Emily + Vishal

October 14th, 2022

Emily and Vishal's Autumn wedding at Dover Hall unfolded against the stunning backdrop of a two-tiered garden ceremony, with three magnificent flower arches that mirrored the arches inside our Estate. The venue bloomed with a breathtaking array of florals, boasting a palette of reds, pinks, yellows, and oranges, thoughtfully arranged by Photosynthesis Florals, creating a vibrant and picturesque setting for the celebration perfectly captured by Alex Tenser Photography. Following the ceremony, guests were treated to a delightful and interactive passport cocktail hour game, ensuring that the festivities began with joy and excitement. Passed canapés included mouthwatering New Zealand Lamb Chops, Maine Lobster Rolls, and Tuna Poke, leaving everyone's taste buds wanting more. Adding a personal touch, Emily's signature drink, the Cucumber Gimlet, and Vishal's signature drink, the Chocolate Walnut Old Fashioned, allowed guests to enjoy bespoke cocktails tailored to the couple's taste. Before the reception, the couple shared an intimate moment in the venue's wine cellar, celebrating their nuptials in a private setting. As the evening continued, dinner was a culinary delight, featuring the succulent flavors of Braised Lamb Leg, perfectly Pan-Seared Sea Bass, and comforting Asparagus Risotto, delighting every palate. The planning and design of the wedding was handled by Swoon Soiree, ensuring that every detail was carefully curated to perfection. The celebration continued with espresso martinis, a feathered dress adding a touch of whimsy, sabered champagne, and twinkling lights setting a magical ambiance that enticed everyone to the packed dance floor.
