Elegant and prestigious, Siempre is a wedding venue in Utah known for curating unforgettable fairytale weddings. Located at the south end of Salt Lake Valley, Siempre’s breathtaking backdrop set the stage for this multicultural wedding day where South Asian culture merged with Western influence for a vibrant event filled with whimsy.
In keeping with South Asian wedding day tradition, a four-poster mandap awaited the bride and groom at the end of the altar. Accordingly, the structure is used to symbolize earth, air, fire, and water, which represents the spiritual energy surrounding the couple on the day of their wedding. Meanwhile, the wedding ceremony took place at Siempre’s secret garden terrace with sprawling views of Utah Valley. Swathed in marigolds, and vibrant florals, the mandap was, unquestionably, the focal point of the ceremony.
For the wedding featured below, floral hues further beckoned the blending of cultures. Marigolds, in particular, are a mainstay of Hindu weddings. Moreover, marigolds represent the sun and symbolize a blanket of positive energy that surrounds the couple as they are joined together in marriage. Furthermore, marigolds are also associated with Lord Vishnu & Goddess Lakshmi, from Hindu mythology. Wanting this wedding mainstay present on her wedding day, the bride also drew inspiration from vibrant hues of pink and yellow to add a touch of whimsy to her warm, traditional floral tones.

Florals for this Siempre Wedding in Utah were expertly hand-crafted through my sister company, Wild Earth Designs. Having a creative hand in the florals as well as the wedding day photography allowed the experience of the day to focus on a prestigious event for the bride and groom. One where wedding aisle florals were repurposed to decorate the grand stone staircase for sunset photos at Siempre. This allowed me to best arrange the florals in a way that beckoned the glowing light to bathe the bride and groom during their portraits.
In keeping with the multicultural significance of the day, the bride wore a traditional red lehenga before slipping on a corseted white bridal gown. The intricately embroidered lehenga was accented by bridal henna and complete with arms full of shimmering bangles. Conversely, the bride wore a white gown with a sheer corseted top and full ballroom-style skirting. Embellishments on the gown were organic vines, making a rhinestone-encrusted bridal headband in a delicate leaf pattern the perfect pairing.
As the brilliant sun set behind them in the distance, it was time for the bride and groom to take their seats at the sweetheart table. Bright orange-toned linens laid across the table with individual place settings and dinner menus awaiting each guest. Additionally, wedding ceremony florals were repurposed to create a floral nest displayed across the front of the sweetheart table. Undoubtedly creating an added touch of warmth.
