[Unofficial] Tips for Getting Your Wedding Published:
Step 1: Work with Hummingbird Bridal and Events to plan a series of gorgeous and highly personalized details for your wedding day.
Step 2: Allow Hummingbird to execute these details flawlessly as your photographer captures all of the details of the day.
Step 3: In a fog of illness, just days after your wedding, wedding planner will submit these gorgeous details to Boston Magazine, where she has graciously been asked to help highlight new and emerging trends. Wedding planner is very sick by this stage and is probably typing crazy things. God only know what was actually submitted.
Step 4: Success! Published!
In all seriousness, a big HUGE thank you to Boston Magazine for asking us to be a part of their trend-focused report on cool and inventive seating chart ideas!

Hummingbird Bridal was once again extremely honored to be featured in the Boston Globe, this time for an article titled “How To Plan an Instagram-Worthy Wedding.” And while we are very excited to be called out for planning weddings that are “Instagram-worthy", but to be perfectly honest we never set out to plan weddings for the purpose of making them Instagram-worthy. We set out to create weddings that are unique and deeply personalized and different from any other wedding. It just so happens that when you do this, those weddings are also eye-catching and beautiful and contain amazing surprises and sick details.Read More

So many thanks to Stop Go Love Videography for this absolutely gorgeous video recap of Amira and Karan’s Rehearsal Dinner Celebration and Wedding Day at Club Getaway in Kent, CT this past September. We are full-on “ugly crying” happy tears over this beautiful video!
Amira and Karan’s Rehearsal Dinner Celebration featured an amazing umbrella installation across the ceiling from Powerstation Events (you’ve got to see it to believe it) and after this lovely rehearsal dinner (featuring 150 guests) concluded, we cleared out the tent and started over with a completely different wedding day design featuring garlands of greenery from Whiled Flowers, a 10-piece band from 45 Riots, strands of warm Edison lights and multiple outfit changes from Amira and Karan.
I want to do a Bharat at every event now! OMG, so fun!!!
