Alanna and Vihang's wedding theme can be summed up into three words: purple, dragons, and redwoods. After a sweet family-focused Friday ceremony at San Francisco City Hall, Alanna and Vihang celebrated with their friends with a party in Oakland's Redwood Regional Park.

For both days, everyone was encouraged to wear purple as it's Alanna's favorite color. On Saturday, Alanna's sister led a simple ceremony inviting friends to share a few words about the couple. The guests blew bubbles to kick off the reception and everyone was invited to a potluck picnic including Indian curries, rice, samosas, and lots of delicious homemade sweets. And of course, drinks from Alanna and Vihang's purple dragon goblets!

  1. The dress is so pretty and love the style and love love the purple, because it's also my favorite color!!! I also like the ceremony being small at the courthouse and a good size outdoor reception at a park. This one in my humble opinion, fucking rocks!!!!
