This wedding is the epitome of the best a Seattle summer has to offer. Tons of sunshine, warm golden light and lush greenery come together to make one couple's big day positively perfect. If we're talking perfection, can we take a moment or two to admire the floral designs by Finch and Thistle? Because if I could dream in flowers, I'm pretty sure this is what my dreams would be made of.
Over the past 10 years, the South Asian population in the Puget Sound region has nearly tripled, creating a demand—especially when it comes to weddings—for local vendors who cater to South Asian couples. Although traditions vary from India to Pakistan, Sri Lanka to Bangladesh, most South Asian wedding celebrations are family-filled, extravagantly colorful and festive multiple-day affairs with rich spiritual underpinnings.
With wedding season upon us, that also means bridal showers are aplenty. Whether you're tasked with planning, or are just a guest, bringing a little homemade something for the table is an appreciative gesture that won't be overlooked. If you're scouring Pinterest for something that says gourmet but is easy enough for even a kitchen novice to tackle, scour no more. These Fancy Pants Grapefruit Slices from Mackenzie Schieck's blog, Pine and Crave are just the ticket.
