Philly Magic Gardens was a magical backdrop for Ambika and Justin’s Indian American wedding. Every inch of the outdoor garden wedding space is another piece of mosaic tile or piece of art.
The evening was clad in both Indian and American wedding traditions. Indian tradition: Mehndi, the painting of the hands and feet of the bride, garlands given to guests, and a large amount of rose petals thrown in the air for good luck.
Everything about this garden reception was colorful–the rich attire, the venue, the mix match vintage chairs from Maggpie Rentals (one of our favs), a Philly LOVE cake, our funky iron pipe pretzel stand, delicious craft beers, a blackberry mint bourbon drink, and family style dinner service.
The menu started with Indian Chaat (chick pea, potato, hot indian spices and cool yogurt, topped with a naan triangle), Pecan Crusted Chicken over a wilted spinach salad, Hoison Beef over soba noodles and more. Seasonal pie mason jars and a Philly LOVE cake for dessert.
Props to Karen and Dana from All Heart Photo Video for capturing the colorful, warm, and simply gorgeous details of this wedding. and of the bride and groom….
We heart Ambika and Justin!
