Wedding in Orange, CA | Nitasha & Krishna

This November, I photographed one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever witnessed. On November 3rd, Nitasha and Krishna tied the knot in a gorgeous ceremony – the details of which I'm covering in this blog.

About The Couple

Nitasha & Krishna had a very 21st-century way of meeting one another. They met on a dating app when Nitasha changed her location from California to London as a joke! They spoke on the phone for a few months (during Covid), then she visited Krishna in London. And well…the rest is history. Despite the long travel distance, I was pleasantly surprised to see many of Krishna's friends and family make the trip for their wedding.

The Mehndi Party

The first day I photographed was the Mehndi party. Both Nitasha and Krishna were in off-white attire that looked stunning with the brown of the henna. The invites for the ceremony were, for me, one of the highlights of the event. It was a little floral box with Lord Ganesha in the center. Tassels of bells hung around the idol.

As for the venue, it was a backyard transformation -- Roselyne & Co. Events' specialty. The colors in the decor were as vibrant as they could get, which offered a cool contrast to the wedding outfits of the bride and groom. The seats were covered in fuschia drapes with gold foil imprinted on them. The hints of gold continued in several other elements. The guests also wore eye-catching colors, all in Indian attire.

All About the Wedding Ceremony

The next day began with the getting ready ceremony, followed by the baraat, the wedding ceremony, and the reception. For Nitasha's getting ready pictures, I headed to her room, where she was dressed in a beautiful pastel pink lehenga with floral work beautifully strewn on the dress. She paired the outfit with traditional Indian jewelry from Zaveri, which looked ravishing on her.

Our groom, on the other hand, was also dressed in a similar beige and floral outfit. The couple perfectly complemented each other, and it looked like their outfits brought their wedding invitations to life, which were made to match the floral print of their attire. Before Krishna got on the horse to head out for the baraat, I snuck in a few pictures of him with his outfit, complete with the turban and pearl necklace.

In the baraat, the groom's side danced their hearts out as they reached the bride's residence, where they were greeted with tilak and garland. It was now time for the wedding ceremony in this gorgeously decorated venue. I loved the synchrony in the event's pastel flowers, decor, and bridal outfits.

The Reception

After the wedding ceremony, we took a couple of portraits in the backyard. Next, we prepped for the reception. In contrast to the exuberance of the marriage ceremony, the reception had a more elegant aesthetic. Nitasha slipped into a diamond-like lehenga dress, and Krisha into his solid black tux. Loads of white roses dotted the scene, which looked otherworldly under the bright lights.

I had so much fun capturing this stunning celebration! I wish Natasha and Krishna a very happy married life.
