3 Signature Drinks: Sunset in Banaras

Caterer: Ishinia
Very prominent and established Restaurant and Caterers. Their ability to fuse what is and what was is just out of this world. We took popular food items such as Tacos and gave them an Indian flair by creating ‘Kolkata Tacos’ and so forth.

Makeup Artist: Ariana
Using her Afghani heritage, Ariana is able to do her magic and make any girl look like royalty!

Stationary: Inky Design
Working mainly with a Non-Southasian clientele this was a project Sara Purdon took on without any hesitation. The results as you can see were just lovely! My vision of a Sunset in Banaras came to life using Sara’s artistic expertise with all her signage and invitation cards.

Henna: Poonam
Poonam comes from a Bangladeshi background, but her talent in Henna is just breathtaking.
