The big moment is among us! Matei Horvath Photography guides us through Harpreet and Shagun's dual Sikh and Hindu ceremonies at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel in Southern California. Everyone, who received an invitation—designed by InviteInk, can sit back and enjoy all the wedding splendor. The blinged-out bride dons her precious pink lengha for the traditional Sikh wedding. Following their indoor nuptials, the Hindu union takes place outdoors where guests are seated on white Chiavari Chairs. Shagun takes my breath away as she walks down the aisle in a radiant red and gold lengha. After the twinkling twosome exchange their vows, and malas—by Aloha Island Lei, a majestic horse and carriage, provided by Enchanted Carriages, carries them off in true Cinderella fashion! Thanks to the meticulous planning and design of Elegant Events by Nutan, this day has been a fairy tale dream come true! See more details from this magical moment in the gallery!

From the bride, on the wedding style:

"I would say our wedding style is best described as "classic." We are both not the most adventurous people when it comes to style and would rather stay safe than venture out and do something crazy. Our color inspiration came from a shirt of mine that Harpreet likes which was teal in color. We both love that color and paired it with gold and hoped to use that our theme. We ended up only using those colors for the Sikh ceremony portion of the wedding."

Most enjoyable thing about wedding planning:

"I enjoyed shopping for outfits in India the most. The colors and varieties available in India were amazing and trying on all the outfits was super fun!"

The most special moment:

"My most special moment was walking down the aisle during the Hindu ceremony, accompanied by my brother/cousins, watching my handsome groom standing there with my parents and in-laws. I remember seeing my mom and dad watching me walk with tears of joy in their eyes."
