A Festival Inspired Backyard Wedding: Visra + Chris

giant pink tent, wedding

Visra + Chris live on an amazingly beautiful property in Woodside, CA and wanted to share their love of their home and property with all their family and friends on their wedding day. These are two easy going people with fast paced jobs – he’s the VP of a little site called Facebook and she’s a filmmaker that travels around the world. They wanted a mellow burning man/concert type of celebration where guests camped on the property for 3 days which I completely love! “Tent city” was made up of numerous tents on the property and guests were welcomed to camp out for the weekend – Visra + Chris even had a special wedding night tent (the gorgeous pink tent above made of pink fabric + wood overlooking a mountain range where they put their bed and spent their wedding night “camping”!). Outdoor sinks with antique mirrors were set up along side the outdoor showers. Vintage rentals were also brought in to complete the homey and woodsy feel.

The most amazing part of the day had to be the triangular dining table. Visra + Chris spent 6 months with artist Drew Bennett designing + building the dining table for their 200+ guests. The idea was to have all the pieces connected so that their family and friends could sit down and share the dinner at one table. Their wedding also had fresh produce + oysters that were brought in for munching, mixologist’s mixed top notch cocktails, and 2 bands and DJ kept the party going into the wee hours of the morning. Visra + Chris truly had the wedding at home that they dreamed of…unlike any other. Big thanks to Jenny Kim Photo for the gorgeous photos + to the ladies of Sitting In A Tree for the wedding planning + design.

Instead of registering, Visra + Chris asked guests to bring an unwrapped book for their ever expanding collection. Guests shelved the books on a rustic bookshelf.
