Welcome, wedding lovers! We're starting this week off with the most stunning Indian wedding event, captured by Lin & Jirsa Photography at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Santa Susana, California! This wondrous and awe-inspiring event was planned and designed by the uber talented folks over at Bridal and Event Lounge, who also took charge of all the floral and decor details. Let's meet today's blushing Indian bride, Riddhi, as she gets ready for her big day with the help of hair and makeup extraordinaire Lulu Nguyen of Dolled Up by Lulu — a SoCal bridal fave! The beauty expert gave Maharani Riddhi the most gorgeous curls and ruby red lips to go with her incredible wedding lengha by Kunal Anil Tanna! We love her lace skirt and entire look from top-to-bottom! Today's groom, Amish, complemented his wife-to-be handsomely in his ivory sherwani and the happy couple made the perfect pair in their first look portraits. You can see even more memorable highlights as the bride got ready and view the rest of her and Amish's pics in the complete gallery!

Maharani Riddhi on how she met the Raja of her dreams, Amish:

"We met when we were teenagers at a family gathering since we had some common family friends. However,  we lost touch for 10 years and re-met when we were 25 in Los Angeles. We started dating shortly thereafter and we knew there was something there. After 5 years and some long distance in between, we got engaged and married!"

On her Raja's super romantic proposal:

"I am a major romantic by nature, but my husband is a little less so! However, he really surprised me for the proposal. He invited all our closest family and friends to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles (where we had one of our first dates) and had them hide on the balcony. He then had his brother's fiancee bring me to the Getty on the premise of another separate event so I had no idea anything was happening that day. Then, as I'm walking down the garden in the Getty, he pops out of nowhere in the middle of the Getty garden and gets down on one knee to propose. It was a perfect Los Angeles day and all my closest family/friends were on the balcony cheering us on, along with every tourist at the Getty that day!"

On her dream wedding lengha:

"I spent A LOT of time on Pinterest figuring out exactly what my dream lenghas would look like. I then went to India and worked with a close friend and an up and coming designer in Mumbai, Kunal Tanna, to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. He is an exceptional designer with a really great background and made my thoughts about what the dress would be come to reality."

On her hair and makeup:

"I used Pinterest a lot and this was another way I got so many ideas for the hair/makeup. I ended up using Dolled Up by Lulu for my make up/ hair artist and it worked out great."

Meet me back here later today to witness one of the most breathtaking wedding ceremonies to hit our blog!
