We love Indian weddings. The colors and the customs are so beautiful and Renuka and Adam’s wedding was no exception. The Bride and Groom got ready at the Ritz Carlton where they had their first look. After that we went to The Casino San Clemente for the much anticipated baraat and ceremony. Smita and her team at Ethnic Essence created an incredible mandap. The colors worked perfectly with the The Casino and she even laid down matching fabric on the ceremony aisle. Nice touch. Later on we were equally impressed with the ballroom. The way Smita used the lighting and color really maximized the grandeur of the domed ceiling. Adam came in on a majestic white horse ushered in by his student’s band. It was the first time we’ve ever seen a baraat led by a marching band and it made for a super fun time. Right before Adam met Renuka’s parents, he performed a sax solo that was all soul. It was amazing! As the ceremony got underway, the guests were served delicious Mango Lassi and watched as Renuka and Adam pledged their love to one another. They incorporated a little Western tradition as they read their vows to one another and exchanged rings. After the ceremony we took a walk along the beach and then it was on to the party. Renuka and Adam looked very elegant in their evening outfits and had a a great time watching the dance performers. It was an unforgettable evening and we wish Renuka and Adam all the happiness life has to offer.
Delicious Mango Lassi.
Glittery musical notes were Adam’s touch to the centerpieces.
