Today we received an email from one of our favorite wedding stationery merchants, Wedding Paper Divas, sending us to their Real Wedding blog that features the vibrant, Indian wedding of Jasmit (Jesse) and Deepika, at the Hyatt Manchester Grand, in San Diego, California.

Wedding Paper Divas did not indicate what wedding invitation the couple chose which is especially surprising since the company has quite a nice selection of invitations whose designs reflect this rich and graphic culture. Here are a few of our favorites.
