Neha & Ankur :: Pre-Wedding Events :: Coronado Island Marriott Resort

Although Neha works & resides in San Diego, her family travelled from all over the world including Zimbabwe Africa to take part in the celebrations joining Neha with Ankur.  Ankur’s friends & family, traveling from Texas, together made this a destination wedding fit for the beautiful Coronado Bayshore.  I had the pleasure of spending the entire weekend at the scenic Coronado Island Marriott Resort San Diego for Neha & Ankur’s 5 wedding events.  Another marathon weekend indeed, began with the traditional hindu gujarati pre-wedding functions of Neha’s GrahaShanti & Pithi, followed by her Saatak, and concluded the evening with their Welcome Dinner Party… fully decked out with Casino tables, Chaat carts, dessert & beverage stations, Karaoke, and well we can’t forget our roots… Garba!

Priyanka + Anuj :: Engagement Session :: Pasadena

Happy Monday FBers!  Can I just take a second this morning to show off just how HOT and CHIC my new bride & groom-to-be are?!  Priyanka & Anuj will be tying the knot this August and requested an engagement photo session that was a bit edgy yet fun, dramatic yet warm, and vibrant yet chic.  They selected the beautiful Pasadena City Hall area as their backdrop and I couldn’t have been happier :) A gorgeous setting for an even more stunning couple!
