Martha & Kush | Colorful Wedding Reception at the Rickhouse
Wedding: 31 August 2019 | Posted: 19 January 2020
In case you didn't know this about us already, we are all about everyone rocking the wedding experience that is right for them. Maybe it's a big blow-out party, maybe it's an intimate mountain elopement, maybe it's a backyard barbecue, maybe it's the courthouse on a Thursday morning. There's no wrong way to get married.
Martha & Kush got married about a year prior to their wedding reception, and held the reception in their newly adopted city, our very own dear Durham! The day was full of fun and color, and was a very present testament to how smoothly a day can run with an awesome vendor team who all know and love each other. (See vendor list below!) Their coordinator, Heather, and their floral designer, Erica, ran wild with Martha & Kush's favorite colors and, combined with the amazing lightscape created by Get Lit, the effect was stunning. It's no secret that we love color, so it should be no surprise that these are some of our favorite details ever.
Once all their guests had arrived and been seated, Martha & Kush recreated their vow exchange for everyone, hugged, smooched, and got down to the business of mingling, partying, and eating. Our good buddy Willis was busy all night spinning not only the best in Western wedding jams, but an incredible variety of Indian music, too, as requested (and often as hastily-Youtubed-and-downloaded) by guests and family. As far as we know, the party kept going even once everyone left the Rickhouse, a testament to how much fun Martha & Kush's family and friends had celebrating with them.
We are so thrilled to have had the opportunity to capture this incredible celebration, and we with Martha & Kush every imaginable happiness in their marriage! Enjoy a selection of our favorites from the day here, and wish them well in the comments!
