Mala & Praveen’s Bangkok wedding provided a spectacular, unique challenge for us; five pages in each invitation for three ceremonies with two varying designs (his and hers). Each set of invitations came with a cover, invitation, wedding program, mehendi event (painting on the hands and feet), and Sangeet (a big party on the eve of the wedding). We love working on indulgent projects with lavish detail and the cultural mix Mala and Praveen’s wedding afforded us gave us a swathe of vibrant color, interesting tropical shapes, and an abundance of life to capture.

Mala & Praveen's cover combined Ganesh as a nod to their traditional celebration and the tropical touches of Thailand, where they'll be celebrating.

We hoped to infuse Mala & Praveen's Sangeet invitation with as much fun, movement and spirit as the wedding night itself.

The big day, complete with golds and reds, fire boxes and knotted cloths. We've never wanted to crash a wedding so badly.

The wedding program. This came in two formats depending on whether the guest was invited by Mala or Praveen.
