An Indian Wedding at Mercury Hall
The amazing colors and patterns incorporated into Aditi + Field's wedding have us drooling! Field rode in on a horse, they had a floral decorated stage for their nuptials, and all their guests were dressed to the nines. There is nothing to dislike! We chatted with Aditi briefly to hear about her big day. Enjoy the pictures and her sweet answers!
1. HOW DID YOU AND Field MEET?
My husband and I met at UT when we were both freshmen in 2009. My husband lived a few doors down from my high school friends' room where I would hang out. We first met when he walked into their room one afternoon; I found out he was in a math class that I was having trouble with, so I asked him for homework help. Turns out he's really smart; the rest is history!
2. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF WEDDING PLANNING?
Our favorite part of wedding planning was coming up with fun ways to make the event our own. We didn't need the day to be extravagant but we wanted it to be ours--having fun, realistic plans such as renting a snow cone truck, having bright, bold florals, shipping in my husband's handmade cornhole sets from Maryland, and customizing our own centerpieces made it the party we wanted to share with our loved ones.
3. WHAT’S ONE PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’D GIVE TO BRIDES PLANNING A WEDDING AT MERCURY HALL?
My one piece of advice for brides planning a wedding is to get a wedding coordinator! We did as much of the planning on our own and didn't have an enormous budget, but a day of coordinator was literally priceless. There is no price you can place on being able to be present on a day that means so much and has taken so much work to put together. There are so many moving pieces you will plan for and so many others you will never think of until the last minute; a day of coordinator will take care of all the little things you shouldn't have to on the big day! You will need and cherish that space so that you can enjoy you and your partner and all your guests.
4. MY FAVORITE PART OF MERCURY HALL IS __________.
Mercury Hall was truly the perfect venue for us--it is a piece of beautiful, central Texas quietude reminiscent of my Austin childhood. My advice, specifically for Mercury Hall, would be to make use of both indoor and outdoor spaces! We loved the oak trees!
