This morning we woke up craving an extra dose of gorgeous with our coffee so we looked to the incomparable Ian Grant Photography to deliver and as promised, they did. So now we can totally ughbsess over the stunning Hindu ceremony of Aarti & Sukrant - two totes fab doctors who sought out a unique LA wedding and nailed it. The marvelous ceremony took place at Villa Sancti Di Bella Vista, a private estate in Malibu, perfect for the couples 300 closest a friends and fam. The design for the Hindu ceremony maintained traditional Indian wedding colors (gold, red, and orange), but the mandap was more organic and fitting with the outdoor location. The handsome groom made his entrance in the colorful baraat parade on a large white horse with celebratory music, drums, and dancing family members. Uber-festive! After the ceremony, the couple opted for a romantic photo op on the beach where the beautiful bride changed from her red ceremony sari to a beautiful coral sari. One of our favorite trends made an appearance at this Malibu soirée, long rectangular tables, which were decorated with vivid fuschia and coral colored peonies and garden roses organically placed amongst twisted driftwood branches and candles. Enjoy!
