Every time Paul Ortiz Films drops yet another Indian wedding reel on the editorial desks of Maharani Weddings, we know that a special treat is in store. Paul’s team has an eye for creativity and the cinematography experience that you are about to embrace speaks for itself. No doubt in my mind that is exactly why Shivangi and Raj chose this stellar team to capture their biggest day(s) and the aftermath is true beauty. The bride and groom held their extremely auspicious event (did you catch that cocktail party on a private boat!) in sunny San Diego with both Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa AND Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel serving as the premier venues for the outdoor wedding and ballroom reception. If you are going to get married in California, take advantage of the wedding and opt for an outdoor wedding! Elegant Events Planning and Design created one of our favorite mandaps of all time! (We won’t spill the glitter, so you will just have to take a look for yourself!) The bride donned an assortment of designer lenghas and with the extra magical touch of Beauty by NG Nida Gazi for the ceremony, well, it is no wonder that Raj fell in love with this gorgeous Maharani. With Smita Mohindra and her team Ethnic Essence Couture Events spearheading this event, the wedding marched on to the beat of the Bollywood drums ensuring that the bride could soak in all the love with no worrries in sight. Every linen, chair, and family member were in place and ready to go, leaving the bride and groom feeling relaxed and open to enjoying their beautiful day. We are anxiously waiting all the stills from premier California photographer Matei Horvath. But, we have a visual masterpiece awaiting you down below. So hit play not only to view yet another gorgeous Indian wedding, but to experience a cinematic marvel that weaves together all the beautiful memories of Shivangi and Raj. Take my word, a box of napkins would be ideal after you hear the overlay of speeches from loved ones that truly touched my heart.

Until tomorrow Maharanis!
