We’re almost to the first party. My experiences in Goa were too enchanting not to share. The stage is set. The Leela Goa was the perfect host for the festivities to follow. Next stop, the first event of the wedding, The Beach Party. Until then, here’s The Leela Goa, an enchanted hotel on The Arabia Sea in Goa, India.
Bridget created these beautiful garlands to adorn the entry promenade offerings.
Again, nothing like a Coke in the heat.
The Leela Goa has its own greenhouse on the grounds. It was the perfect place for Bridget to keep the plants she had gotten at local nurseries to use in the parties. And the head gardener was kind enough to care for them until they were needed for the festivities.
Moss-encrusted coconut shells which they loaned to us for use in the Pool Party arrangements.
The drummers for the arriving guests.
The Mother of the Bride’s painted hands.
Love these light strands lighting the way to the beach party.
