On November 27, 2013, Samantha & Rishi became husband and wife. These two are so cute and I love how Samantha has a massive smile on her face throughout her wedding day. They started the day at the W Hotel in Hollywood, where make up artist, Lulu, got Samantha ready for her big day. Her wedding lengha is so beautiful and it has put a spin on traditional wear by the combination of patterns with the blue fabric covered in polka dots. It’s refreshing to see a unique wedding dress that is memorable and stunning. The top half of the lengha matches her incredible dark mehndi (henna). It’s many bride’s dream to have dark henna for their wedding as this is when it looks its best. Some believe the darker the mendhi, the stronger the love between husband and wife. You know what some ancient beliefs are like though, I simply think it looks more beautiful when its dark.
At the start of wedding videos, I really enjoy a speech by close friend or relative as this gives you an insight of the couples personality and love story! First look photography and videography is becoming increasingly popular. Having the chance to be able to see each other alone and have it captured is a great memory method before the business of the ceremony and reception begin.
To combine the two cultures, they started with a traditional Gujarati Wedding ceremony at the Taglyan. Their wedding was conducted by Pundit Dilip Bhatt. After the ceremony, it was time to incorporate Samantha’s traditions by having a tea ceremony.
The team at Robles Media stated “This couple was extra special to us because we have known them for a few years. The groom’s mother, Poorvi, is a close vendor friend to Robles Video, she produces some of the most beautiful Indian invitations in our area.”
