Berry Colored Louisiana Wedding with Polynesian Dancers

Berry-Colored Louisiana Wedding with Polynesian Dancers

After rescheduling due to the pandemic, Natasha and Philip finally got to have their day. The photos of their day depict a wedding that’s romantic and elegant with a splash of modernity, but the occasion was anything but ordinary.

Despite having to limit the number of guests in their indoor space due to COVID, Natasha and Philip were able to merge their families and create something magical, from their stunning sunset proposal in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee to incorporating elements of Natasha’s Polynesian culture with live performances, this was the wedding of their dreams.

They turned to Sainte Terre in Louisiana to host the intimate September celebration which they decked out in a berry-themed palette of burgundy, blush, gold, and greenery. Infusing the colors into the elements, guests were transported to a feeling of paradise with elaborate floral designs, sleek custom signs, and romantic twinkling lights. We especially love the beautiful arrangement of flowers with a sign displaying their last name hung above the sweetheart table along with suspended greenery, gold votives, and terrarium glass vases playing up the aesthetic.

“Nothing in particular stands out because everything was so perfect! From the florals, greenery, centerpieces, personalized signage, and cakes, we loved it all!” exclaims the couple as they reminisced.

And while the details surely captured our eyes, it’s the inclusion of Nastasha’s roots that was the cherry on top of the cake!

“I am from Hawaii and my Aunt followed all Hawaiian traditions by coordinating the amazing Nonosina dancers and routines into the evening,” exclaimed the bride. “This was her gift, but also a blessing for the marriage.”

You’ll no doubt be swept away by this one.
