Lakeside wedding ceremony at Royal Ambassador
There are two usual options when booking an outdoor wedding at the Royal Ambassador Event Center: the Lakeside Gazebo and the Terrace Gazebo.
The Lakeside Gazebo is beautifully located at the bottom of stone steps in front of the scene lake at Royal Ambassador. Guests sit on tiered levels of grass, and the couple enters down a romantic stone path to the gazebo.
Sikh couples usually do not pick the Lakeside Gazebo. Sikh weddings require the Guru Granth Sahib to be higher than the guests; this is not possible in the Lakeside Gazebo since it is situated at the bottom of steps.
Outdoor Sikh weddings are Royal Ambassador are usually held at the Terrace Gazebo with a luscious green scenery.
Our client decided to have their outdoor Sikh wedding on the lawn at Royal Ambassador; this allowed them to have a lakeside view without the restrictions of the Lakeside Gazebo.
For their Sikh wedding decor, we had to bring in a structure for the palki sahib. We chose a clear mandap structure that would create an unobstructured view of the lake and a 360° view of the entire Sikh ceremony. In keep with the couple's theme, we created large arrangements with deep red flowers.
A Tented Sikh Wedding at Royal Ambassador
A tented Sikh wedding at Royal Ambassador is a unique way to host an outdoor wedding. Putting the tent on the lawn at Royal Ambassador gives you a beautiful view of the lake and still allows you to have a Sikh wedding. By choosing this option, you're not restricted to the Terrace Gazebo.
In addition, having a tent gives you more control over the elements.
Don't let the blue sky in these pictures fool you: it was a chilly October morning for an outdoor wedding. To keep their guests comfortable, the couple decided to put up a tent - and thank goodness they did! Though they hadn't imagined their outdoor Sikh wedding would take place in a tent, it was necessary to protect their wedding guests from the cold!
By having a tent, you also get some control over the temperature of your outdoor wedding. This couple ordered heaters for their tent for added comfort.
By choosing a nontraditional location for their outdoor Sikh wedding, the couple had to consider the flooring for their event. For this outdoor Sikh wedding, the flooring was created with duratrac tiles and covered in white sheets. We added some mats with a navy blue cover.
