I wrapped up my spring wedding season with Ari and Akhil, for their elegant wedding at King Family Vineyard. Their classic decor and whimsical white color pallet was so perfect. This was one of the largest bridal parties I’ve ever had, but seeing all of the gals in white was such a fun touch! After 11 years of dating, through college and law school and everything in between, they celebrate their incredible relationship in an epic mountainside ceremony and dance party with their friends… and when I say epic, I mean I filled up a whole memory card just during the dancing portion of the reception, there was not a slow moment all night! 

Their wedding day featured so many personal touches, including having their friends perform the ceremony for the perfect mix of emotions and throwback stories. Ari and Akhil blended their Indian and Mexican cultures in so many elements throughout the day, this included ceremony traditions and incredible dance music to honor both of their families. It was incredible to see how close their families had become after so many years of dating, and the joy that they showed finally be united. 

I am so grateful I was able to document their incredible wedding day and have no doubt Ari and Akhil will have many more adventures to come. Keep scrolling to my favorite from their wedding day!

Thank you to the incredible Vendor team!
