Anytime you put the words Ritz Carlton in front of Laguna Beach you know you are in for a real treat. This venue is nothing short of utterly gorgeous, and the clear day literally makes the photographs take my breath away.  But, and this is a huge but, the thing that makes Sonal and Amrish’s outdoor ceremony insanely beautiful is the edited eye of Smita Mothindra, from Ethnic Essence.  There are two things that cause the uber- impact. The first is the unique color palette of orange and blue that ties in so well to that big, blue sky meets clear, blue ocean background. And, the second is the detail.  From start to finish our bride, Sonal, & her planner/designer Smita, infused orange into every important little detail.

From Smita : The perfect orange sunset over calm blue waters with gentle white surf was the inspiration for Sonal & Amrish’s ceremony. The beauty of this outdoor setting was that the Mandap was completely in-sync with the surrounding environment. 
The orange embellished draping was stunning against the perfect blue sky while the open design welcomed the sight of the gentle waves in the background.

Don’t you just love this get away Lamborghini?! And, it is in orange, of course!  As fast as that car is, Amrish will have to wait until tomorrow to take his bride away on Maharani!
