Today is like Christmas morning for me! The incredible Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty has featured Mallika and Steve’s wedding today! The photographer, Suthi Picotte of Picotte Photography, and I have been sitting on the images until we got word that this wedding was going to be published on Style Me Pretty. Now I can share!

Mallika and Steve’s wedding was May 31, 2009 and was the LAST wedding to be held at Eucalyptus Lane in Ventura. They had an original wedding date in August but were told in March that Eucalyptus Lane was shutting down and they had one date left. They hired me in a panic to help them pull together their wedding and give them the confidence that they needed. Mallika designed the wedding with the help of the incredibly talented Holly Vesecky of Holly Flora. Mallika grew up in Hindu /Yoga Commune and Steve grew up Catholic. They combined their beliefs and had a touching ceremony that included a red string strung around the entire ceremony site (I had the privilege of tying the string after Mallika walked down the aisle) that was later cut up and tied to the guests wrists as a symbol of the community they created.

For images right away, you can see the pictures at Style Me Pretty. I’ll post some here shortly.
