Happy Monday, darlings! We're kicking off this week of wedding wonder with a fabulous California event at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel and it is absolutely over-the-top sensational. First off, we meet up with Greycard Photography in the bridal suite where Maharani Akanksha is slipping into a breathtaking ruby lengha choli paired with glittering gold bangles. Oscar Makeup ensures she is princess precious with flawless hair and makeup—a bold red lip is the perfect complement!—and her jewelry is as gorgeous as it gets. While Robles Video Productions zooms in for close-ups of our beauty, PinkRockEvents, LLC and Square Root Designs put the finishing touches on the ceremony scene. I can't wait to see the mandap! Until all the guests are seated for this spectacular affair, I'll be in the gallery!
From the bride:
"My husband had been planning the proposal for months. We had a long distance relationship, I was visiting him in California when he popped the question. He took me to his hometown temple for a prayer but little did I know he had reserved the whole temple for us. We were performing a prayer with the priest and the priest told me to close my eyes. The priest gave him a plate with rose petals and the ring. When I opened my eyes, my husband was on one knee with the ring in his hand. It was truly the happiest moment of my life. It made it even more special when all of his family and my mom came out. They had been hiding in the temple the entire time. There were a lot of tears of joy. And the surprises didn't end there. We went around Orange County for the private helicopter ride and then on a beautiful gondola ride at Balboa Island. It was amazing. And to top it all, when we came home from a romantic dinner, my mom, dad, and both of my brothers flew in from the east coast to surprise me. My husband had been planning this with my family for months. It was a day full of the sweetest surprises. All of my family flew in that weekend to celebrate our engagement. We had a surprise roka ceremony the following day. It was a magical weekend."
What a dream! See you at the ceremony up next!
