Beautiful rich colors, vibrant flowers and aromatic spices filled the air at Shyamlee and Ari's wedding this past summer. Over the years we have hosted a few Hindu ceremonies and are always in awe of the deep spirituality and communal bond that these events evoke. The photo layouts from Beth Photography show just how unique and detailed this event was. From beaded saris to henna painting and the ceremony Mandap you can get a real taste of the labor of love that was put forth by these families.
Ari (the Bridegroom) arrives at the the party and takes part in the Var Swagatam where he is greeted by the Bride's mother and enters the wedding ceremony area.
After entering the ceremony Ari takes part in the Ganesh Puja, a prayer to the Lord Ganesh that brings a blessing to the Bride and Groom and removes all obstacles in their married life.
As part of the ceremony the couple exchanges garlands as a greeting to each other. Fire is a sacred part of the Hindu ceremony and is blessed to invoke health, wealth, prosperity, serves to keep witness over the couple throughout the ceremony.
The ceremony brought the family together with the toe ring ceremony with the Bride's sister-in-law, Aashirvaad blessing with the Priest, parents, grandmother, sisters, brother and elders.
After the ceremony guests joined the couple for a more traditional wedding reception with dinner and dancing. The vibrant colors and richness were carried into the space with the use of our large party lanterns in shades of gold, red, green purple and blue. The elegant floral arrangements also popped with their jewel tone shades.

Yes the Holiday season is here and it is time to scramble to the good ole' recipe box for some tasty tidbits. This year our gift to you is the gift of sharing. Here today are some of our favorite recipes from our Christmas cocktail party. We hope you give them a try and that they are such a hit that you add them to your family recipe box. Happy Eating!
The Cocktail Party
For Leona's side of the family we traditionally have a get together on Christmas Eve. As everyone is very busy with final preparations we try to keep things simple with appetizers and soups. This way no one is over stuffed for the evening and they are free to snack as they like (in between games and puzzles).
Click on the following links for the recipes you see below.
Bacon Wrapped Scallops- This is my personal favorite. Nothing is better than a little surf and turf to get the holiday started. The spicy mayo will be a new twist for this year. As another option make some with water-chestnuts for those who like a little crunch.
Piggyback Shrimp- I think Tatiana was the first one to try this BBQ recipe out. We originally found it in a Taste of Colorado cookbook years ago. This is a good cooking companion with the bacon scallops above as it too goes under the broiler so no need for multiple ovens and setting to keep an eye on.
Wendy's Squash Soup- In our family we have to trick each other into eating our fruits and veggies. This soup (while not light on the calories) does the trick. It is delicious and enjoyed by our family young and old.
Buffalo Bites- This a new one I think we will try this year for G-Bob. He just loves buffalo wings and this is a fun and easy at home take on the classic.
JUST A REMINDER!!!

Tana, with Lionscrest here! Just got some great photos in from Marsha with Life Exposed Photography. She shot these at the Annual Spring Bridal Showcase. I love the way the color scheme played out with shades of pinks set off by the polk-a-dots and stripes.
The Lanterns pictured below are just one of the many decor items we offer to our clients at the Manor.
Also, check out these pics from Booth 66 Photo Booths. Everyone had a lot of fun being silly.
