Fresno, CA Indian Wedding by Ethnic Essence

Los Angeles, CA Indian Wedding by Erin Shimazu Photography

It's a lovely day in L.A. and our happy couple are about to tie the knot, but first, the groom has to make his way in on horseback, courtesy of Enchanted Carriage, for the baraat procession. Check out the vibrant and amazing floral and decor details from this ceremony. The mandap is simple and breathtaking all at once and all of the floral elements are just out-of-this-world. Erin Shimazu Photography really snapped up some beautiful shots from this unforgettable event, and seriously though, how sweet is the final shot of our bride's beautifully mehndied hand (expertly done by Henna Dil Se) in her groom? There's plenty more to see in the gallery, so make sure you check it out.

On the wedding style:

"We began designing our wedding based on two ideas.


1. Vishal wanted to use Chicago Bears (blue & orange) colors because he's from Chicago


2. Eswari's favorite story is Alice in Wonderland so she wanted to incorporate some subtle whimsical hints of this classic storybook

For the wedding ceremony we kept with the Alice in Wonderland theme by doing an outdoor garden ceremony and creating a mandap made of vines and flowers. For the ceremony we went with the traditional orange, magenta, and red colors. We decided we could weave the orange into the evening to meet Vishal's requirements of using blue and orange. We did the reception indoors and used blue dyed orchids and orange tulips to create the blue and orange theme that vishal wanted. To weave in the Alice in Wonderland theme, we created signature cocktails (Aviation aka The Looking Glass & Old Fashioned aka the Oldhatter), Eat Me tags for the Donuts (in lieu of a cake to keep it whimsical), Drink Me tags for the champagne, and a whimsical set up for the escort cards. Each escort card was created out a playing card and then all of the escort cards were inserted into a bed of wheat grass accented with flowers."

Don't miss out on the amazing reception details coming up next, my dears!

Los Angeles, CA Indian Wedding by Erin Shimazu Photography

Welcome back, dolls! Erin Shimazu Photography took some super amazing portraits of our bride and groom and their wedding party. Today's Maharani looks super in her bridal lengha, and the detailed shot showing off her mehndi by Henna Dil Se is just beautiful. The groom is striking in his clean, white suit, and his entourage of groomsmen are smokin' in their traditional sherwanis. I'm loving the magenta bridesmaid's saris with their delicate, silver accents. Looks like everything is coming together in the fashion department for this memorable event. In just a bit, we'll check out the baraat, and the groom's ride by Enchanted Carriage, plus some great floral and decor details from the ceremony. For now, head to the gallery

The proposal story:

"Eswari headed out that morning to meet her friend, Tana, for brunch at John O'Groats. However, when she arrived at the restaurant she found Vishal standing there with a mischevious smile and a table for two. Eswari began to suspect that Vishal was going to propose, but Vishal insisted that he just wanted to suprise her and take her out since she had a stressful week. Eswari, confused yet intrigued, played along and decided to see where this day would go.

After a delicious brunch, Vishal did not propose.... Instead, he asked Eswari to get in her car and meet him at the restaurant where his parents first met her. Shortly after, they both met at Ugo's in Culver City and spent the afternoon chatting over cocktails. After they got the check, he asked Eswari to hop in her car and meet him on the corner of Westwood and Pico. Eswari, still confused, found herself at Guitar Center where Vishal bought her a keyboard stand that he had promised to get her over a year ago so she could play his keyboard. Touched by the gesture, Eswari decided that Vishal had set up this whole day just for the keyboard stand and wasn't going to propose after all.

However, the day wasn't quite done yet. Vishal had been telling Eswari all day that he was planning to cook a nice dinner at home later that night, and that it would be fun to grab dessert before hand. So they got in the car, but Vishal wouldn't tell Eswari where they were headed for dessert. They pulled up to Sarah the Wine Bar, one of Eswari's favorite restaurants, but the sign said it was closed. Eswari was fixated on the fact that the restaurant was closed and Vishal had to force her to go inside only to find a table all set with a beautiful arrangement of flowers. Before Eswari could comprehend what was going on, Vishal dropped on one knee and proposed!"

See you in just a bit ladies!

Our bride's love story:

"The night started off uneventfully. Vishal stopped off at a local bar, The Wellesbourne, on his way home after a long day. While waiting for his roommate, Darren, to meet him, Vishal tried to strike up a conversation with a beautiful Indian girl, who promptly did not notice. Eswari was seemingly too focused on her friends and getting her wine.


Even after Vishal's roommate got there, he kept trying to make eye contact with Eswari. However, she stubbornly continued to be clueless. Twenty minutes went by before Eswari finally noticed a guy with a charming smile sitting at the bar and checking her out. Her friend, Tana, promptly forced her to go on back up to the bar, order a drink, and see what would happen.


Vishal teased Eswari about getting another glass of wine so soon, and before they knew it two hours had passed and they were clearly hitting it off. The chemistry was instant! It took her about an hour to figure out he was Indian, but it took him about a month to figure out how to say her name right, so we’ll call that even. Like a gentleman, Vishal asked her to write down her number (and name, spelled phonetically) on a red napkin, and a week later they went on their first date."

I'll be back with some gorgeous wedding portraits, so don't be a stranger!

Grand Cayman Indian Destination Wedding by Z Molu Photography

We've finally reached the momentous occasion of the lovebirds uniting in holy matrimony, courtesy of Z Molu Photography! As the blushing bride walks down the elegant staircase of The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman Great Lawn in her lovely lengha, we see the groom patiently waiting to be wed at the regal mandap. You can just see all the love in his eyes as his Maharani puts the ring on his finger. Such a sweet and tender moment that's beautifully captured on film! Her mendhi design, done by Shilpa Tagalpallewar, looks so intricate and elegant. As newlyweds, I'm sure these two partied all night long to the musical stylings of Empire Entertainment! And I must say, everyone (including me) needs to visit the Cayman islands just so we can see the best of what the Carribean has to offer! I must relive every moment in this gallery!

It's perfectly elegant and such a romantic setting for true love to blossom into wedded bliss! The floral pieces, by the resort florist, Debra Kettler, are classicly timeless. I just cannot get over how breathtaking the Cayman islands are!
