planned to perfection by Roberts & Co. Events!
From Bonnie: Making sure everyone was having a good time was our biggest priority. A large majority of guests were friends from all over the country, and by keeping the focus on the reception, we were able to celebrate in a big way.
We had a FujiInstax camera out for our wedding guestbook and it was so fun to look at the photos the next day! Everyone looked like they were having such a good time, and it held me over until the real wedding photos came in!
I was really into neon colors at the time, and our wedding planner, Tabitha, helped to infuse our wedding with pops of color. Our colors were neon yellow, pink and black – yes, REALLY neon!
Bonnie gave us some great advice for Washington DC area engaged couples:
Save some of your wedding budget for the last month of planning, as unexpected things come up and you really don’t want to skimp on them.
I suggest looking at non-traditional wedding venues to find exactly what you want. This way you can spend more money on the items that you are really attracted to. Working with a wedding planner and other industry professionals was huge in helping create a wedding day that was in our budget and matched our vision!
