10 Apr Rona + Steve’s Indian Wedding Marina Del Rey
I LOVE everything about Indian Weddings, especially the vivid colors used both in wedding decor, florals and the beautiful wedding dresses. I had the pleasure of planning Rona and Steve’s Indian wedding this past November at the Marina Del Rey Marriott in Los Angeles. I have to say I also love getting to know the couple and their families. Both Steve and Rona had a great sense of humor and were so fun to work with. The gorgeous Indian bride’s family was from the state of Gujarati in India and the groom’s family was from the Punjab state. Though they shared many similar traditions – each had their own unique customs the couple and their families celebrated throughout the day.
Festivities started early on wedding day with hair and makeup for the bride starting as early as 5:30 am! Installation of the Mandap started just as early as Three Petals transformed the Bayview Room on the top floor. It was an overcast day in LA but nonetheless gorgeous. The floor to ceiling windows in Bayview made for a spectacular backdrop. The groom made his entrance on a white horse for the Baraat in traditional Punjab clothes utilizing the side and valet area of the Marriott Marina Del Rey. Lunch followed soon after the ceremony on the hotels very own helipad adjacent to the Bayview room. Other fun events included the the couple being driven off in a Rolls Royce for their customary Vidai tradition only to return in preparation for the reception in the California Ballroom. The new Mr. and Mrs. danced the night away with 300+ of their closest friends…including music, drums, sparkler blasts and their very own Bollywood dancers! All vendor credits below.
