Harleen and Yuvi Grewal’s Elegant Wedding

Lovely to see pictures and hear stories of Harleen and Yuvi Grewal’s recent wedding in southern California, planned by Nikki and Madiha Khan of Exquisite Events. It is always a pleasure to work with Exquisite Events, with whom we have collaborated often to provide luxurious tented settings for the top Indian weddings in California.

On this occasion, the ceremony took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Westlake Village that has acres of lovely gardens, ideal for tenting. The interior of the tent was in cream with gold star print. Ornate cream large rosette scalloping and matching cream and honey glow gold drapes decorated the outside edge, with large Ajmer hanging lamps across the length of the 40 foot x 100 foot tent. The flowers were delightful, which, along with pink and orange cushions brought in color and texture. One aspect that particularly made the wedding stand out was a two rose petal drops from a helicopter as the groom arrived during the Baraat.

Over 600 guests attended the different events that comprised this very detail oriented, traditional, stylish and sophisticated Indian Wedding. The Mehndi and Sangeet were held at the bride’s father’s impressive home in Porter Ranch, where hot pink and spicy orange Pergolas set the scene.

All in all, it was a great success. Many congratulations to the beautiful bride and her groom!

Luxury Bar and Buffet tents for Summer Entertaining

We recently sent out a folder of Bar and Buffet tent images to our Catering Company clients in California, as shown in the gallery of images on this post. Excellent food, beautifully presented and professionally served, is one of the most important components to a successful party. One challenge that we rise to is how to make the Buffets and Bars fit the event – the theme, the aesthetic and the functional needs.

Raj Tents’ 10 ft square Pergola is the most popular buffet station tent as it is an ideal size and comes in many color and style combinations. The octagonal Pavilion (13 ft diameter) and its big brother, the Grand Pavilion (20 ft diameter), allow more space and as they are octagonal, they have more corners for drapes and lights. All are on heavy grade stainless steel frames that are self supporting, so they can be set up almost anywhere to frame Buffets and Bars and contribute to the décor and interest of events.

 

United Arab Emirates Embassy Parties

Last summer, Raj Tents was honored to be asked to provide luxury tenting for the Washington National Opera Ball. The annual ball is celebrated the end of the Opera’s season at the Kennedy Center with a luxurious evening of art and culture. Guests first enjoyed intimate dinners hosted at many embassies throughout the city, followed by a splendid party at the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates hosted by the UAE Ambassador to the United States, His Excellency Yousef Al Otaiba.

Elegant, cream Pergola tents were installed at the front of the Embassy to create a stunning entrance for guests. Raj Tents low lounge furniture made a thematic seating area with draping and lights.

In December, we are very glad to be asked back for a similar installation to mark the UAE’s 41st National Day, celebrating culture, heritage and partnerships with the United States. The clean, cream color-way accentuated the impressive architecture of the Embassy façade. Abundant white draping softened the installation and gave the tents a Middle Eastern flair set off against the blue skies.
