Wedding photos at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

It was last fall that I first heard from Roshni and Nevan about capturing their multi-day Indian wedding in Orange County. I just love photographing Indian weddings, with so many rituals and vibrant colors, and was really excited when they booked me after just a few emails. They were planning a Sangeet at the Harborside Ballroom in Newport Beach, followed by a huge day filled with ceremonies and a reception for the wedding at Pasea Hotel and Spa.

Roshni and Nevan met at the University of Michigan several years back during a cultural dance class. Her family is from Illinois and his from Michigan, with around 300 of their family and friends flying out from the Mid-West for their Southern California celebrations. It was such a pleasure getting to know their families, with both the bride and groom having three siblings, and to be a part of what was an incredible weekend.

Sangeet at Harborside Ballroom:

In the late afternoon, my second photographer and I drove down from Los Angeles to Newport Beach and the Harborside Ballroom where Roshni and Nevan’s Sangeet was taking place. We began with some portraits of the couple overlooking the waters of Newport Beach and a few with their immediate family members, including a creative one of Roshni’s brother taking a selfie with all the siblings.

Then the families danced their way into the Harborside Ballroom to kick off the Sangeet celebrations. The evening began with some beautifully decorated pots being passed from head to head, before Roshni and Nevan performed the first dance for their family and friends. This was followed by performances by all the siblings together, with the dance floor ignited by their colorful saris and traditional Indian wedding attire.

Roshni’s side of the family then took to the stage before Nevan’s family reciprocated with dance performances of their own. In addition to all the action on the dance floor, I tried to capture the reactions of the bride and groom as they soaked up this special moment.

Getting ready photos at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

The next morning started bright and early at around 5:30AM with the bride and groom getting ready in separate suites at the Pasea Hotel and Spa. While my second photographer was with Nevan and his groomsmen, I was with Roshni and the girls as they made their final preparations.

I captured close-up shots as Roshni had the final touches applied to her makeup and shared in this special moment with her female family and friends, as well as some candids with her mom as she helped to secure Roshni’s jewelry. I also grabbed a few photos of Roshni admiring her gorgeous red wedding sari as it hung in the window of her suite, as well as some portraits once she was dressed and ready to go with her white floral bouquet.

Pre-ceremony portraits at Pasea Hotel And Resort:

Before their wedding at Pasea Hotel and Resort got underway, Roshni and Nevan had decided on having a first look in a quiet courtyard. They were both looking absolutely incredible (Nevan even had a sword!) and I photographed Roshni walking towards her groom and their reactions at seeing one another. We used the time available for a short portrait session in the beautifully decorated courtyard, with both Roshni and Nevan radiant in this loved-up moment.

Baraat photos at Pasea Hotel And Resort:

According to Indian wedding tradition, the groom’s family processes through the street to meet the bride’s family in what is known as the Baraat. I photographed Nevan’s family as they danced their way towards the Pasea Hotel and Spa, with the groom himself arriving by tractor!

After pausing to pray once they arrived at the hotel, Nevan’s family members then played a fun game where the men sized one another up and wrestled each other into the air. Everyone was in such high spirits and I tried to capture all the energy from multiple angles.

Then Roshni’s mom came out to greet Nevan and placed a bindi on his forehead, although he was stopped from entering the hotel by the bride’s female family members who playfully demanded money. Luckily, he agreed and after cutting a ribbon, was allowed in for the start of the wedding ceremony.

Ceremony photos at Pasea Hotel And Resort:

Roshni’s family is Hindu and Nevan’s is Sikh, so they were honoring both faiths with two different ceremonies. The Hindu ceremony was held on the lawns of the Pasea Hotel and Resort, with a gorgeous mandap stage set up. I photographed Nevan being escorted down the aisle by his parents, then his reaction as Roshni entered with her male relatives.

There were lots of traditional Hindu rituals to capture, with the bride and groom placing flower garlands around one another’s necks and feeding one another sweets. I grabbed both close-up shots as they exchanged rings in this undeniably gorgeous setting and some wide-angle photos looking down the flower-adorned aisle.

After being officially married according to Hindu custom and making their recessional walk down the aisle, it was then time for the Sikh ceremony within the Pasea Hotel and Spa ballroom. The men were seated on one side and the women on the other as prayers were said, offerings made and music played in what was a really tranquil ceremony. I photographed Roshni and Nevan as they circled the Sikh altar and the reactions of not only the couple, but also their parents.

After the Sikh ceremony, we grabbed a few couple portraits and bridal party portraits back at the Hindu ceremony site. Then it was time for Roshni to symbolically say goodbye to her family and be invited into Nevan’s family. The couple had decided to do this in style – in a black Porsche to be exact!

There were emotional farewells as Roshni said goodbye to her parents and grandma at one of the hotel’s exits and stepped into the Porsche with Nevan. They then drove along the coast of Huntington Beach and back around to the main foyer of the Pasea Hotel and Spa where the groom’s family was waiting. They welcomed her with dancing and a few Sikh rituals, before sitting down in the foyer where the couple drank milk together.

Post-ceremony portraits at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

After a couple of hours well-earned rest for the couple and their wedding guests, I met up with Roshni again in her hotel suite as she was getting ready for the reception. I photographed as she had her makeup reapplied and it was especially touching when her brothers stopped by to assist her!

Then she and Nevan had a second “first look”, with Roshni now in a gorgeous red and gold sari while Nevan was in a sparkling blue suit. He even had a shave during the break, transforming into a new married man! I grabbed a few portraits of the newly weds around the rustic exterior of the Pasea Hotel and Spa as they danced, embraced and soaked up this moment.

Reception photos at Pasea Hotel And Spa:

After what had been an incredible experience photographing Roshni and Nevan’s multi-day wedding at the Pasea Hotel and Spa, it was time for the final event with their ballroom reception. The couple made their grand entrance into this glamorous venue to be congratulated by family and friends, followed by an Indian dance by a professional group.

There were touching parental dances to capture, followed by speeches and toasts from the immediate family on both sides, then the party really got under way. Roshni, Nevan and their wedding guests partied well into the night, with plenty of color and energy to capture.

Both the bride and groom were lifted onto the shoulders of their family and friends, while young and old let loose to celebrate. I tried to get in amongst the action and capture the dance floor from multiple angles so Roshni and Nevan would remember this evening for the rest of their lives.
