Dearborn, MI Indian Wedding by Ravin Bhandari Photography

Hey dolls! Today, we are off to Dearborn, Michigan for a romantic Indian wedding, courtesy of Ravin Bhandari Photography & Imprint Cinema. Jaya & Vivek met in college at Saint Louis University about a decade before their wedding. Jaya says, "We became best friends, and somewhere along the way our friendship blossomed into mutual love." Who wouldn't want to marry their best friend, right girls?! Let's kick things off with the pre-wedding celebrations - the mehndi & sangeet parties! Maharani Jaya looks beautiful in her turquoise & gold ensemble as she shows off her intricate mehndi design. She tops that off with a gorgeous pink & gold lengha for her sangeet bash. She looks like a goddess as she performs on the dance floor. There is so much more to come from this magical day of which The Event Planner Inc planned & designed! For now, see more of the pre-wedding partying in the gallery!

From the bride, on hair & makeup:

"I knew that i wanted to have my hair down and more casual for the mehndi and in different elegant up dos for the sangeet and reception. I looked at hundreds of pictures on Pinterest and in bridal magazines. I picked 2 or 3 that I liked. One had a dramatic side part and front swoop for the reception. I showed these to our hair stylist, Raquelle at Todd's Room in Birmingham, Mi. She practiced the hair styles, we made a few modifications, and volla! Jesse, our makeup artist from Todd's room, is truly amazing with his colors and pallets. I showed him pictures of my outfits, and  he knew exactly which colors, style, and dramatic flair to add for each event. He was so precise with every brush stroke. He even touched up the boys' eyes so they looked even more handsome in the pictures!"

Stay tuned for the bride getting ready for her big day!

San Diego, CA Sri Lankan - Tibetan Wedding by Matei Horvath Photography

Matei Horvath Photography now gives us a beautiful glimpse at all the fun that was had at the California reception which takes place at the Estancia La Jolla. One thing this wedding has been full of, is ENTERTAINMENT! Every ceremony is filled with music and dancing and Cherie and Janaka's reception is no exception. Not only did My DJs keep the dance floor crowded all night, but the couple even had LA Follies perform! I hear the guests loved the performance to pieces! All in all, what a lovely couple and what a beautiful wedding! Relive every moment, from the very beginning, in the gallery!

San Diego, CA Sri Lankan - Tibetan Wedding by Matei Horvath Photography

Welcome back, my lovelies! Feast your eyes on the divine decor at this royal reception which takes place at the luxurious Estancia La Jolla in Southern California! The amazing Matei Horvath Photography shares with us a darling display of all the elegant details. I adore the floral centerpieces of rich pastel shades of cream, pink and lemon chiffon roses by Lupita's Flowers. The sweetheart stage is richly encapsulated with a gorgeous array of flowers. The four-tier champagne-colored cake, which looks to me very reminiscent of the flapper era, is beautifully enveloped in pearls and lace. I always appreciate the tiny details such as the engraved spatula and monogrammed dance floor. It's those personalized touches that really capture what the day is truly about — Cherie & Janaka. Check out even more of the reception decor in the gallery!

San Diego, CA Sri Lankan - Tibetan Wedding by Matei Horvath Photography

Prepare yourselves to be blown away by vibrant images by Matei Horvath Photography of Cherie & Janaka's Tibetan ceremony in Southern California. While the Sri Lankan ceremony centered around subtle shades of whites, pinks and yellows, the Tibetan wedding is filled with richer and more vibrant hues, such as reds & blues. The couple relied on Concepts Event Design for all their rental needs to help make their wedding vision come true. From buddhist statues to the portrait of the Dalai Lama, the scene is perfectly set. And I must say that these adorable lovebirds look beautifully festive in their colorful garb. I hear this twinkling twosome even had Tsering Dorjee Bawa playing traditional, Tibetan music to enchant the guests. There's still so much more to come, until then, see more of this Tibetan wedding wonder in the gallery!

San Diego, CA Sri Lankan - Tibetan Wedding by Matei Horvath Photography

Greetings, my darlings! Today, the highly-talented Matei Horvath Photography and Avec Lumiere Productions bring us a unique fusion wedding that celebrates Sri Lankan and Tibetan cultures. Let's first check out the beautiful Sri Lankan ceremony which takes place at the palatial Estancia La Jolla in Southern California! I heard this venue is a favorite location for the most romantic weddings in San Diego! And this is very evident in these stunning images of the lush outdoor garden and native citrus trees. Betty Blue Events helped the lovely Maharani plan all the amazing details of her wedding. Speaking of the bride, Cherie looks exquisite in her gold gown. Her natural, yet shimmery makeup paired with her side bun by Vanity Belle is perfect for the occasion. And get this, the precious mandap decorated by white, yellow and pink luscious flowers is the family's own! And what a celebration. We've got Sri Lankan dancers and drummers entertaining the guests and there's even flying doves provided by Your Dove of Love! How incredibly romantic! There's so much more to come, but for now, see more of the big day in the gallery!
