A 2021 Look-Back!
Happy New Year! It is officially 2022! Before we begin today's blog topic, we'd like to first send all of our love and best wishes to each one of our followers for a prosperous and fortuitous new year. We hope 2022 has incredible things in store for each one of you! For our team, 2021 has been a year full of hope, light, and excitement.
Following the start of the pandemic in March 2020, many of our brides & grooms were led with the heartbreaking decision to postpone their wedding events to the following year, which meant for a quiet 2020 with less events than we had initially strived for. It was truly a tough year for all - but, once 2021 rolled around, we were approached with newly scheduled events for the upcoming year, in addition to ones previously scheduled for the year prior and pushed forward. We were blessed to have been able to pick up business again and continue to do what we love for the clients we cherish during this unprecedented time.
Despite it being a challenge to return to a faster pace while adjusting to the current circumstances in the world, this year has instilled in us a new sense of hope for the future and a newfound strength to overcome any hurdle that comes our way - and we will never let such interfere with making our brides' & grooms' decor visions come to life for their most special day.
With that being said, we thank all of our amazing clients that we have had the pleasure of working with this year. Today, we'd like to do a recap of a number of events that our Exclusive Events team had the honor of being a part of in 2021, specifically one event per each month of the year. Though we won't showcase every single event, we would like to use this blog post to convey our love and appreciate for each and every client that has chosen Exclusive Events and stuck by our team.

Allow us to begin with January! Within the first two weeks following the start of the new year, our team headed to Glen Cove, NY to prepare floral arrangements for our bride & groom's wedding day at the Glencove Gurdwara.
Using a white hydrangea base, we placed blush roses, fresh white lilies, and additional floral fillers. All of such contained warm, bright pastels, which was the perfect way to bring beautiful light to a new and hopeful year.

This beauty of a Sangeet stage was nothing short of pure magic. Our team prepared this at-home Sangeet decor design for a very special couple!

For our bride & groom, Varun & Shweta, we brought to life their bright wedding mandap for their big day at the Crest Hollow Country Club! This custom design consisted of silk peach and white drapings, silk floral knots to tie it back, and an additional complimenting rose-filled floral bar across the top! Pairing well with the floral tones of their ceremony, our team provided their reception decor with similar arrangements!

Just a few weeks later, our team came back to the Crest Hollow Country Club - this time, for Ruchica & Aditya's special wedding day!
First, we prepared the couple's custom ceremonial mandap on the venue's beautiful outdoor property! In accordance with the beautiful weather and shining sun, their mandap was brought together using warm pastels of white & pink floral arrangements, along with a green moss wall and a golden Ganesha to complete the special space! Of course, their wedding aisle was adorned with white pillars and complimenting round pieces!
We topped off their day with a custom reception stage & wedding cake, both containing bright shades of purple & white that simply take our breath away.

Now onto August! Continuing on with the previous wedding designs, we most certainly kept with the beautiful vibrant theme!
Based upon inspiration photos from our bride & groom, this custom space was a bright, modern take of a traditional Sangeet stage for Shravani & Bryan! We used asymmetrical silk draping along the backdrop, while their floral arrangements stunned the space with their vibrant tones. For their centerpieces, we used a chic terrarium with complimenting silk florals to dazzle up their guests' dining tables. Check out our blog post here, where we show more from this fabulous Sangeet celebration!

In the beginning weeks of September, we travelled to the dreamy venue of Fox Hollow, where we joined Samavia & Atif for their beautiful wedding reception!
This venue contained the right amount of natural light to brighten up each aspect of the couple's reception decor. From their stage, made up of natural green and white tones with a modern design, to their white orchid centerpieces that made up their guests' tables, every inch of this room was simply magic.

Where do we start? To exemplify the grandeur of this occasion, our team brought in only the most fitting of decor details. Adorned with white asymmetrical arrangements, our shimmering candle-wall made up their starlight backdrop, while decor pieces of golden accents shone across this spectacular space.
