The big moment has arrived in Santa Barbara for this twinkling twosome to be wed, courtesy of San Jose Photography. The planning & design of this momentous day is all thanks to Percy Sales Events, who executes each detail flawlessly. The Tent Merchant does stunning work with draping! The sheer, white drapery cascading over the couple along with the gorgeous glass chandeliers is quite a sight to take in! The couple first has a Christian ceremony, followed by a Hindu wedding, and then they end with their own personal vows. It looks like everything came together perfectly.

From the bride, on the wedding style:
"I'm a typical Southern California girl, and I always wanted to get married on the beach. However, I didn’t want sand blowing onto our food, nor did I want to be indoors and have the typical formal ballroom wedding. I wanted to have the ocean breeze in my hair and be surrounded by bright colors that would complement the blues of the ocean-oranges, yellows, pinks, purples. Our venue was perfect-we were able to build a unique gold tent in an outdoor amphitheater right next to the water and were able to dance surrounded by crystals and chandeliers under the stars. With our wedding being in Santa Barbara, we were able to keep it small and intimate. Furthermore, the fact that it was an accessible destination wedding meant that all of our guests were in total vacation mode and were able to fully let go and enjoy the moment."
On the ceremony:
"Our ceremony was so special and meaningful. With Neal being Christian and me being Hindu, we had the unique opportunity to actually combine the ceremonies to symbolize the actual merging of our lives. We started out with the Christian ceremony, transitioned to the Hindu ceremony, and ended with us stating our own personal vows. The most magical part was having the Christian minister and Hindu priest pronounce us as husband and wife together, as it signified the joining of two different cultures and families."
