Carats & Cake Spotlight: Destination Indian Wedding Weekend for Shantha and Aneesh

The Pavilion at Carriage Farm is always thrilled to host Indian weddings at our Raleigh, NC venue. The multi-day, often multi-cultural wedding celebrations are vibrant and filled with joyous traditions. The May 2021 wedding of Shantha and Aneesh was such an occasion…and wow was it incredible! We are thrilled to share with you (and to be featured in) a recent Carats & Cakes Spotlight, “Destination Indian Wedding Weekend for Shantha and Aneesh.” In the article, they delve into the trend of multi-day wedding celebrations—and how the couples make each event uniquely special.

Of course we were dressed up by an incredible group of talented vendor professionals. Knowing her experience in South Asian weddings, we recommended the trusted eye of coordinator Harmony Weddings & Events to lead. Along with a team of more than 40 amazing vendors, a weekend to remember bloomed.

Read an excerpt from the “Destination Indian Wedding Weekend” article:

“The Pavilion at Carriage Farm, about 30 minutes south of the city, was selected for its serene setting, expansive outdoor space and privacy, and their ability to accommodate the Indian elements required of the day—throwing rice, having a fire, doing a baraat (the groom’s procession), etc.

“Aneesh values outdoor space and he wanted a unique venue that wasn’t a ballroom or hall, but one that had character. We had some events at the hotel because one thing that was important to us was convenience for our guests, and we did not want them to have to travel off-site for every event. We also wanted to make every part of the weekend enjoyable for guests, so instead of having a bus, we had trolleys, which were extensions of the events. The party continued on the trolleys!” —Shantha, bride
